# Linear Algebra for Machine Learning book

## Open the black box of machine learning

Jumping into machine learning has never been easier. But libraries like TensorFlow and PyTorch hide the complexities from you. Looking under the hood is a **superpower**, and machine learning is written in the language of linear algebra.

**This book is the best way to learn it.**

### Make matrices your most powerful tool

Master linear algebra through intuitive and clear explanations with a focus on machine learning.

### Intuitive and clear explanations

Every concept is explained from the ground up, leading with intuition and examples. Mathematics does not have to be complicated.

### Math, with machine learning in mind

Focusing on math that is core to machine learning. No distractions, no detours.

## Who is this book for?

### Data scientists.

Machine learning-first approach to linear algebra. Master the art of storing, manipulating, and analyzing data.

### Engineers and developers.

All the practical knowledge you need to know about vectors and matrices, with easy explanations you wish you had in school.

### Students.

Whether it is your first course in linear algebra, or refreshing the topic after years: this book is for you.

## About the author

**Hi there! My name is Tivadar.**

I obtained my PhD in 2016 in the field of pure mathematics. As a postdoctoral researcher, I joined a computational biology group, where I fell in love with machine learning.

Understanding mathematics was a cheat code to supercharge my progress.

As I frequently helped my friends and colleagues to master the fundamental concepts of math and machine learning, I found my new passion in teaching.

Since then, education have become my single focus, and my mission is to make quality math education available for developers, engineers, and scientists.
