Machine learning algorithms make significant use of linear algebra and optimization techniques. Describing the concepts and the implementation of linear algebra, calculus, and optimization algorithms in detail would have added significant complexity to the book and distracted the reader from the essence of machine learning.
This appendix lists a set of basic elements of linear algebra and optimization mentioned throughout the book. It also summarizes the coding practices that have been covered, and acquaints the reader with basic knowledge of financial analysis.
The following is a partial list of coding practices and design techniques used throughout the book.
