♥ A First Course in Linear Algebra by Robert Beezer [html]
A First Course in Linear Algebra is an introductory textbook designed for university sophomores and juniors. Typically such a student will have taken calculus, but this is not a prerequisite. The book begins with systems of linear equations, then covers matrix algebra, before taking up finite-dimensional vector spaces in full generality. The final chapter covers matrix representations of linear transformations, through diagonalization, change of basis and Jordan canonical form.

♣ Earth's Dynamic System by W. Hamblin, Eric Christiansen [html]
Earth is exquisitely beautiful; a planet, washed in water and surrounded by a thin atmosphere with swirling white clouds. This planet - our home - is a system of moving gas, liquid, and solids with numerous interconnected and interdependent components. We have mapped its volcanoes, studied the structure and composition of the continents and the deep ocean floor, gaining insight into the planet's origin and history. We also have peered into Earth's depths and discovered that its interior is churning slowly and how such movements affect the very surface of the planet. We have extended our exploration into the vastness of space and found that every object in the solar system contains part of a record of planetary evolution that helps us understand Earth. With these new perspectives on our planet, we can develop an all-encompassing view of how Earth operates as a constantly changing dynamic system.

♥ Fundamentals of Die Casting Design by Genick Bar-Meir [html]
This book is divided into two parts. The first discusses the basic science required by a die-casting engineer; the second is dedicated to die-casting-specific science. The die-casting specific is divided into several chapters. Each chapter is divided into three sections: section 1 describes the ``commonly'' believed models; section 2 discusses why this model is wrong or unreasonable; and section 3 shows the correct, or better, way to do the calculations. I have made great efforts to show what existed before science ``came'' to die casting. I have done this to show the errors in previous models which make them invalid, and to ``prove'' the validity of science. I hope that, in the second edition, none of this will be needed since science will be accepted and will have gained validity in the die casting community. Please read about my battle to get the information out and how the establishment react to it.

♥ Software Innovation by Jeremy Rose [pdf]
Innovation is the forgotten key to modern systems development - the element that defines the enterprising engineer, the thriving software firm and the cutting edge software application. Traditional forms of technical education pay little attention to creativity - often encouraging overly rationalistic ways of thinking which stifle the ability to innovate. Professional software developers are often drowned in commercial drudgery and overwhelmed by work pressure and deadlines. The topic that will both ensure success in the market and revitalize their work lives is never addressed. This book sets out the new field of software innovation. It organizes the existing scientific research into eight simple heuristics - guiding principles for organizing a system developer's work-life so that it focuses on innovation.
