CRC Concise Encyclopedia of Mathematics is a bestselling book by American author Eric W. Weisstein.
The book is presented in a dictionary format. The book is divided into headwords. The book also provides relevant diagrams and illustrations.
The book became the subject of a lawsuit between CRC Press and Eric W. Weisstein. The CRC Press claimed Weisstein's website MathWorld violated the copyright on the CRC Concise Encyclopedia of Mathematics. During the dispute, a court order shut down MathWorld for over a year starting October 23, 2000. According to Eric Weisstein's personal site, he restarted MathWorld on November 6, 2001. Wolfram Research, Stephen Wolfram, and Eric Weisstein settled with the CRC Press for an undisclosed financial award and several benefits. Among these benefits are the legal rights to reproduce MathWorld in book format again.
