    Good Site for Advance Math Concepts

    I often come across advanced concepts on this site I want to learn more about (explanations or proofs of theories, detailed examples of principles I don't understand, etc.). Does anyone know of a good site I can go to?


    I've gone to wikipedia on many occasions, but it's really not that helpful unless I have a decent understanding of the concept I'm looking up. Their examples are bad and the technical jargon is sometimes impossible to comprehend. Wikipedia is done more as a quick reference then as a detailed resource.

    I think that Wikipedia is excellent. To remind you some of it is written for experts in a specific area in math, thus if you do not understand it, it is natural.

    You can use PlanetMath
    And MathWorld

    Those, are the other two I like to use.

    However, if you want to learn something. Go Here.
    And type "MIT Math"

    The search will show you a complete (or almost) complete list of lectures from MIT University on Differencial Equations and Linear Algebra.

    You can also go here.
    Click Math.
    Click Graduate.
    Then Click "Mathematical Methods for Engineers I and II".
    Those are taped lectures.

    I think it is a great idea to view them over the summer. It is just 50 minutes. If you watch a lecture once a day you finish the course in one month.

    I love professor Mattuck (the guy that teaches differencial equations). I think he is so funny. I already watched like 5 videos.

    I e-mailed him and told him thank you, and whether he is going to release another one. He said no

    Re:

    Mattuck is a pure genius. I think that those were freshmen he was teaching.
