Linear Algebra by Leif Mejlbro
Leif has published many of his books, sixty-six to be precise, freely on Bookboon.com . You can see what he offers freely at http://bookboon.com/en/search?q=author%3A%22Leif%20Mejlbro%22 . In his Linear Algebra book-series he offers great details and excellent write up. He has aimed this series to be a practical guide for students in Physics and the technical sciences. For that reason the emphasis has been laid on worked examples, while the mathematical theory is only briefly sketched without proofs. There are total three books on Linear Algebra, all hosted at Bookboon.com all of which can be downloaded freely.
- Linear algebra c-1 – Linear equations, matrices and determinants
- Linear algebra c-2 – Geometrical Vectors, Vector Spaces and Linear Maps
- Linear algebra c-3 – The Eigenvalue Problem and Euclideam* Vector Space
Four other books on Linear Algebra by Kenneth Kuttler are also considerable.
Group theory for Maths, Physics and Chemistry by Arjeh Cohen, Rosane Ushirobira, Jan Draisma
Symmetry plays an important role in chemistry and physics, both at the macroscopic and the microscopic level. Group theory is an abstract setting capturing the symmetry in a very efficient manner, which helps to make computations more efficient. We focus on abstract group theory, deal with representations of groups by means of permutations and by means of matrices, and deal with some applications in chemistry and physics.
