A good starting point is Mathematics on the Web: the AMS guide.
Selected Very Useful Resources
- American Mathematical Society, the AMS homepage.
- Mathematical Association of America, the MAA Online homepage.
Reviews and abstracts of mathematical publications:
- MathSciNet, the Web version of Mathematical Reviews, produced by American Mathematical Society (Accessible for Canisius Students and Faculty.)
- Zentralblatt MATH Database, the on-line version of Zentralblatt für Mathematik. It is produced by the Berlin editorial office of FIZ Karlsruhe, in cooperation with European Academies and Mathematical Institutes.
- The 2000 Mathematics Subject Classification, effective now for all publications.
A list with extensive links to home pages:
- Math links page compiled by Penn State: worldwide coverage of math departments (USA and other countries A-F, G-M, N-Z); institutes, journals, societies, some publishers, specialized subject pages(classified by area), software, etc.
Many Useful Resources
Pages for students:
- The MAA Students Page: various information from the Mathematical Association of America.
- SIAM's Students Page from the Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics.
- Printable Math Activities: Many links to math educational websites with math activities and tips. Some are more geared toward kids, but some could be useful for college students as well.
Lists with extensive links to home pages.
- Especially recommended: the Penn State list: worldwide coverage of math departments (geographically well organized), institutes, journals, societies, some publishers, specialized subject pages (classified by area), software, etc.
- The Math Archives of the University of Tennessee at Knoxville. Particular virtues: extensive references for teaching materials (all levels), and descriptive annotations. Search for resources on the math topic of your choice, or look up departments (incorporating lists for many countires in the world), institutes, societies, and more.
- The Mathematics WWW Virtual Library from Florida State: Links to Math departments (geographical), Resources and lists for specialized fields, high school servers, software, links to membership lists for U.S. and Canada, etc., etc.
- Mathematical Resources on the Web from the University of Florida. Lots of references to departments and organizations (alphabetical; math and related), bulletin boards, and much more.
- The Math-Net Links at ZIB-Berlin. Organized links to all sorts of mathematical resources: general resources, publications, software, etc. See also ... Full list of contents.The "Platonic Realms" site of B. Sidney Smith: a curiosity.
- A list of mathematical articles from a specific journal can be obtained by a MathSciNet search. 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.
