Statistical Foundations of Data Science gives a thorough introduction to commonly used statistical models and contemporary statistical machine-learning techniques and algorithms, along with their mathematical insights and statistical theories. It aims to serve as a graduate-level textbook and a research monograph on high-dimensional statistics, sparsity and covariance learning, machine learning and statistical inference. It includes ample exercises that involve both theoretical studies as well as empirical applications.
