I started my PhD study in Econometrics last month. Currently I am studying some compulsory course works (Probability theory and Statistical Inference), and also reviewing the literature in my field. I would also like to study some more mathematics, which I believe will make me more prepared for my formal research. Can anyone suggest some math (text)books ?

Thanks a lot.

Take a look at the math section at http://econphd.econwiki.com/books.htm. I would also add the two measure theory books from the econometrics section.


You may also check http://tinyurl.com/82eyplb and if you are willing to spend more http://www.springer.com/economics/econometrics/book/978-0-387-77316-2 will give you some programming experience in R (good for Statistics)
