The Concise Oxford Dictionary of. Literary Terms Mathematics . Oxford Paperback Dictionary, offers a basic but sufficient indication of the essential features. Authoritative and reliable, this A-Z guide provides jargon-free definitions for even the most technical mathematical terms. With over 3, entries ranging from. The Concise Oxford Dictionary of Mathematics provides jargon-free definitions for over 3, of even the most technical mathematical terms. This dictionary.

Authoritative and reliable, this A—Z reference work provides jargon-free definitions for even the most technical mathematical terms. With entries ranging from Achilles paradox to zero matrix , it covers all commonly encountered terms and concepts from pure and applied mathematics and statistics, for example, linear algebra, optimisation, nonlinear equations, and differential equations. In addition, there are entries on major mathematicians and on topics of more general interest, such as fractals, game theory, and chaos. Almost new entries have been added to this edition, including terms such as arrow paradox , nested set , and symbolic logic. Useful appendices complement the A—Z dictionary and include lists of Greek letters, formulae, and tables of inequalities, moments of inertia, Roman numerals, a geometry summary, trigonometric values of special angles, probability distributions, and many more. James Nicholson, author Christopher Clapham wrote the first and second editions of this dictionary. James Nicholson has a mathematics degree from Cambridge, and taught at Harrow School for twelve years before becoming Head of Mathematics at Belfast Royal Academy in He is the author of two A-level Statistics texts, two GCSE Mathematics revision guides, and a contributing author for a number of other mathematics textbooks.

A natural number can be used to express the size of a finite set; more precisely, a cardinal number is a measure for the size of a set, which is even suitable for infinite sets.

This concept of "size" relies on maps between sets, such that two sets have the same size , exactly if there exists a bijection between them. Natural numbers are also used as linguistic ordinal numbers : "first", "second", "third", and so forth.

This way they can be assigned to the elements of a totally ordered finite set, and also to the elements of any well-ordered countably infinite set. This assignment can be generalized to general well-orderings with a cardinality beyond countability, to yield the ordinal numbers.

An ordinal number may also be used to describe the notion of "size" for a well-ordered set, in a sense different from cardinality: if there is an order isomorphism more than a bijection!

For finite well-ordered sets, there is a one-to-one correspondence between ordinal and cardinal numbers; therefore they can both be expressed by the same natural number, the number of elements of the set.

This dictionary 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. Concise Oxford Dictionary of Mathematics is completed with 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. It is written with the undergraduate mathematics student in mind, which is to say: Here's an example of an entry.

Fully capitalized terms are entries themselves. This guide book gives concisely the information necessary to evaluate most problems which occur in concrete applications.

In this editions emphasis was laid on those fields of mathematics that became more important for the formulation and modeling of technical and natural processes, namely Numerical Mathematics, Probability Theory and Second Edition by the Mathematical Society of Japan. We shall explain how these two versions are related to each other and how the present edition differs from the
