Description
"Mathematics Illustrated Dictionary" is a comprehensive, easy-to-use, one-volume guide to math facts and figures, terms and processes, concepts and systems. Brief biographies (along with portraits) explain the work of famous mathematicians, along with summaries of historical developments from the early Greeks to quantum and superstring theories. Illustrations and examples clarify and expand definitions. There are clear descriptions of mathematical applications in computer science, physics and astronomy, along with commonly used symbols, systems of weights and measures, graphs and references, such as the periodic table. As a basic resource for students, teachers, and the mathematically well-informed, this invaluable dictionary should be part of every reference shelf.
