The new Concise Science Dictionary reflects the growing vocabulary of science. Written in a clear, explanatory style, it contains more than 7,000 entries drawn from physics, chemistry, biology, earth sciences, and astronomy, as well as terms that are commonly encountered in mathematics and computer science. The entries provide both straightforward definitions and invaluable background information on a wide range of scientific words and subjects. Line-drawings are also included whenever the meaning of a word is best conveyed by means of a diagram, and charts and tables of essential scientific information are integrated throughout. The dictionary's usefulness is further enhanced by an extensive cross-referencing system which enables the reader to place each entry in a broader scientific context. The Concise Science Dictionary will be of great value to non-scientists, students, and scientists seeking an accessible reference work on words encountered in all the scientific disciplines.
