[The Mathematical Atlas] [Search][Subject Index][MathMap][Tour][Help!]
[MathMap Icon]


The index pages at this site are organized according to the Mathematics Subject Classification (MSC) scheme. (This is the scheme developed by the American Mathematical Society and Zentralblatt für Mathematik. Here's the original.) Begin with a major heading from the right column below.

Alternative hierarchies to sort through the mathematical landscape are provided in the left column below. If you are more comfortable with one of them, select it to begin; you will eventually be directed to a blue index page in the MSC hierarchy which matches your area of interest. See also the alternative navigation tools at the top of this page.

Broad subdivisions of Mathematics

Core branches of mathematics:

Applied and related areas:

Other organization schemes:

Areas not corresponding to MSC headings:
(No index pages yet; sorry. Planned but barely usable at this point is a listing of such other mathematics disciplines.)

  • Pre-calculus
  • Calculus
  • Vector analysis
  • Discrete mathematics
  • Organized by audience:
    • Finance
    • Actuarial science
    • Mathematical physics
    • Engineering mathematics
    • Mathematics for lay audiences
  • [Other suggestions welcome]

Future areas of the MSC
These areas will be added in 2000.

Top-level subject areas in the MSC

    [NOTE: A revision  of the MSC for use starting in 2000 has been
    issued; this has not yet been incorporated into the index above.
    The new MSC may be seen at http://www.ams.org/mathweb/msc2000.html]
