Book Description

The Beauty of Mathematics in Computer Science explains the mathematical fundamentals of information technology products and services we use every day, from Google Web Search to GPS Navigation, and from speech recognition to CDMA mobile services. The book was published in Chinese in 2011 and has sold more than 600,000 copies. Readers were surprised to find that many daily-used IT technologies were so tightly tied to mathematical principles. For example, the automatic classification of news articles uses the cosine law taught in high school.

The book covers many topics related to computer applications and applied mathematics including:

Natural language processing

Speech recognition and machine translation

Statistical language modeling

Quantitive measurement of information

Graph theory and web crawler

Pagerank for web search

Matrix operation and classification

Mathematical background of

Neural and Google’s deep learning

Jun Wu was a staff research scientist in Google who invented Google’s Chinese, Japanese, and Korean Web Search and was responsible for many Google . He wrote official blogs introducing Google technologies behind its products in very simple languages for Chinese Internet users from 2006-2010. The blogs had more than 2 million followers. Wu received PhD in computer science from Johns Hopkins University and has been working on speech recognition and natural language processing for more than 20 years. He was one of the earliest engineers of Google, managed many products of the company, and was awarded 19 US patents during his 10-year tenure there. Wu became a full-time VC investor and co-founded Amino Capital in Palo Alto in 2014 and is the author of eight books.
