MathWorld

This is an online encyclopedia. Covers algebra, applied mathematics, history and terminology, etc.

Encyclopedia of Mathematics "The Encyclopedia of Mathematics wiki is an open access resource designed specifically for the mathematics community. The original articles are from the online Encyclopaedia of Mathematics, published by Kluwer Academic Publishers in 2002. With more than 8,000 entries, illuminating nearly 50,000 notions in mathematics, the Encyclopaedia of Mathematics was the most up-to-date graduate-level reference work in the field of mathematics."

The Mathematical Atlas Provides short articles on mathematics.

The International Dictionary of Applied Mathematics.Ref. QA 5 .I5

"Defines the terms and describes the methods in the applications of mathematics to thirty-one fields of physical science and engineering" (preface). Both practical and general terms and definitions are utilized. The foreign language indices list the French, German, Russian, and Spanish equivalent of English words.

Dictionary of Logical Terms and Symbols. Ref. QA 9 .G698

Presents "compactly, concisely, and side by side a variety of alternative notational systems currently used by logicians, computer scientists, and engineers" (preface). Also includes a glossary and a bibliography.

Here are some online dictionaries:

Yahoo's Mathematics

Utilizes a directory format along with "most popular" sites.

Internet Public Library's Mathematics

No directory arrangement--sites are arranged alphabetically.

Mathematics WWW Virtual Library

Looks are deceiving as only 15 categories are listed in a directory format but each of these sites opens to a rich collection of Internet

sites.

A Catalog of Mathematical Resources on the WWW and Internet

Mathematics on the Web

This site is nice because all the topics are alphabetically arranged, e.g., algebra, chaos, etc.

Mathematics Links
