|Week 1|| Iain Murray's cribsheet, Sam Roweis' notes, A short introduction to R , Plotting with ggplot2 |
Useful references: Review of probability and statistics (Stanford notes) , R Manual
|Week 2||R Markdown: Tutorial 1 , Tutorial 2 (we will use this for the homeworks) |
Section 5 on eigenvalues of Richard Shewchuk's tutorial on the conjugate gradient method
|Week 3||Complexity and big-O notation: Link 1 , Link 2 Link 3 |
This is a nice introduction to big-O notation
Knapsack problem (ignore the C code)
The Needleman-Wunsch algorithm
|Week 4||Clustering: Read Section 10.3 of An Introduction to Statistical Learning |
MLE for the multivariate Gaussian. See Sections 2 and 3 here .
|Week 5|| MLE for the multivariate Gaussian. See Sections 2 and 3 here . |
Jensen's inequality here . Kullback-Liebler divergence (Page 2 here ).
|Week 6|| Tony Jebara's' introduction to exponential family distributions. |
Jeff Bilmes' tutorial on the EM algorithm.
If you're feeling ambitious, here is the original paper on the EM algorithm.
Some project ideas here , I'll try to add to this. You can search for others on other course webpages. In general, make sure your project allows you to code up some non-trivial algorithm (rather than just use packages)
|Week 7|| Some notes on gradient descent here . This is also useful. |
|Week 9|| Jeff Gills's introduction to MCMC. |
Andrieu et al.'s introduction to MCMC.
Radford Neal, in rather more detail on MCMC.
