Rutgers Mathematics Master Textbook List

Textbook list, Fall 2003

Information on textbooks for all Undergraduate Mathematics courses at the New Brunswick and Piscataway campuses of Rutgers are collected here. This information is cumulative since the Fall 2000 semester. Course numbers are followed by brackets containing the codes F for Fall Semester courses, S for Spring Semester courses, or both. Changes in textbook for the current semester are indicated at the end of the item (including upgrades to new editions). When available, a link to a suitable page on the publisher's web site has been included. Information about particular books can be found in a few steps from this link. In a few cases, there is a fixed page devoted to the particular text which is indicated by a link marked (text). The title, author or ISBN number can also be used to find information from on-line bookstores such as Amazon, Barnes & Noble, or The Mathematics Online Bookshelf (MOB) (in alphabetic order), or from sites like Direct Textbook or Chambal that collect information from many stores.

There are also pages from the Fall 2000, Spring 2001, Fall 2001, Spring 2002, Fall 2002, and Spring 2003 semesters.
