Synopsis:

This third edition of a bestseller is now presented as a three-volume set, making it much more accessible and easier to use when searching for information. Maintaining the format that made its predecessors so popular, this edition has been extensively expanded, revised, and updated. It now contains nearly 12,000 entries. Each article provides definitions, formulas, illustrations, web links, bibliographic information, and facts from mathematics, the sciences, and engineering. Written by a single author, the encyclopedia is written in an informal style, making it accessible to anyone who has an interest in mathematics. The three-volume set is beautifully bound with much improved typesetting and format.

An expert Mathematica user since the 1990s, Weisstein continues to work closely with the main development teams at Wolfram Research, providing input and advice for future features of Mathematica. He is a sought-after speaker on mathematics communication, scientific computing, and knowledge management on the internet. He has participated in a number of important standards initiatives and led Wolfram Research?s contribution on a National Science Digital Library project. Weisstein is also a primary math and science consultant for the CBS television drama NUMB3RS.
