Mathematics on the Web

Selected Very Useful Resources

  • Electronic repositories
    • JSTOR: electronic copies of complete runs of several major U.S. and British publications (AMS and Royal Soc. journals, Annals of Math., etc.).
    • The arXiv of electronic preprints in mathematics and physics.
  • LaTeX advice. On-line advice at CTAN (Comprehensive TeX Archive Network); in particular A (Not So) Short Introduction to LaTeX2e and a very compact, printable symbol list excerpted from the preceding (not readable with acroread; try ghostview).
    We also present to you a large, comprehensive symbols list (111 pages in PDF), with advice on forming new symbols (prepared by Scott Pakin).

Further Useful Resources



Pages for undergraduates

For example:



Bibliographical sources

  • Reviewing and citation indexes.
  • Journal home pages. 
    • Binghamton University online journal access: a partial list of journals accessible to us, with links, is maintained by the library.
    • The most extensive lists of math journals, from the AMS.
    • The Penn State lists of math journals.
    • Recent contents pages of many math and cs journals at le Bibliothèque Mathématique et Informatique de l'Université de Bordeaux. These are photographed and might not be very legible.
  • Preprint servers. 
  • Publishers (including selected publishers with major search engines). 
  • Lists from the AMS of, among others, printed and electronic journals that have sites on the Internet.
  • The World Wide Web Virtual Library: Publishers, an all-subject listing.
  • A MathSciNet search can give you a list of mathematical articles from a specific journal. One search method: Click on a field-name box (e.g., “Author”) to change the field name to “Journal”. Then enter the journal name or abbreviation (recommended: use wild-card asterisks * as much as possible). This should give you a list of the articles from the journal that are indexed in Mathematical Reviews, from newest to oldest. Another method: Find an article from the journal and use that form of the title in your search.


Search by topic

  • The Math Archives of the University of Tennessee at Knoxville.
  • MathSearch by Jim Richardson (at the University of Sydney): a database of English-language Web pages in mathematics and statistics, searchable by keywords.
  • The Yahoo math page in the Yahoo index.
  • A broad collection of searchers from the CSC in Finland.

Much of this information was collected by Matt Brin. I (Tom Zaslavsky) stole more from the Math Archives of the University of Tennessee at Knoxville (UTK) and some from the invaluable links list at Penn State.
