An Introduction to Statistical Learning: with Applications in R (Springer Texts in Statistics)
Lowest new price: $55.94
Lowest used price: $30.71
List price: $79.99
Author: Gareth James

An Introduction to Statistical Learning provides an accessible overview of the field of statistical learning, an essential toolset for making sense of the vast and complex data sets that have emerged in fields ranging from biology to finance to marketing to astrophysics in the past twenty years. This book presents some of the most important modeling and prediction techniques, along with relevant applications. Topics include linear regression, classification, resampling methods, shrinkage approaches, treebased methods, support vector machines, clustering, and more. Color graphics and realworld examples are used to illustrate the methods presented. Since the goal of this textbook is to facilitate the use of these statistical learning techniques by practitioners in science, industry, and other fields, each chapter contains a tutorial on implementing the analyses and methods presented in R, an extremely popular open source statistical software platform. Two of the authors cowrote The Elements of Statistical Learning (Hastie, Tibshirani and Friedman, 2nd edition 2009), a popular reference book for statistics and machine learning researchers. An Introduction to Statistical Learning covers many of the same topics, but at a level accessible to a much broader audience. This book is targeted at statisticians and nonstatisticians alike who wish to use cuttingedge statistical learning techniques to analyze their data. The text assumes only a previous course in linear regression and no knowledge of matrix algebra.

Lost in Math: How Beauty Leads Physics Astray
Lowest new price: $19.67
Lowest used price: $19.82
List price: $30.00
Author: Sabine Hossenfelder

A contrarian argues that modern physicists' obsession with beauty has given us wonderful math but bad science
Whether pondering black holes or predicting discoveries at CERN, physicists believe the best theories are beautiful, natural, and elegant, and this standard separates popular theories from disposable ones. This is why, Sabine Hossenfelder argues, we have not seen a major breakthrough in the foundations of physics for more than four decades. The belief in beauty has become so dogmatic that it now conflicts with scientific objectivity: observation has been unable to confirm mindboggling theories, like supersymmetry or grand unification, invented by physicists based on aesthetic criteria. Worse, these "too good to not be true" theories are actually untestable and they have left the field in a culdesac. To escape, physicists must rethink their methods. Only by embracing reality as it is can science discover the truth.

Quantum Mechanics: The Theoretical Minimum
Lowest new price: $12.40
Lowest used price: $12.55
List price: $18.99
Author: Leonard Susskind
Brand: Basic Books AZ

From the bestselling author of The Theoretical Minimum, a DIY introduction to the math and science of quantum mechanics. First he taught you classical mechanics. Now, physicist Leonard Susskind has teamed up with data engineer Art Friedman to present the theory and associated mathematics of the strange world of quantum mechanics.
In this followup to the New York Times bestselling The Theoretical Minimum, Susskind and Friedman provide a lively introduction to this famously difficult field, which attempts to understand the behavior of subatomic objects through mathematical abstractions. Unlike other popularizations that shy away from quantum mechanics' weirdness, Quantum Mechanics embraces the utter strangeness of quantum logic. The authors offer crystalclear explanations of the principles of quantum states, uncertainty and time dependence, entanglement, and particle and wave states, among other topics, and each chapter includes exercises to ensure mastery of each area. Like The Theoretical Minimum, this volume runs parallel to Susskind's eponymous Stanford Universityhosted continuing education course.
An approachable yet rigorous introduction to a famously difficult topic, Quantum Mechanics provides a tool kit for amateur scientists to learn physics at their own pace.

The Elegant Universe: Superstrings, Hidden Dimensions, and the Quest for the Ultimate Theory
Lowest new price: $1.98
Lowest used price: $1.97
List price: $17.95
Author: Brian Greene
Brand: W W Norton Company

The international bestseller that inspired a major Nova special and sparked a new understanding of the universe, now with a new preface and epilogue. Brian Greene, one of the world's leading string theorists, peels away layers of mystery to reveal a universe that consists of eleven dimensions, where the fabric of space tears and repairs itself, and all matter―from the smallest quarks to the most gargantuan supernovas―is generated by the vibrations of microscopically tiny loops of energy. The Elegant Universe makes some of the most sophisticated concepts ever contemplated accessible and thoroughly entertaining, bringing us closer than ever to understanding how the universe works.
There is an illconcealed skeleton in the closet of physics: "As they are currently formulated, general relativity and quantum mechanics cannot both be right." Each is exceedingly accurate in its field: general relativity explains the behavior of the universe at large scales, while quantum mechanics describes the behavior of subatomic particles. Yet the theories collide horribly under extreme conditions such as black holes or times close to the big bang. Brian Greene, a specialist in quantum field theory, believes that the two pillars of physics can be reconciled in superstring theory, a theory of everything. Superstring theory has been called "a part of 21stcentury physics that fell by chance into the 20th century." In other words, it isn't all worked out yet. Despite the uncertainties"string theorists work to find approximate solutions to approximate equations"Greene gives a tour of string theory solid enough to satisfy the scientifically literate. Though Ed Witten of the Institute for Advanced Study is in many ways the human hero of The Elegant Universe, it is not a humansideofphysics story. Greene's focus throughout is the science, and he gives the nonspecialist at least an illusion of understandingor the sense of knowing what it is that you don't know. And that is traditionally the first step on the road to knowledge. Mary Ellen Curtin

All of Statistics: A Concise Course in Statistical Inference (Springer Texts in Statistics)
Lowest new price: $57.99
Lowest used price: $47.00
List price: $99.00
Author: Larry Wasserman
Brand: Springer

Taken literally, the title "All of Statistics" is an exaggeration. But in spirit, the title is apt, as the book does cover a much broader range of topics than a typical introductory book on mathematical statistics. This book is for people who want to learn probability and statistics quickly. It is suitable for graduate or advanced undergraduate students in computer science, mathematics, statistics, and related disciplines.
The book includes modern topics like nonparametric curve estimation, bootstrapping, and classification, topics that are usually relegated to followup courses. The reader is presumed to know calculus and a little linear algebra. No previous knowledge of probability and statistics is required. Statistics, data mining, and machine learning are all concerned with collecting and analysing data.

Flatland: A Romance of Many Dimensions (Dover Thrift Editions)
Lowest new price: $1.34
Lowest used price: $0.10
List price: $3.00
Author: Edwin A. Abbott
Brand: imusti

This masterpiece of science (and mathematical) fiction is a delightfully unique and highly entertaining satire that has charmed readers for more than 100 years. The work of English clergyman, educator and Shakespearean scholar Edwin A. Abbott (18381926), it describes the journeys of A. Square, a mathematician and resident of the twodimensional Flatland, where womenthin, straight linesare the lowliest of shapes, and where men may have any number of sides, depending on their social status. Through strange occurrences that bring him into contact with a host of geometric forms, Square has adventures in Spaceland (three dimensions), Lineland (one dimension) and Pointland (no dimensions) and ultimately entertains thoughts of visiting a land of four dimensions—a revolutionary idea for which he is returned to his twodimensional world. Charmingly illustrated by the author, Flatland is not only fascinating reading, it is still a firstrate fictional introduction to the concept of the multiple dimensions of space. "Instructive, entertaining, and stimulating to the imagination." — Mathematics Teacher.
