I was searching for latent class logit model for conjoint analysis. i found a paper which has equations for this model.

I have co-workers who knows how to decipher the meaning of these equations and write these algorithms in any language, from scratch. One of my co-worker told me that he understood what is written in this paper and can write the algorithm in R. My co-workers mostly have masters degree in engineering. I have done graduation in accounting and fortunately landed in this job of analytics. I am very keen to learn this art/science of deciphering equations in research paper. Can anyone suggest which discipline is it or lets say any recommendation of online course or books that can help me learn this? I will be indebted for life.

Thanks!

Maybe you could be a little more specific: which equation are you actually talking about? You mean every equation? (in this case, well it's a math course you're looking for) Only the ones with probabilities? With matrix operations? – tlorieul – 2016-08-14T08:56:08.177

@tlorieul i have hyperlinked this in the question text. Find below the link however. http://wak2.web.rice.edu/bio/My%20Reprints/Concomitantvariablelatentclassmodels.pdf
