The first seven chapters of this concise text provide an exposition of the basic topics of solid analytic geometry and comprise the material for a one-semester course on the subject for undergraduate mathematics majors. The remaining two chapters offer additional material for longer courses or supplementary study. Chapters 1 and 2 contain a treatment of the equations of lines and planes. Subsequent chapters offer an exposition of classical elementary surface and curve theory, a treatment of spheres, and an examination of the classical descriptions of quadric surfaces in standard position. An exploration of the theory of matrices follows, with applications to the three-dimensional case of quadric surfaces. The text concludes with a survey of spherical coordinates and elements of projective geometry.

Upon publication, the first edition of the CRC Concise Encyclopedia of Mathematics received overwhelming accolades for its unparalleled scope, readability, and utility. It soon took its place among the top selling books in the history of Chapman & Hall/CRC, and its popularity continues unabated. Yet also unabated has been the dedication of author Eric Weisstein to collecting, cataloging, and referencing mathematical facts, formulas, and definitions. He has now updated most of the original entries and expanded the Encyclopedia to include 1000 additional pages of illustrated entries. The accessibility of the Encyclopedia along with its broad coverage and economical price make it attractive to the widest possible range of readers and certainly a must for libraries, from the secondary to the professional and research levels. For mathematical definitions, formulas, figures, tabulations, and references, this is simply the most impressive compendium available.
