This audiobook will teach you everything you need to know about probability in order to use it to your advantage. We shall start by exploring the very theory of probability and, later on, we shall discuss about the important role it plays in the fields of mathematics and science. Of course, we cannot even begin to think about probability without also considering the statistics and the inductive inferences. Therefore, we shall also approach these matters.
Principles of statistics are the basics of economics. Most of the time, people find such courses very boring and difficult. In fact statistics is really a boring thing. In this book you will hear that the whole course is detailed in an easy-to-understand way. While having a cup of tea, study it and get to know all about the principles of statistics. In simple words, it is a complete course that will help you in understanding the principles of statistics.
Almost all of the academic disciplines and professions require a certain level of skill in using and comprehending at least the basis of statistics and the procedures it implies. The aim of this guide is to help you master these skills and offer you an insight of the statistical concepts in order to be able to apply them, thus enabling you to better grasp opportunities in life.
In his most provocative and practical book yet, one of the foremost thinkers of our time redefines what it means to understand the world, succeed in a profession, contribute to a fair and just society, detect nonsense, and influence others. Citing examples ranging from Hammurabi to Seneca, Antaeus the Giant to Donald Trump, Nassim Nicholas Taleb shows how the willingness to accept one's own risks is an essential attribute of heroes, saints, and flourishing people in all walks of life.
Mathematics contains an important study field under the name chaos theory. Chaos theory studies the concept and behavior of highly insensitive dynamical systems. It also studies the behavior of dynamic systems in initial conditions, which often turn out to be super sensitive at a very high level. In chaos theory, this concept is referred as the butterfly effect, which is the main field of study in this theory.
Were it not for the calculus, mathematicians would have no way to describe the acceleration of a motorcycle or the effect of gravity on thrown balls and distant planets, or to prove that a man could cross a room and eventually touch the opposite wall. Just how calculus makes these things possible and in doing so finds a correspondence between real numbers and the real world is the subject of this dazzling book by a writer of extraordinary clarity and stylistic brio.

The principles and philosophy of success that Napoleon Hill outlined in his masterwork, The Laws of Success, and his international best seller, Think and Grow Rich, have served as the foundation for every motivational speaker since. Now, in these rare recordings, you will hear a complete and thorough exposition of Napoleon Hill's life-altering philosophy of personal achievement in his own voice. More than that, you will gain deeper insight into Hill's philosophy as you listen to him interpret and amplify the 17 universal principles of success.
Quantum theory is the most revolutionary discovery in physics since Newton. This book gives a lucid, exciting, and accessible account of the surprising and counterintuitive ideas that shape our understanding of the sub-atomic world. It does not disguise the problems of interpretation that still remain unsettled 75 years after the initial discoveries. The main text makes no use of equations, but there is a Mathematical Appendix for those desiring stronger fare.
The aim of machine learning is to train the computers or machine to learn on its own and make informed decisions in a relatively shorter time than what human beings can do. The primary objective of this audiobook is to provide you with all the ins and outs of Markov models, and unsupervised machine learning over a range of multi-faceted applications. Specifically, the audiobook will explore practical implementations of Markov models in a Python programming environment.
This is the true story behind Wall Street legend Richard Dennis, his disciples, the Turtles, and the trading techniques that made them millionaires. What happens when ordinary people are taught a system to make extraordinary money? Richard Dennis made a fortune on Wall Street by investing according to a few simple rules.
Thinking Statistically is the book that shows you how to think like a statistician, without worrying about formal statistical techniques. Along the way we learn how selection bias can explain why your boss doesn't know he sucks (even when everyone else does); how to use Bayes' theorem to decide if your partner is cheating on you; and why Mark Zuckerberg should never be used as an example for anything.
Economic forces are everywhere around you. But that doesn't mean you need to passively accept whatever outcome those forces might press upon you. Instead, with these 12 fast-moving and crystal clear lectures, you can learn how to use a small handful of basic nuts-and-bolts principles to turn those same forces to your own advantage.
What if the mystery of market crashes stems from a simple but total misunderstanding of our own minds? Could everything we think we know about ourselves - intelligence and rationality versus emotion and irrationality - be wildly off the mark? Simply put: yes. With these words, Denise Shull introduces her radical - and supremely rational - approach to risk. Her vision stems from the indisputable fact that human beings can't make any decision at all without emotion and that emotion gets the first - and last - word when it comes to our perceptions and judgments.
George Soros, called "a superstar among money managers" by The New York Times, shares the investment strategies he uses to read the mind of the market.
All our lives are constrained by limited space and time, limits that give rise to a particular set of problems. What should we do, or leave undone, in a day or a lifetime? How much messiness should we accept? What balance of new activities and familiar favorites is the most fulfilling? These may seem like uniquely human quandaries, but they are not: computers, too, face the same constraints, so computer scientists have been grappling with their version of such problems for decades.
With his characteristic eyebrow-raising behavior, Richard P. Feynman once provoked the wife of a Princeton dean to remark, "Surely you're joking, Mr. Feynman!" But the many scientific and personal achievements of this Nobel Prize-winning physicist are no laughing matter. Here, woven with his scintillating views on modern science, Feynman relates the defining moments of his accomplished life.
Best selling author Amir Aczel ( God's Equation) delves into the riddle of infinity, religion and science with "mad" mathematician Georg Cantor, in what Booklist calls "an indispensable book for anyone interested in the darker side of intellectual progress."
Whether you are a student struggling to fulfill a math or science requirement, or you are embarking on a career change that requires a higher level of math competency, A Mind for Numbers offers the tools you need to get a better grasp of that intimidating but inescapable field. Engineering professor Barbara Oakley knows firsthand how it feels to struggle with math. She flunked her way through high school math and science courses, before enlisting in the army immediately after graduation.
Analysis theory of any random phenomenon is known as probability. The main resource for the concept of probability is probability theory. Probability theory is said to be one of the most important branches of mathematics.
