Book Description
This is the first textbook on pattern recognition to present the Bayesian viewpoint. The book presents approximate inference algorithms that permit fast approximate answers in situations where exact answers are not feasible.
It uses graphical models to describe probability distributions when no other books apply graphical models to machine learning. No previous knowledge of pattern recognition or machine learning concepts is assumed.
Familiarity with multivariate calculus and basic linear algebra is required, and some experience in the use of probabilities would be helpful though not essential as the book includes a selfcontained introduction to basic probability theory.

Bayesian Reasoning and Machine Learning (David Barber)
This practical introduction is ideally suited to computer scientists without a background in calculus and linear algebra. You'll develop analytical and problemsolving skills that equip them for the real world. Numerous examples and exercises are provided.

Gaussian Processes for Machine Learning (Carl E. Rasmussen)
This book provides a longneeded systematic and unified treatment of theoretical and practical aspects of Gaussian Processes (GPs) in machine learning. It deals with the supervisedlearning problem for both regression and classification.

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.

Understanding Machine Learning: From Theory to Algorithms
This book explains the principles behind the automated learning approach and the considerations underlying its usage. It provides an extensive theoretical account of the fundamental ideas underlying machine learning and the mathematical derivations that transform these principles into practical algorithms.

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.

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.
