### Re: Resources for learning the Math and Science behind compu

some University CS departments publish their slides and curriculum online for the public to view. If I were looking to brush up on basic computing theory, I would try to find some slides for a computer architecture class, or a discrete mathematics class.

This is the text at my Uni covering these topics and I found it to be quite good:

Thanks. I picked "Introduction to Algorithms" by Thomas Cormen as our exercises were based on this book. I finished that class and i'm just moving on.

But any other suggestion would be useful too.

I was checking out the MIT page that has some exams and lecture notes.

Maths for CS by Eric Lehman, you could find it in the MIT opencourseware, but here is a straightforward link. I'm no expert, but this book seems pretty exhaustive, written in a simple style, and is html indexed.

I would open my eyes to all theplatforms for massive online courses that are arising lately: coursera, udacity, khan academy, EdX, and lots more. This are the best resources imo. Planned courses with explanations, quizzes, projects, self-assesment...

I don't think they are for the PhD, but I think you can find solid knowledge
