Index using "Encyclopedic Dictionary" System


Here are the top-level areas of mathematics and related fields classified according to the system used in the "Encyclopedic Dictionary of Mathematics", translated from the Japanese; Shôkichi Iyanaga and Yukiyoshi Kawada, eds. (MIT press, 1977, 1750pp, ISBN 0-262-09016-3). This is a fine encyclopedia, the second edition (1993) having 450 articles arranged alphabetically in three volumes, together with a fourth volume with appendices, tables, and name- and subject-indices. The articles are usually divided into labelled sub-themes, too. On the other hand, they are gathered into a systematic classification in an index table, reproduced below.

This classification systems is appropriate for indexing both new work and standard results together. However, it is not used as frequently among mathematicians as the Mathematics Subject Classification (MSC) scheme, which is the basis for the organization of materials at this site.

If someone would like to supply the headings of the named paragraphs within this classification system, they can be added to the list below. For the time being we offer no links to the materials at this site through this system.

The twenty-one groupings in this system are

  1. Logic and Foundations
  2. Sets, General Topology, and Categories
  3. Algebra
  4. Group Theory
  5. Number Theory
  6. Euclidean and Projective Geometry
  7. Differential Geometry
  8. Algebraic Geometry
  9. Topology
  10. Analysis
  11. Complex Analysis
  12. Functional Analysis
  13. Differential, Integral, and Functional Equations
  14. Special Functions
  15. Numerical Analysis
  16. Computer Science and Combinatorics
  17. Probability Theory
  18. Statistics
  19. Mathematical Programming and Operations Research
  20. Mechanics and Theoretical Physics
  21. History of Mathematics
