FSU Libraries publishes open access textbook by mathematics professor

Tuesday, July 2, 2019

The Florida State University Libraries has published an open access mathematics textbook in collaboration with Giray Ökten, associate chair for Graduate Studies and professor of mathematics at Florida State University.

The textbook, “First Semester in Numerical Analysis with Julia,” was published thanks to an Alternative Textbook Grant Ökten received from FSU Libraries in 2018 to help create an open textbook based on his lectures.

Ökten’s textbook presents the theory, methods and implementation of algorithms using the Julia programming language. Through the grant, the textbook is available for free download through the Open Textbook Library and is licensed under the Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial-ShareAlike license, allowing other instructors to adapt and remix content from the book in their own work.
