New Book on Probability with R

September 6, 2012

(This article was first published on Statistical Machine Learning and Visualization » R-blog, and kindly contributed to R-bloggers)

My first book on probability is completed. HTML version is freely available at and print version coming soon at a discounted price. Also, check out chapters 4 and 5 (available in pdf format) of the upcoming second volume on R programming and R graphics. (single page viewer) (two page viewer) (table of contents) (R programming pdf version) (R graphics pdf version)

The book represents my best effort at capturing the part of probability that is necessary and sufficient for an in-depth understanding of machine learning and statistics. It does not cover statistics, which will be described in a later volume. The book is part of the Analysis of Data Project (TAOD), which provides educational material on the area of data analysis.

  • The project features comprehensive coverage of all relevant disciplines including probability, statistics, computing, and machine learning.
  • The content is almost self-contained and includes mathematical prerequisites and basic computing concepts.
  • The R programming language is used to demonstrate the contents. Full code is available, facilitating reproducibility of experiments and letting readers experiment with variations of the code.
  • The presentation is mathematically rigorous, and includes derivations and proofs in most cases.
  • HTML versions are freely available on the website Hardcopies are available at affordable prices.
