Pattern Recognition and Machine Learning

This book by Christopher M Bishop is probably the best textbook available to date. Almost every course (online/offline) will refer this book. The contents ( its extensive as well as intensive) might overwhelm you. While this is not a book to read cover to cover, you should have this available when you want to get a deeper understanding of mathematics behind the algorithms you are working with.
