RE: Your favorite math reference book(s)?
As a West German Mech Eng / Chem Eng student in the 80s I used a lot of very well written textbooks (math, chemistry, thermodynamics, mechanics etc.) from East Germany. They were very cheap too. I was always wondering, why professors e.g. in West Germany rarely came up with something comparable.

Later I gained the impression that writing textbooks or handbooks was not considered in West Germany as "valuable" as the publishing of research papers. If those professors would write books, it would rather for graduate students than undergrads.
