This encyclopedia contains more than 5,000 integer sequences, over half of which have never before been catalogued. Because the sequences are presented in the most natural form, and arranged for easy reference, this book is easier to use than the author's earlier classic A Handbook of Integer Sequences.

Audience: Those professionals and researchers in all areas of applied and theoretical science and engineering who need to identify and work with integer sequences, including amateurs and recreational mathematics enthusiasts, and scienceand mathematics libraries. Of interest to those working in: number theory, combinatronics, graph theory, discrete mathematics, computer science, algebra, geometry, communications, information theory, physics, chemistry, statistics, botany, and zoology.
