List of free mathematics books

Possibly of interest: free mathematics books online. Many seem to be either quite recent (since, say, around 2000) or more than a few decades old, although I haven't systematically checked this statement; this isn't surprising, as the very old books tend to be in the public domain and the very new books tend to have been produced in a period when computers were more universal than they were in the past.

There are a couple hundred books listed here, which is not anywhere near the number of free mathematics books available (legally) online. Various other lists exist, with varying degrees of overlap. Sometimes I flirt with the idea of attempting a more complete list but I realize it would become out of date quite quickly.

Hm, interesting, I typically have used James Milne's website (jmilne.org) for his textbooks there. There are some notes on the posted site on complex differential geometry that cover the Hodge theorem that I needed to learn. Thanks for posting it.

You rock! Feel free to dump links to any other lists that you have.
