The Encyclopedia of Mathematical Physics provides a complete resource for researchers,
students and lecturers with an interest in mathematical physics. It enables readers to access basic information on topics peripheral to their own areas, to provide a repository of the core information in the area that can be used to refresh the researcher's own memory banks, and aid teachers in directing students to entries relevant to their course-work. The Encyclopedia does contain information that has been distilled, organised and presented as a complete reference tool to the user and a landmark to the body of knowledge that has accumulated in this domain. It also is a stimulus for new researchers working in mathematical physics or in areas using the methods originated from work in mathematical physics by providing them with focused high quality background information.

* First comprehensive interdisciplinary coverage
* Mathematical Physics explained to stimulate new developments and foster new applications of its methods to other fields
* Written by an international group of experts
* Contains several undergraduate-level introductory articles to facilitate acquisition of new expertise
* Thematic index and extensive cross-referencing to provide easy access and quick search functionality
* Also available online with active linking.
