Encyclopedia of Mathematical Physics

The Encyclopedia of Mathematical Physics provides a complete resource for researchers,students and lecturers with an interest in mathematical physics. It enables readers to access basic information on topics peripheral to their own areas, to provide a repository of the core information in the area that can be used to refresh the researcher's own memory banks, and aid teachers in directing students to entries relevant to their course-work. The Encyclopedia does contain information that has been distilled, organised and presented as a complete reference tool to the user and a landmark to the body of knowledge that has accumulated in this domain. It also is a stimulus for new researchers working in mathematical physics or in areas using the methods originating from work in mathematical physics by providing them with focused high quality background information.Editorial Board: Jean-Pierre Fran oise, Universit Pierre et Marie Curie, Paris, FranceGregory L. Naber, Drexel University, Philadelphia, PA, USATsou Sheung Tsun, University of Oxford, UKAlso available online via ScienceDirect (2006) - featuring extensive browsing, searching, and internal cross-referencing between articles in the work, plus dynamic linking to journal articles and abstract databases, making navigation flexible and easy.
