Concise encyclopedia of mathematics by Eric W. Weisstein

By Eric W. Weisstein

Upon e-book, the 1st variation of the CRC Concise Encyclopedia of arithmetic received overwhelming accolades for its unprecedented scope, clarity, and application. It quickly took its position one of the most sensible promoting books within the heritage of Chapman & Hall/CRC, and its recognition maintains unabated.

Yet additionally unabated has been the commitment of writer Eric Weisstein to gathering, cataloging, and referencing mathematical evidence, formulation, and definitions. He has now up to date lots of the unique entries and multiplied the Encyclopedia to incorporate one thousand extra pages of illustrated entries.

The accessibility of the Encyclopedia in addition to its large assurance and least expensive fee make it appealing to the widest attainable variety of readers and definitely a needs to for libraries, from the secondary to the pro and examine degrees. For mathematical definitions, formulation, figures, tabulations, and references, this is often easily the main extraordinary compendium available.
