Question:
Please recommend me some good books on Differential Equations and Linear Algebra, or anything beneficial to study Mathematics. I am going to be sophomore in college. And my major is chemistry. But I am interested in math. I have done with Calculus (Excluded geometry). I am trying to study Differential Equations and Linear Algebra. And I heard Number theory and group theory are good. I should like to have advice from you. Donghwan Rho from Seoul,KOREA.


Replies:
There are many good books on differential equation and linear algebra but two of my personal favorites are *Elementary Differential Equations and Boundary Value Problems* by Boyce and DiPrima and *Elementary Matrix Algebra* by Franz Hohn. Both are good, strong intermediate level texts. for a start with group theory a book by Hiram Paley *First Course in Abstract Algebra* is very readable. I have no favorites for number theory.
