Editorial Reviews


It seems to me that [Weisstein's] encyclopedia inaugurates a new era for two reasons: one, as the suthor says, this book lives and breathes hand-in-hand with the Internet. This book's ease of reference, despite a lack of index due to size limitation, and interactive features place it squarely and successfully in this new age. The second reason why the book is a first in the technology age is that CAS are used extensively by the author, and Mathematica codes are included in this new edition. SIAM Review, Vol. 46

Praise for the first edition:
This extraordinary volume beautifully captures many of the discoveries in mathematics in a readable and authoritative fashion…What is truly exceptional is that this encyclopedia is the product of a single dedicated and talented author…This book is an excellent resource for both teaching and research libraries…
-Journal of Mathematical Psychology

I cannot praise the work too highly: Its vast scope and readability make the encyclopedia a great success.
- Robert Dickau

Impressive...I found it very interesting and spent time reading about a variety of topics for which I had very little background or knowledge...A valuable source of information...
- W.E. Schiesser, Lehigh University

Users will actually look forward to picking it up… one of the more important tools that will help college students actually grasp important mathematical concepts, written in such a way as to invite students to return to it time and again to discover that they really can understand mathematics and apply its concepts to derive solutions to practical problems.
