# Prob/Stat for Data Sci: Math + R + Data

My new book, Probability and Statistics for Data Science: Math + R + Data, pub. by the CRC Press, was released on June 24!

This book arose from an open-source text I wrote and have been teaching from. The open source version will still be available, though rather different from the published one.

This is a math stat book, but different from all others, as the subtitle states: Math + R + Data. Even the topic ordering is rather different, with a goal of bringing in data science-relevant material as early as possible.

I’ve placed an excerpt from the book at http://tinyurl.com/y6hf7x66. I believe it epitomizes the intent and style of the book. Also, I’ve placed the front matter at http://tinyurl.com/yy9hx6db

1. Congrats and thanks for the new book! By the way, or do we find the open source material?? 😛

Valuable book hits the sweet spot between computation, math and stats. I’m finding the topic mix to be well thought out. Is there a list of corrections, perhaps on the way?

1. Thanks so much for the kind words. I definitely want to set up an Errata site. If you find any, please let me know!

Hi, I have recently started your book, and I am really enjoying it! Are the solutions of the exercises available somewhere?
Thank you very much!

Thank you very much, I appreciate it!
My background is not on maths and stats so the solutions are really helpful for feedback.

4. Frank Ma says:

wondering where can I find the solution to the exercise at the end of each chapter?

Dear Norman Matloff, I know you are working on The Art of Data Science and regtools, but maybe one of your students can post his solutions to the exercises in PSforDS.

1. I do have some solutions, at heather.cs.ucdavis.edu/PSDS. It’s true that I need more. If there are any problems of particular interest to you, I’ll write those up right away.
