I'm looking for a complete dictionary about Mathematics, after searching a lot i found only this one http://www.amazon.com/Encyclopedic-Dictionary-Mathematics-Second-VOLUMES/dp/0262090260/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1323066833&sr=8-1 .

I'm looking for a book that can give me a big picture, well written with a clever idea in mind from the author, a big plus can be the presence of railroad diagram or diagram with logic connections between the elements.

I am wondering whether this "complete" book exists or not. –  Jack Dec 5 '11 at 7:15

I have always been fond of Wolfram Mathworld, though I have seen it critiqued for not being accurate in some articles. It is also available in print.

It's available in print, but 1. it's a bit outdated; and 2. CRC and Weisstein have a sorry history regarding the production of the book (he basically got shafted). Search around for the gory details... –  J. M. Dec 5 '11 at 7:00
