This is the first CD-ROM edition of the Concise Encyclopedia of Mathematics CD-ROM by Eric W. Weisstein. It contains the entire contents of the hardcover edition of the CRC Concise Encyclopedia of Mathematics with corrections. Advantages of the CD-ROM over the book include portability, live hyperlinks and interactive 3-D graphics and animations.
If you enjoy the CD-ROM version of this encyclopedia, you may also be interested in the hardcover edition, published by CRC Press, and the web version of the encyclopedia. Unfortunately, this first CD-ROM edition does not contain a search utility, although keyword searching should be available in future editions. Check the CD-ROM edition's home page for the latest information.
This CD-ROM is written in ISO 9660 format using plain HTML with Java, and so is readable by all computers using a Java-capable web browser. However, it is best viewed using a computer with a fast CD-ROM drive and enough memory to allow embedded Java applets to run properly. In this CD-ROM, links to pages on the CD-ROM itself are shown in blue (or your browser's default color), while links to external pages requiring an Internet connection are shown in red.
