The following topics and texts were assembled from courses given recently at UNH. Other texts used in Junior and Senior level classes also are appropriate. Be sure to look at one lower level book and one upper level book for each topic. Because texts are so similar, there is no need to look at more than one text at each level; choose whichever you prefer or have access to. But don't forget to look at lower level texts as they have some problems and topics that are not in higher level texts.
