Hello there!
I have 2 questions: one about a book and the second one about similar, but different topic.

1. Can this book help me in undestand better university math for computer scientists ?

2. Is there also something similar (for programmers) but for English? I mean, it's hard for me to understand even Java Course hosted by Oracle University or Jeanne's books.

P.S. maybe this question isn't in the right forum, but also would like to read the book "Math for programmers", that's why I'm posting here.

Yes. It has maths in for transforms (matrices), moving objects, etc.

I saw it has matrices and movings which are algebra and dicrete math, but is there also some stochastic or especially proofs (and how to understand them) ?

Hi Mike,

This book is not math for computer science -- a lot of the math you meet in a CS degree is about how to analyze programs, rather than how to write them.

My book, Math for Programmers, focuses on some of the common math that goes into real-world software applications.  It won't teach you how to figure out the time or space complexity of an algorithm, etc., but it will teach you how to make 3D graphics, a real-time video game with a simple physics engine, and some simple machine learning programs.

While it's not math for CS, I think it should help you improve your math skills and be more comfortable with whatever math you meet down the road!

Thanks for your interest
-Paul
