Subject:   Free Text Books

Dear Colleagues -

This is the latest free text book on the Web that has come to my
attention. There are quite a few others. You owe it to your students
who usually spend well over $100 on a single course text to be aware
of appropriate free options when they are available from members of
the academic community who believe in sharing.

Allen Hatcher [.pdf, .ps]
Allen Hatcher is a professor of mathematics at Cornell University. On
his home page, he offers a link to download his book "Algebraic
Topology" in its entirety. Published in 2002, the book is over 500
pages in length and is free to anyone wanting a personal copy. In
addition to Algebraic Topology, there are three other books that are
work-in-progress. Despite being incomplete, they could be useful to
students in related classes. Several research papers written by
Professor Hatcher are also given on this site.
