Online Reference Books
Encyclopedia of Algorithms
Ming-Yang Kao, editor. Published by Springer, c. 2008. From the foreward: each "encyclopedia entry is an in-depth mini-survey of an algorithmic problem and is written by an expert researcher. The entries for an algorithmic area are compiled by an area editor to survey the representative results in that area and can form the core materials of a course in the area."
Also available in print: FHG Library Ref 518.103 E56

Welcome to the WCU Library Services guide to research resources in Mathematics - from WCU Library and beyond. This Guide includes:
- OneSearch - search box for mathematics resources
- PILOT library catalog
- Online reference books
- Databases listed by name
Once you know which database is best for your research topic, direct searches allow you to take advantage of the database's unique characteristics. Some databases are very specific to mathematics (e.g. MathSciNet) while others include articles on related and additional topics.
- Online streaming videos to support learning in mathematics
- User feedback box - let me know what you think!
See the tab above for > Journals & Websites related to Mathematics, and lists of New Books (& videos) at FHG Library
Please contact me (info at right -->) if you have suggestions for other additions to this guide. As a resource for a community of learners, this guide will benefit from the combined expertise of all!
