Encyclopedia of Mathematics Rebirth

Ten years ago, Kluwer published an online version of the multi-volume Encyclopaedia of Mathematics (QA5 .M37213 1988, Math Reference) , which had been translated and updated from the original 1977 Russian version, Matematicheskaya entsiklopediya. After Springer bought Kluwer, this online version ceased being updated and was made freely available online.

Now, Springer and the European Mathematical Society are sponsoring the conversion of this respected work into a public wiki encyclopedia. An editorial board led by Ulf Rehmann (Univ. Bielefeld) will oversee the future development of this publicly available resource. They encourage mathematicians everywhere to contribute to the transformation of this important resource.

How Do I?: Find Dissertations

  • UW Theses and Dissertations – if not available in Dissertations Abstracts, search the UW Libraries Catalog:

See ourLibGuide page on finding books for more info.

Journal of Fluid Mechanics

UW Libraries recently purchased the JFM backfiles, v. 1-, 1956-.

Library Collection Shift Almost Complete

The two students who have been working on our collection have finished their book by book inventory. They have reshifted the main floor (A-QA272) and have almost finished reshifting our upper floor (QA273-Z). There is now lots of room for future growth.

Their last task will be reshifting the journals collection in Math Storage. There should be plenty of room down there too.

You may request journal vols. at any time through the catalog, by email, or in person. Should you ever want to go there, remember to get the call number first before you go. The journals there are now in Library of Congress call no. order. This helps us manage the collection better.

Welcome to the UW Libraries and Mathematics Research Library.  We are here to help you with your learning and research needs.

Math Research has a collection of books, ebooks, journals–both online (current vols. and backfiles)  and paper, and databases devoted to upper level pure and applied mathematics and statistics.  We’ve created 2 new subject guides to help you navigate the maze of university level materials:

Mathematics and Applied Mathematics

Also check our unit webpage for links to the UW Libraries Catalog, our hours, location, contact information, our weekly new books and journal listings, and a wealth of other handy links pertaining to mathematics and statistics research.

Note that all of our online resources can be used remotely by UW students, staff, and faculty.  Just look for this button: 

in the upper right corner of most UW Libraries’ pages, click and sign in with your UWNetID and password.  You will also want to read about our handy UW Libraries Proxy Bookmarklet that makes it even easier to sign into any UW Libraries licensed online resource.

Reserve materials for upper level (400+) math and stat classes are shelved on the counter-height shelving near the stairs on our main floor.  Reserve books may be checked out for 4 or 24 hours.

Our hours are Monday-Thursday, 9AM-6PM and Sunday, 1PM-5PM.

Open Access Week Activities

New Open Access Encyclopedia

StatProb.com—The Encyclopedia Sponsored by Statistics and
Probability Societies is now up on the web.  StatProb.com combines the advantages of traditional wikis (rapid and up-to-date publication, user-generated development, hyperlinking, and a saved history) with traditional publishing (quality assurance, review, credit to authors, and a structured information display).

For more online references in math and stat, check our subject guides’ Reference Resources page.

Historic IMU/ICM Proceedings Digitized

All content from past Proceedings of the International Congress of Mathematicians, 1893+ have been digitized and made freely available on the web.  Videos from past ICMs, a list of all invited ICM speakers since 1897, and digitized IMU/ICM books are also available there.
