Encyclopaedia of Mathematics

The Encyclopaedia of Mathematics is a large reference work in mathematics. It is available in book form and on CD-ROM, and can be browsed online free of charge at http://eom.springer.de/.

The 2002 version contains more than 8,000 entries covering most areas of mathematics at a graduate level, and the presentation is technical in nature. The encyclopedia is edited by Michiel Hazewinkel and was published by Kluwer Academic Publishers until 2003, when Kluwer became part of Springer. The CDROM contains animations and three-dimensional objects. [1]

The encyclopedia has been translated from the Soviet Matematicheskaya entsiklopediya (1977) originally edited by Ivan Matveevich Vinogradov and extended with comments and three supplements adding several thousand articles.
