• Intelligence: A Very Short Introduction (Very Short Introductions): Books: Ian J. Deary - Amazon.com
People value their powers of thinking and most of us are interested in why some people seem to drive a highly tuned Rolls Royce brain while others potter along with a merely serviceable Ford Fiesta. This Very Short Introduction describes what psychologists have discovered about how and why people differ in their thinking powers. The book takes readers from no knowledge about the science of human intelligence to a stage where they are able to make judgements for themselves about some of the key questions about human mental ability differences. Each chapter deals with a central issue that is both scientifically lively and of considerable general interest, and is structured around a diagram which is explained in the course of the chapter. The issues discussed

Vector calculus (also called vector analysis) is a field of mathematics concerned with multivariate real analysis of vectors in two or more dimensions. It consists of a suite of formulas and problem solving techniques very useful for engineering and physics. Vector analysis has its origin in quaternion analysis, and was formulated by the American scientist, J. Willard Gibbs [1]. It concerns vector fields, which associate a vector to every point in space, and scalar fields, which associate a scalar to every point in space. For example, the temperature of a swimming pool is a scalar field: to each point we associate a scalar value of temperature. The water flow in the same pool is a vector field: to each point we associate a velocity vector.

Note: The summary of gradient, curl and divergence is particularly good.
• College Algebra - Math 116 - Lecture Notes by James Jones
These notes were written during the Fall 1997 semester to accompany Larson's College Algebra: A Graphing Approach, 2nd edition text. We have moved on to Larson's 4th edition and some sections have changed but I have left them where they are since many people on the Internet find these useful resources. The notes were updated in the Fall 2003 semester to use Cascading Style Sheets and validate as XHTML 1.0 strict web pages. If your browser doesn't support CSS, certain pages (especially those with matrices) will not display properly.

Note: A nice book on basic algebra operations.
• Differential Equations - Wikibooks, collection of open-content textbooks
This book aims to lead the reader through the topic of differential equations, a vital area of modern mathematics and science. It is hoped that this book will provide information about the whole area of differential equations, but for the moment it will concentrate on the simpler equations.

• The Music of the Primes: Searching to Solve the Greatest Mystery in Mathematics - Marcus du Sautoy
The quest to bring advanced math to the masses continues with this engaging but quixotic treatise. The mystery in question is the Riemann Hypothesis, named for the hypochondriac German mathematician Bernard Reimann (1826-66), which ties together imaginary numbers, sine waves and prime numbers in a way that the world's greatest mathematicians have spent 144 years trying to prove. Oxford mathematician and BBC commentator du Sautoy does his best to explain the problem, but stumbles over the fact that the Riemann Hypothesis and its corollaries are just too hard for non-tenured readers to understand. He falls back on the staples of math popularizations by shifting the discussion to easier math concepts.

• Beginning Topology (Brooks/Cole Series in Advanced Mathematics) by Sue Goodman
With a nice balance of mathematical precision and accessibility, this text provides a broad introduction to the field of topology. Author Sue Goodman piques student curiosity and interest without losing necessary rigor so that they can appreciate the beauty and fun of mathematics. The text demonstrates that mathematics is an active and ever-changing field with many problems still unsolved, and students will see how the various areas of mathematics ? algebra, combinatorics, geometry, calculus, and differential equations ? interact with topology. Students learn some of the major ideas and results in the field, do explorations and fairly elementary proofs, and become aware of some recent questions.

• Fermat's Last Theorem by Simon Singh
Over three hundred and fifty years were to pass before a mild-mannered Englishman finally cracked the mystery in 1995. Fermat by then was far more than a theorem. Whole lives had been devoted to the quest for a solution. There was Sophie Germain, who had to take on the identity of a man to conduct research in a field forbidden to females. The dashing Evariste Galois scribbled down the results of his research deep into the night before sauntering out to die in a duel. The Japanese genius Yutaka Taniyama killed himself in despair, while the German industrialist Paul Wolfskehl claimed Fermat had saved him from suicide.

• A Beautiful Mind's John Nash is less complex than the real one. - By Chris Suellentrop - Slate Magazine
Here's what's true in Ron Howard's movie A Beautiful Mind—or, at least, here's what corresponds to Sylvia Nasar's biography of the same name: The mathematician John Forbes Nash Jr. attended graduate school at Princeton, where he was arrogant, childish, and brilliant. His doctoral thesis on the so-called "Nash equilibrium" revolutionized economics. Over time, he began to suffer delusions. He was hospitalized for paranoid schizophrenia, administered insulin shock therapy, and released...
