Mathematics Dictionary 5th Edition
ERROR FLAG ON GOOGLE BOOKS!!! Mathematics Dictionary 5th edition by James and James. Google Books lists Wrong authors below reader review section. The Mathematics
Dictionary on this page is authored by R.C. James, Glenn James, as were editions 1 through 4, as far as I know. The Google Books entry incorrectly lists authors as: P.L. Williams, R.C. James, S.M. Roberts, who do not even have degrees in mathematics. These three are not the authors of the Mathematics Dictionary. The real authors are R.C. James and Glenn James, and have been for years. Now to my review of James & James. I have found this reference very valuable over the years. More than just a dictionary of word meanings, James & James expands on the meanings of terms and concepts, and is perhaps closer to a mathematical encyclopedia. Detailed and professional treatments that are interesting enough to make good reading, not just a look up. The quality of the discussion is much better than what we see in other references, e.g. Wikipedia. I would recommend James & James to any serious student or working professional in the field of mathematics.
