Springer OpenAccess books that I ought to read

Dec. 29, 2015

[UPDATE 2015-12-31. The good times turned out to be short-lived. Springer has now turned off open access for these books.]

Springer has made the full text of many of its math and statistics books freely available. Here are some books that I should read. Now there is one less excuse not to.

Mathematical Economics


  • Halmos. Finite-Dimensional Vector Spaces. A very good way to get a first taste of abstract mathematics.

  • Zhang. Matrix Theory. Halmos is good for aesthetics, but deep in the trenches you need weird matrix decompositions. A concise collection of useful results.



Probability Theory


History of Statistics
