Probabilistic Programming and Bayesian Methods for Hackers
by Cameron Davidson-Pilon
Publisher: GitHub, Inc. 2013
This book is designed as an introduction to Bayesian inference from a computational understanding-first, and mathematics-second, point of view. The book assumes no prior knowledge of Bayesian inference nor probabilistic programming.

The desire to understand Pi, the challenge, and originally the need, to calculate ever more accurate values of Pi, has challenged mathematicians for many many centuries, and Pi has provided compelling examples of computational mathematics.

Computers have rapidly become so pervasive in mathematics that future generations may look back to this day as a golden dawn. The article gives a survey of mathematical proofs that rely on computer calculations and formal proofs.
The aim of this text is to develop an informal, light introduction to the world of fractal geometry and to inspire further research into the subject, whether your interest is of a pure, applied or even recreational nature.
