From the preface to the new edition: The long awaited second edition of this encyclopedia is finished, and it is now more complete than ever. Heavily revised by the author over the past three years, it contains well over 3,000 pages. Weisstein has updated all of the original material, added approximately 3,600 new entries and many illustrations, and updated the bibliographies that follow each entry to include the most recent references. As yet another enhancement, this edition integrates the use of the Mathematica software into many of its entries, presenting the precise commands that allow you to implement the formulas presented, perform many different calculations, construct graphical displays of your results, and generate remarkable mathematical illustrations.
