Eric W Weisstein(
)
4 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Weisstein's site features biographies and explanations of topics in mathematics, physics, astronomy, and chemistry. The information content is appropriate for advanced high school or undergraduate college course work. The Biography section can be searched by gender/minority status, branch of science, historical periods, nationality and prize winners. There are linked references and lists of referenced sources for each article. The subject area sections of the site are easily searched by divisions within the discipline. For example, under chemistry one can look for help under organic chemistry, then hydrocarbons. In that section are explanations of naming, structures, reactions, etc. Physics, math and astronomy sections are similarly broken down by divisions of the discipline and then smaller areas of study. Some areas of this site are still under construction. However, it is superior for help with advanced topics in these subject areas and is notable for listing references."Reviewed March 22, 2004 "Best Free Reference Web Sites 2004," RUSA Quarterly, Fall 2004.
