  1. All the contents you mentioned in post is too good and can be very useful. I will keep it in mind, thanks for sharing the information

  2. Not that I am seeing this kind of list for the first time. In fact, I myself have prepared an (unpublished) list of such articles and (published) list of mathematical resources/websites.

    But it is heartening to have stumbled upon on your page. I actually found out that many of the link listed above were unknown to me. I have bookmarked your page hoping that you would keep this list updated.
