    Hi,
    I'm a mathematician with very limited knowledge in practical electronics.
    But I know how to do calculations with Maxwell's equations ;-)

    Now, to get started in builing my own small electronical gadgets and to be
    able to analyze cirquit-diagrams what books do you recommend?

    I'd get one of the dozens of undergrad electronics textbooks for the dry
    but necessary theory, and the 'Art of Electronics' for a taste of the
    more interesting stuff. The AoR is abit dated, so you may also want
    another book that teachers microcontrollers/embedded systems.

    cheers,

    Al

    The art of electronics by horowitz and hill is a good book - well written
    and covers a lot of stuff, with a bias towards applications in scientific
    research.

    "Practical Electronics for Inventors" is pretty good with more emphasis on
    application than theory although he gives some.

    Not sure of your email address and i am sure that isn't your current.
    i have a set of zipped files in PDF format that may help you greatly in
    getting started in the theory of basic components ect.
    i think since that your a math head it will fall into your realm of
    reality!. :)
    let me know in E-Mail,. you can see my E-mail address and should
    understand what you need to do in getting to me a reply so that
    i can forward you these sets of files.

    I'd start with the site above. It has everything.
    I did electronics in college and this site has everything my collection of
    half ass written books has!

    You can try my free electronics tutorials at
    http://www.iguanalabs.com/maintut.htm
    They do not go into the details of electrons and holes and such but the
    focus is on giving you the information you need to design and build
    circuits.

    Graham Knott is a professional educator. Good site for basics:
