Abstract
Mathematical dictionaries rarely explain where any of the terms came from, and then only briefly ... This is the first book that combines a mathematical dictionary and an etymological dictionary and as such, is recommended for any library covering the field of mathematics. The Words of Mathematics explains the origins of over 1500 mathematical terms used in English. While other dictionaries of mathematics define technical terms, this book concentrates on where those terms came from and what their literal meanings are. The words included here range from simple to advanced.
