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.
