## References and tutorials

Here are a few references and tutorials we think might be useful. They are arranged by topic in alphabetical order, with a short description indicating the level of difficulty. Many topics overlap, so for example, you might find useful information on Bayesian statistics in an image processing resource. Follow the links to the resources themselves, or at least to where you might obtain them. This is not intended to be an exhaustive list. There are many books out there on all these topics. If you have any suggestions for topics, or resources, please contact us!
