4434A WikiTextBook for Introductory Mechanics
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=440854
This is a free, online textbook offered in conjunction with MIT's OpenCourseWare. "This e-Book is a first step toward a shift in the role of the printed textbook from authoritative serial repository to modular, customizable, linkable, interactive hub. The ideal modern textbook should provide a clear overview of the domain, short summaries of key content, links to more detailed online source material, embedded self-assessment, and a vehicle for instant student feedback. This open-source e-Book for introductory mechanics uses ideas from modeling physics to encourage strategic, concept-based problem solving and employs a wiki format to enable multiple parallel organizations of the material, links to resources and student comments.״ This e-Book is a first step toward a shift in the role of the printed textbook from authoritative serial repository to modular, customizable, linkable, interactive hub.

Online PublicationCHAOS: CLASSICAL AND QUANTUM
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=352845
That is what we will focus on in ChaosBook. The book is a self-containedgraduate textbook on classical and quantum chaos. Your professor does not knowthis material, so you are on your own. We will teach you how to evaluate adeterminant, take a logarithmstuff like that. Ideally, this should take 100 pagesor so. Well, we failso far we have not found a way to traverse this material inless than a semester, or 200-300 page subset of this text. Nothing to be done.An Introduction to Quantum Game Theory
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=558714
This free, online textbook "gives a self-contained introduction to quantum game theory, and is primarily oriented to economists with little or no acquaintance with quantum mechanics. It assumes little more than a basic knowledge of vector algebra. Quantum mechanical notation and results are introduced as needed. It is also shown that some fundamental problems of quantum mechanics can be formulated as games.״Fields

This is the "first free comprehensive textbook on quantum (and classical) field theory. The approach is pragmatic, rather than traditional or artistic. It covers many recent topics at an introductory yet nontrivial level, such as supersymmetry, general relativity, supergravity, and strings. It introduces many topics not appearing in other textbooks, including: 1/N expansion (color ordering) in QCD, including relation to random worldsheets spacecone (spinor helicity), including explicit calculations of 4- and 5-point S-matrices in Yang-Mills many useful gauges, such as Gervais-Neveu, Nielsen-Kallosh, unitary lightcone, and even string gauges in gravity finite N=1 supersymmetric theories "Motion Mountain: The Adventure of Physics vol. IV - QUANTUM THEORY: THE SMALLEST CHANGE
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=437834
This is the fourth volume in a 6-volume series of Motion Mountain. One can read the volumes online. Chapter titles are: Minimum action - quantum theory for poets; Light - the strange consequences of the quantum of action; Motion of matter - beyond classical physics; Colours and other interactions between light and matter; Permutation of particles - Are particles like gloves?; Rotations and statistics - visualising spin; and Superpositions and probabilities - quantum theory without ideology.
