Any recommendations? The books I have are very outdated. Extremely important to me are:(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

- worked examples #1 criteria. Need that bridge between theory and implementation.

- not overly heavy on theory (don't want to hire a PhD to explain it). I have an MS Engineering level education (PDE's was the last math class I took).

- would love the book to include Singular Value Decomposition (SVD) and Optimization techniques, though I have a feeling that a good treatment of Optimization would need to be in a separate book

Appreciate any/all suggestions. Thanks! :tongue2:
