I work as a professional composer, and I also program most of my own software. I failed every year of math in high school.
I am studying Bayesian Probabilities in reference to music, and while I understand most of what is being said I can't help but feel progress would be greatly enhanced by a stronger foundation in the basics.
Similarly I have also been studying deep learning, restricted boltzmann machines and such.
What books are well regarded for concisely covering the foundations that lead to these disciplines?
