Mathematics Research Guide

There are a number of important handbooks and manuals dealing with specific areas or functions in mathematics. Handbooks are excellent sources to use for an overview of a topic, to begin a literature search, and to find discussions about schools of thought, theoretical approaches, and landmark research studies. They provide a more in-depth and comprehensive treatment than encyclopedias or dictionaries on a specific topic in the field.
