is down! (Help)

A few months ago, I came across this note that opened up a whole new world of free books. It was truly a blessing. But for the past month or so,'s and its mirrors' servers have stopped responding. I have checked out these mirrors and they're not working:


  2. This site actually redirected me to another website that's called Libgen project. I tried downloading a book from there, but it was "damaged beyond repair", according to Adobe reader. Plus this site had a lot of ads.

  3. This is also the source of material for the mirror, which appears to be running, but alas, it only contains the links.


  5. This site also has a lot of ads and I had problems when I tried to download a book.

If any of you have discovered a functioning mirror, please let me know.

This discussion board is a place to discuss our Daily Challenges and the math and science related to those challenges. Explanations are more than just a solution — they should explain the steps and thinking strategies that you used to obtain the solution. Comments should further the discussion of math and science.

When posting on Brilliant:

  • Use the emojis to react to an explanation, whether you're congratulating a job well done , or just really confused .
  • Ask specific questions about the challenge or the steps in somebody's explanation. Well-posed questions can add a lot to the discussion, but posting "I don't understand!" doesn't help anyone.
  • Try to contribute something new to the discussion, whether it is an extension, generalization or other idea related to the challenge.
  • Stay on topic — we're all here to learn more about math and science, not to hear about your favorite get-rich-quick scheme or current world events.

Ya, they are in some financial crisis, apparently. Libgen has been in quite a fix: Elsevier sued libgen over some copyright issue; plus the guy who started libgen also died recently (rip).

Unfortunately, the mirror is not functional. It got the data from, which is down right now, so you can't download books from there. Sorry to say I don't know any other mirrors. But who knows, they may restart libgen soon enough!

Plus the one is now asking explicitly for donations to open a new mirror. I think that someone took over their website, tweaked the code a bit to include ads and now, they're making money. I mean, why would you ask for donations to open a new mirror if you already have a newer, better one already?

But that one looked infected. I tried to download a,book but it said that it was damaged and hence not readable.

Edit: This is definitely infected. It took me to the App Store to download some app even though I didn't even touch the screen. Don't go there!
