The second edition of my book ‘Deep Learning from first principles:Second Edition- In vectorized Python, R and Octave’, is now available on Amazon, in both paperback ($14.99) and kindle ($9.99/Rs449/-) versions. Since this book is almost 70% code, all functions, and code snippets have been formatted to use the fixed-width font ‘Lucida Console’. In addition line numbers have been added to all code snippets. This makes the code more organized and much more readable. I have also fixed typos in the book

The book includes the following chapters

Table of Contents Preface 4 Introduction 6 1. Logistic Regression as a Neural Network 8 2. Implementing a simple Neural Network 23 3. Building a L- Layer Deep Learning Network 48 4. Deep Learning network with the Softmax 85 5. MNIST classification with Softmax 103 6. Initialization, regularization in Deep Learning 121 7. Gradient Descent Optimization techniques 167 8. Gradient Check in Deep Learning 197 1. Appendix A 214 2. Appendix 1 – Logistic Regression as a Neural Network 220 3. Appendix 2 - Implementing a simple Neural Network 227 4. Appendix 3 - Building a L- Layer Deep Learning Network 240 5. Appendix 4 - Deep Learning network with the Softmax 259 6. Appendix 5 - MNIST classification with Softmax 269 7.
