## Dr. Eleftherios Gkioulekas -- faculty web page## Dr. David Santos memorial siteProf. David Anthony Santos was a professor at the Mathematics Department of the Community College of Philadelphia and a prolific author of very high quality mathematics textbooks, infused with a deep understanding of mathematics and delightful eccentricities, that were made freely available. Unfortunately, he passed away in 2011, and, so far as I know, it seems that his institution did not provide a permanent archive to his life's work. To honor Prof. Santos memory, I will host his textbooks on my personal faculty page. I urge colleagues to mirror this website, so that Prof. Santos work can outlive the dumbed down and overpriced mainstream gobledygook that is being served to our students, and to write their own free textbooks or online lecture notes. The works below are available under the following license. You are encouraged to copy and redistribute these works. I originally mirrored Dr. Santos's notes from Dr. Joyner's archive. Later, both this page and Dr. Joyner's page have been mirrored by Dr. Schremmer, a colleague and collaborator of Dr. Santos. If you use this material on your own teaching, do not take our websites for granted. Please mirror and setup your own website. Some of Dr. Santos books have been published posthumously by his family at a reasonable cost. Links to Amazon where you can purchase bound copies of the books are given below. Note that this does not invalidate the original open source license. - D.A. Santos: Andragogic Propaedeutic Mathematics || [source] || [amazon]
- D.A. Santos: Difference Calculus and Generating Functions || [source]
- D.A. Santos: Discrete Mathematics Notes || [source] || [eps] || [amazon]
- D.A. Santos: Ossifrage and Algebra || [source] || [amazon]
- D.A. Santos: Junior Problem Seminar || [source]
- D.A. Santos: Linear Algebra Notes || [source]
- D.A. Santos: Number Theory for Mathematical Contests || [source] || [amazon]
- D.A. Santos: Precalculus, An Honours Course || [source] || [amazon]
- D.A. Santos: Calculus, once again || [source] || [amazon]
- D.A. Santos: Multivariable and Vector Calculus || [source]
- D.A. Santos: The Elements of Infinitesimal Calculus || [source] || [amazon]
Also archived is his Ph.D. thesis, advised by Prof. Hugh L. Montgomery - D.A. Santos (1993): Sets of monotonicity for the Riemann Zeta Function, Ph.D. thesis (advisor: Hugh L. Montgomery)
From my own archives, I was also able to salvage the following additional textbooks: - D.A. Santos: Differential Calculus || [source]
- D.A. Santos: Elementary Probability || [source]
Dr. Santos's institution has maintained a very interesting collection of mathematis competition problems over many years. I am personally amazed by Dr. Santos's mastery of LaTeX and devotion in putting together this impressive work. Working with his files was very much like being a sorcerer's apprentice. |
