I study physics and i find math very interesting.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I'm using Michael Spivak's "Calculus" and i think it's really good book.

Spivak's book is great sample of book that i desire - it's for mathematicians, not for physicist, but you can understand it even if your not a mathematician.

And it have problems that demand more than just using some kind of pattern (atleast it seems so, i solved just few).

I'm looking for linear algebra book, abstract algebra and number theory book (for freshman).

If this is book without problems, then i need one with problems too - but problems that require more than just using a pattern.

And any other book that is as good as Spivak's Calculus.
