4434Differential Equations
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=556384
״Here are my online notes for my differential equations course that I teach here at Lamar University. Despite the fact that these are my “class notes”, they should be accessible to anyone wanting to learn how to solve differential equations or needing a refresher on differential equations.I’ve tried to make these notes as self contained as possible and so all the information needed to read through them is either from a Calculus or Algebra class or contained in other sections of the notes.״ Data Structures
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=440381
This is a free, online textbook, so its content is continually being updated and refined. According to the authors, "This book is about the creation and analysis of efficient data structures. This book covers: the primitive node structure; asymptotic notation for mathematically discussing performance characteristics; built-in arrays; list structures built from either nodes or arrays; iterators as an abstract model of enumerating the items in a sequence; stacks and queues for computing with last-in/first-out and first-in/first-out orderings; binary and general tree structures for searching or representing hierarchical relationships; min and max heaps for representing ordering based on priorities; graph structures for representing more general relationships between data elements; hash tables for the efficient retrieval of strings and other objects; and finally trade-offs between the structures, and strategies for picking the most appropriate ones.Difference Equations to Differential Equations: An Introduction to Calculus

This is a free, online textbook offered by Bookboon.com. "This book presents finite difference methods for solving partial differential equations (PDEs) and also general concepts like stability, boundary conditions etc. Material is in order of increasing complexity (from elliptic PDEs to hyperbolic systems) with related theory included in appendices. Each chapter has written and computer exercises with web links to worked solutions, programs, A/V presentations and case studies. Emphasis is on the practical and students are encouraged to do numerical experiments. This book is intended for undergraduates who know Calculus and introductory programming.״Linear Complementarity, Linear and Nonlinear Programming
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=436885
״This book provides an in-depth and clear treatment of all the important practical, technical, computational, geometric, and mathematical aspects of the Linear Complementarity Problem, Quadratic Programming, and their various applications. It discusses clearly the various algorithms for solving the LCP, presents their efficient implementation for the computer, and discusses their computational complexity. It presents the practical applications of these algorithms and extensions of these algorithms to solve general nonlinear programming problems. Finally, it surveys new methods for solving linear programs, such as Khachiyan's and Karmarkar's.״״You can download each chapter in postscript format by clicking the link following each chapter in the table of contents.

Accretive Operators and Nonlinear Cauchy Problems.ISBN 0-8218-3193-3SURV/49.ENotes on Diffy Qs: Differential Equations for Engineers
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=445763
According to the author,״This free online book (e-book in webspeak) should be usable as a stand-alone textbook or as a companion to Edwards and Penney, Differential Equations and Boundary Value Problems. I developed and used these notes to teach Math 286/285 at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. Sample Dirichlet problem solution The aim is to provide a low cost, redistributable, not overly long, high quality textbook that students will actually keep rather than selling back after the semester is over. Even if the students throw it out, they can always look it up on the net again. You are free to have a local bookstore or copy store make and sell copies for your students. See below about the license. Another reason is to allow modification and customization for a specific purpose if necessary. If you do modify these notes, make sure to mark them prominently as such to avoid confusion. This aspect is also important for longevity of the book. The book can be updated and modified even if I happen to drop off the face of the earth. You do not have to depend on any publisher being interested as with traditional textbooks. While the textbook may be used by itself, it is can also be used in conjunction with the IODE software. IODE is a free software package for experimenting with basic ODEs developed at University of Illinois specifically for teaching this course. IODE works with both Matlab (proprietary) and Octave (free). The IODE website has several extra projects for the students to work through as homework. The graphs in the book are done using the Genius software. Temperatures of object with ambient temperature oscillating Table of contents: Introduction 1. First order ODEs 2. Higher order linear ODEs 3. Systems of ODEs 4. Fourier series and PDEs 5. Eigenvalue problems 6. The Laplace transform״
