The Concise Oxford Dictionary of Mathematics provides jargon-free definitions for over 3,000 of even the most technical mathematical terms. It covers all commonly encountered terms and concepts from pure and applied mathematics and statistics, such as linear algebra, optimization, nonlinear equations, and differential equations. In addition, there are entries on major mathematicians and topics of more general interest, such as fractals, game theory, and chaos.
You'll find graphs, diagrams, and charts to render definitions as comprehensible as possible, while entries are clear and accessible and offer an ideal introduction to the subject. Also included are lists of Nobel Prize winners and Fields' medalists, Greek letters, formulae, and tables of inequalities, moments of inertia, Roman numerals, and more. Fully featured with curriculum and degree requirements, it provides indispensable information for students and teachers of mathematics, and for anyone encountering mathematics in the workplace.
