Fundamentals of Data Science -- Part I Inference and Experiment
Jared M. Maruskin
Jared M. Maruskin has a PhD in Applied Mathematics from the University of Michigan. He worked several years as a professor before transitioning into industry, where he does data science for marketing.
In Part I of this series, we cover basic statistical inference and experimentation, focusing on: * basic statistics * derivation and review of key distributions and their relations * hypothesis testing, including an in depth power analysis for the chi-squared statistic * experimentation, including A/B tests, stratification, one- and two-factor experiments, and an introduction to bandit algorithms, * maximum likelihood * gradient descent methods * introduction to survival analysis and stochastic processes, including empirical estimation of online survival and event processes The theory is illustrated with simulations in Python throughout the text.
Professional audience. Data scientists.
Book cover type
Something simple, elegant, that looks professional. At end, I would like a final PDF plus the accompanying InDesign CC files. I plan on publishing a Part II and Part III, and will be using the same template, with adjusted size / subtitle / blurb. (Since I don't have an InDesign subscription, I am hoping we can stay in touch and you could tweak the cover file for parts 2 and 3.) --- Ingram Spark In Design template is attached. Here are the details, just in case: Trim: 6.14" x 9.21" Color -- Standard Color Paperback: perfect bound. Gloss 314 pages. works out to 0.657" (16.688mm) spine
What to avoid
anything gimmicky, cartoons, probably most photos. Art should be simple, elegant, abstract.
Every design category has flexible pricing for all budgets. Book cover starts at €269.
It all began with a design brief.
A quick, interactive guide helped them understand their design style and captured exactly what they needed in their book cover.
Designers across the globe delivered design magic.
maruskir collaborated with designers to refine their ideas
When design entries come in, you can rate them so designers know what you’re looking for in your logo design.
99designs has great collaboration tools so you can pinpoint and capture your ideas
And then… they selected a winner!
Along the way, they met lots of talented designers…
We think contests are a super fun way to get design.
