    I'm reading Holomorphic Hilbert Modular Forms by Paul Garrett. It's pretty good but riddled with typos.

    If this counts, I'm going through some notes on Linear Algebra and teaching myself. I'm on linear transformations at the moment. I'm finding linear to be pretty fun.

    raed: As with anything, teaching yourself math takes patience and dedication. And it's always helpful to have someone around to bounce things off of.

    Chemboy: Linear algebra is a beautiful theory, largely because you can get pretty far using just elementary methods. If you have any questions during your studies, let us know!

    I'm reading through "Advanced calculus demystified" Bachman, D. It's kind of like "a Dummies guide" to multivariable calculus, so while it's not as rigourous as some courses it still includes an excellent introduction and overview of all the basic concepts, with practice problems too.

    After that I want to learn more about differential equations, and will probably get Bachman's book again, cause this one has been quite good.

    I also want to learn some linear algebra like Chemboy, and I'll probably get that book you recommended soon as my first paycheck comes through (New job...skint :? ).

    Shreve - Stochastic Calculus for Finance II

    Zelenyuk - Topologies on groups determined by sequences

    and a whole host of papers!
    As is often the case with technical subjects we are presented with an unfortunate choice: an explanation that is accurate but incomprehensible, or comprehensible but wrong.
