Yes, they also mention machine learning, which borrows from many
fields close to applied mathematics. Linear algebra, statistical
signal processing, statistical modelling, etc... I took a course
on statistical signal processing this year (using Hayes book +
extras) and experience without theoretical training would be
inefficient. You have to tailor the algorithms to the
characteristics in the signal...
