How much math did you have to take to get your CS degree?

How much did you take as electives?

I took quite a few elective courses such as real analysis, abstract algebra and stochastic processes.

Are differential equations useful for CS? Obviously, they are used for simulations, but beyond that?

Diff eqs are also used in signal processing.

>>

>>7845852

signals and circuits both use diffy qs

That's more of a CE topic. I'm mostly interested in AI and optimization.

>>7845878

In that case you might be interested to know that backpropagation is a lot easier if you are good at differential equations, and implementing a neural net is much more efficient if you know linear algebra.

Really, pick up an AI book. It's all math.

>>

>>7845878

You don't need differential equations for that. You need DIFFERENCE equations. Those are used in the Kalman filter which is what is used in estimation of states. Also for AI the only math you need is logic, set theory and probability&statistics.

Up to and a focus on modern algebraic geometry and arithmetic geometry.

Graph theory: cryptography; math logic; linear, nonlinear, and discrete optimization; category theory; everything dealing with geometry.

Like what kind of AI book?

>>

>>7845897

Which book is this?

>>

>>7845850

Required:

Calc I, II, III, Diff eq (I have no idea why so much focus on this, should be more on discrete)

Discrete I, II (graph theory, various combinatorics (generating functions, etc), random other shit thrown in like formal logic and shit)

Linear Algebra

Probability/Statistics (although I wouldn't count this really)

Electives:

more graph theory

more combinatorics

abstract algebra (I think having this required instead of one of those required calc courses might actually benefit more, although so would more graph theory)

>>

I took math up to the things that use triangles (whatever the fuck it was called LOL), unfortunately I'm still unemployed. I just wanted to make video games man.

Artificial Intelligence: A Modern Approach by Russell and Norvig

16.6.2 A general formula for perfect information

>>

I wouldn't trust any books on AI man.

Would you buy a book on how to build a house that didn't even a house?

The answer is no way man.

Or in Spanish no way jose

>>7846562

Quality shitpost

>>

Linear Algebra should be required for all STEM majors, if it isn't already (idk i was math/physics major)
