Welcome to our digital library! You will find here eBooks, articles and tutorials covering original, off-the-beaten-path content in machine learning, operations research, statistics, dynamical systems, mathematics and related topics. Written by Vincent Granville PhD, the emphasis is on applications, the style is compact, and many illustrations are provided, including source code and Excel spreadsheets. Concepts are explained in simple English, avoiding jargon and arcane theories. Yet new, unpublished research-level material is presented to the readers interested in digging deeper.
I am in the process of creating these new eBooks and articles. Sign up for our newsletter (below, see section 2) to receive updates when the first few books are written. The topics covered will include the following.
Articles, booklets, and books
Available here. In about 300 pages and 28 chapters it covers many new topics, offering a fresh perspective on the subject, including rules of thumb and recipes that are easy to automate or integrate in black-box systems, as well as new model-free, data-driven foundations to statistical science and predictive analytics. The approach focuses on robust techniques; it is bottom-up (from applications to theory), in contrast to the traditional top-down approach.
The material is accessible to practitioners with a one-year college-level exposure to statistics and probability. The compact and tutorial style, featuring many applications with numerous illustrations, is aimed at practitioners, researchers, and executives in various quantitative fields.
Available here. Full title: Applied Stochastic Processes, Chaos Modeling, and Probabilistic Properties of Numeration Systems (104 pages, 16 chapters.) This book is intended for professionals in data science, computer science, operations research, statistics, machine learning, big data, and mathematics. In 100 pages, it covers many new topics, offering a fresh perspective on the subject.
It is accessible to practitioners with a two-year college-level exposure to statistics and probability. The compact and tutorial style, featuring many applications (Blockchain, quantum algorithms, HPC, random number generation, cryptography, Fintech, web crawling, statistical testing) with numerous illustrations, is aimed at practitioners, researchers and executives in various quantitative fields.
