I have found many excellent books on algebra, calculus, geometry and others, but it is al applied, and no mathematical proofs whatsoever. And I really want these proofs, because I want to fully grasp and understand what I'm doing (which sounds obvious). > Can you help me find the courses or books I need? I'm of course prepared to pay the price for books needed to increase my knowledge and skills.
I haven't looked in a recently published one, but the Schaum's Outline series covered a wide range of subjects at various levels with proofs and fully solved problems.
Knuth's Art of Computer Programming covers mathematics relevant to... um... programming, and he proves things. (I happen to think that the books are overrated: MIX is utterly absurd and his flow charts are awful.)
