Overview

The Encyclopedia of Integer Sequences contains more than 5000 integer sequences, arranged for easy reference, with more than half never before catalogued. In addition to having more than double the material of Sloane's A Handbook of Integer Sequences (Academic Press, 1973), this encyclopedia gives the name, mathematical description, and citations to the literature for each sequence. It includes essays on origins, uses, and connections, with interesting diagrams or illustrations. More than a table, this is an introduction to the field, showing readers how to identify and work with sequences. It includes an extensive bibliography of current and classic references. An index to all the sequences in the book is also available separately in Macintosh and IBM formats.
