I have written this book from very simple to extremely challenging. I think the easiest part would be understood by an elementary student. The most difficult part may require some knowledge of advanced mathematics, which includes (advanced) calculus, linear algebra, real analysis and so on.

Who am I ?

I’m a research assistant in Institute of Statistical Science, Academia Sinica, Taipei, Taiwan. If you have any questions or suggestions, please feel free to email me.

(When this book is almost finished, I’ll provide my CV.)
