Ver todas las copias de esta edición ISBN.

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 fashionWhat is truly exceptional is that this encyclopedia is the product of a single dedicated and talented authorThis 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."

Reseña del editor:

Upon publication, the first edition of the CRC Concise Encyclopedia of Mathematics received overwhelming accolades for its unparalleled scope, readability, and utility. It soon took its place among the top selling books in the history of Chapman & Hall/CRC, and its popularity continues unabated.

Yet also unabated has been the dedication of author Eric Weisstein to collecting, cataloging, and referencing mathematical facts, formulas, and definitions. He has now updated most of the original entries and expanded the Encyclopedia to include 1000 additional pages of illustrated entries.

The accessibility of the Encyclopedia along with its broad coverage and economical price make it attractive to the widest possible range of readers and certainly a must for libraries, from the secondary to the professional and research levels. For mathematical definitions, formulas, figures, tabulations, and references, this is simply the most impressive compendium available.
