This book is based on an honors Calculus course given in the 1960s. The book contains more material than was normally covered in any one year. It can be used (with omissions) for a year's course in Advanced Calculus, or as a text for a 3-semester introduction to analysis. There are exercises spread throughout the book.

Linear Algebra, Theory and Applications was written and submitted by Dr. Kenneth Kuttler of Brigham Young University. Dr. Kuttler wrote this textbook for use by his students at BYU. According to the preface of the text: “This is a book on linear algebra and matrix theory. While it is self-contained, it will work best for those who have already had some exposure to linear algebra. It is also assumed that the reader has had calculus. Some optional topics require more analysis than this, however.” A solutions manual to the textbook is included.
Computer Networking: Principles, Protocols, and Practice was written and submitted to the Open Textbook Challenge by Dr. Olivier Bonaventure of the Université catholique de Louvain (UCL) in Louvainla-Neuve, Belgium. He also serves as the Education Director of ACM SIGCOMM. Computer Networking has already been used by several universities around the world, including UCL.
Mathematical Analysis, Volume I was written by Dr. Elias Zakon of the University of Windsor and submitted to the Open Textbook Challenge by Dr. Bradley Lucier of Purdue University. According to the preface, "One of [the] main objectives is updating the undergraduate analysis as a rigorous postcalculus course... [without losing] contacts with classical texts still widely in use."
Elementary Linear Algebra was written and submitted to the Open Textbook Challenge by Dr. Kenneth Kuttler of Brigham Young University. Dr. Kuttler wrote this textbook for use by his students at BYU. According to the introduction of Elementary Linear Algebra, “this is intended to be a first course in linear algebra for students who are sophomores or juniors who have had a course in one variable calculus and a reasonable background in college algebra.” A solutions manual for the textbook is included.
Introduction to Groups, Invariants & Particles is a book for Seniors and advanced Juniors who are majoring in the Physical Sciences or Mathematics. The book places the subject matter in its historical context with discussions of Galois groups, algebraic invariants, Lie groups and differential equations, presented at a level that is not the standard fare for students majoring in the Physical Sciences. A sound mathematical basis is thereby provided for the study of special unitary groups and their applications to Particle Physics. ISBN: 9781616100421
From the University of Florida Department of Mathematics, this is the third volume in a three volume presentation of calculus from a concepts perspective. The emphasis is on learning the concepts behind the theories, not the rote completion of problems. WebAssign online ancillaries are available. Most questions from this textbook are available in WebAssign. The online questions are identical to the textbook questions except for minor wording changes necessary for Web use. Whenever possible, variables, numbers, or words have been randomized so that each student receives a unique version of the question. This list is updated nightly. Downloads are freely available (no cost).
