Can we have a Maths Symbols Dictionary or Maths Symbols Quick Reference Guide similar to Oxford or Cambridge Dictionary available for English Thesaurus ? The Maths Symbols Dictionary can have different Sections viz 1. Mathematical Constants Example : Pi with symbol > its function etc 2. Mathematical Operators Examples : +,  , *, / , % , >, >=, <, <=, = , ==, != etc 3.Mathematical Symbols specific to Maths Applications Examples Union Operator > Sets Intersection Operator > Sets Set Symbol > { } Matrix > [ ] Determinant >   Scalar > . (Dot) Vector > * cross etc Do you feel after proper compiling, the Quick Reference Guide/Dictionary can be published in the Market and also available as a ebook on the Internet ? This could be a useful quick reference guide. isn't it ? Awaiting your inputs, views and suggestions, Thanks & Regards, Prashant S Akerkar

Possibly marketable. I think its appeal would be limited by the existence of alternate resources: http://math.stackexchange.com/ http://detexify.kirelabs.org/classify.html http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_ma ... al_symbols http://www.ctan.org/texarchive/info/sy ... rehensive/ http://mathoverflow.net/

Thank you. But what about having a printed hard copy of the same (i.e Publishing in Publishing Houses) as mentioned above with enhancements similar to Oxford or Cambridge Dictionary for English Thesaurus ? There will/could be dedicated web site to Oxford or Cambridge Dictionary, Ms Word a word processor application part of MS Office suite has a Thesaurus Feature. Authors of the Maths Symbols Dictionary or Quick Reference Guide will be Mathematician Professors. What i mean is Electronic media (Wikipedia, Google, Mathematica) and Printed Hard Copies (Books, Journals, Magazines) are two different media. It could be a very useful reference Guide for all levels i.e Beginners , Intermediate , Experts in Mathematics. Thanks & Regards, Prashant S Akerkar

Thank you. We can also add the following at the end of the Mathematics Symbols Dictionary or Quick Reference Guide. 1. Bibliography  References to Electronic media Web Links for the symbols, constants, operators. 2. Appendix  Definitions of Mathematics Subjects. The Definitions would be short one or two line answers. For example : Probability, Surd, Matrix, Scalar, Vector, Logarithms, Sets, Limits, Index, Factorial, Statistics etc Finally we have to quote a price in US$, GBP, Euros etc currencies before publishing in the market. I Feel the Maths Symbols Dictionary or Quick Reference Guide will be appreciated by the Public similar to Oxford or Cambridge Dictionary for English Thesaurus. A Survey or Poll can also help in this Regard. Awaiting your views, inputs and suggestions, Thanks & Regards, Prashant S Akerkar
