Book Description
Reinforcement Learning (RL) is a learning paradigm concerned with learning to control a system so as to maximize a numerical performance measure that expresses a longterm objective.What distinguishes reinforcement learning from supervised learning is that only partial feedback is given to the learner about the learner's predictions.
Further, the predictions may have long term effects through influencing the future state of the controlled system. Thus, time plays a special role. The goal in reinforcement learning is to develop efficient learning algorithms, as well as to understand the algorithms' merits and limitations.
Reinforcement learning is of great interest because of the large number of practical applications that it can be used to address, ranging from problems in artificial intelligence to operations research or control engineering.
In this book, we focus on those algorithms of reinforcement learning that build on the powerful theory of dynamic programming. We give a fairly comprehensive catalog of learning problems, describe the core ideas, note a large number of state of the art algorithms, followed by the discussion of their theoretical properties and limitations.

Distributional Reinforcement Learning (Marc G. Bellemare, et al)
Distributional reinforcement learning is a new mathematical formalism for thinking about decisions. This first comprehensive guide provides a new mathematical formalism for thinking about decisions from a probabilistic perspective.

Reinforcement Learning: An Introduction, Second Edition
It provides a clear and simple account of the key ideas and algorithms of reinforcement learning that is accessible to readers in all the related disciplines. Focuses on core online learning algorithms, with the more mathematical material set off in shaded boxes.

Reinforcement Learning and Optimal Control (Dimitri Bertsekas)
The purpose of the book is to consider large and challenging multistage decision problems, which can be solved in principle by dynamic programming and optimal control, but their exact solution is computationally intractable.

The HundredPage Machine Learning Book (Andriy Burkov)
Everything you really need to know in Machine Learning in a hundred pages! This book provides a great practical guide to get started and execute on ML within a few days without necessarily knowing much about ML apriori.

Understanding Machine Learning: From Theory to Algorithms
Explains the principles behind the automated learning approach and the considerations underlying its usage. Provides an extensive theoretical account of the fundamental ideas underlying machine learning and the mathematical derivations.

Foundations of Machine Learning (Mehryar Mohri, et al)
This book is a general introduction to machine learning. It covers fundamental modern topics in machine learning while providing the theoretical basis and conceptual tools needed for the discussion and justification of algorithms.

Probabilistic Machine Learning: An Introduction (Kevin Murphy)
This book is a comprehensive introduction to machine learning that uses probabilistic models and inference as a unifying approach. It is written in an informal, accessible style, complete with pseudocode for the most important algorithms.

Machine Learning Yearning (Andrew Ng)
You will learn how to align on ML strategies in a team setting, as well as how to set up development (dev) sets and test sets. After finishing this book, you will have a deep understanding of how to set technical direction for a machine learning project.
