Move of The Encyclopedia of Mathematics from Springer Verlag to EMS Press
 The Encyclopedia of Mathematics (EoM) has moved from Springer Verlag to EMS Press, the Berlinbased mathematics publisher, owned by the European Mathematical Society.
 Therefore, the software of this server was updated  see the Special:Version for details.
 In case you encounter any problems with the new software just drop a note on the discussion page of this page.
 Further Information will be posted here soon, in particular concerning the licensing agreement.
Please stay tuned with EoM!
The Encyclopedia of Mathematics wiki is an open access resource designed specifically for the mathematics community. The original articles are from the online Encyclopaedia of Mathematics, published by Kluwer Academic Publishers in 2002. With more than 8,000 entries, illuminating nearly 50,000 notions in mathematics, the Encyclopaedia of Mathematics was the most uptodate graduatelevel reference work in the field of mathematics.
Springer, in cooperation with the European Mathematical Society, has made the content of this Encyclopedia freely open to the public. It is hoped that the mathematics community will find it useful and will be motivated to update those topics that fall within their own expertise or add new topics enabling the wiki to become yet again the most comprehensive and uptodate online mathematics reference work.
The original articles from the Encyclopaedia of Mathematics remain copyrighted to Springer but any new articles added and any changes made to existing articles within encyclopediaofmath.org will come under the Creative Commons Attribution ShareAlike License. An editorial board, under the management of the European Mathematical Society, monitors any changes to articles and has full scientific authority over alterations and deletions.
This wiki is a MediaWiki that uses the MathJax extension, making it possible to insert mathematical equations in $\rm \TeX$ and $\rm \LaTeX$. For instructions on how this can be achieved, please see the Help page.
