There do not exist any comprehensive, up-to-date encyclopedias in Mathematics. Thus, EACM is without competition and will be a landmark in Mathematics publishing. The EACM team of editors consists of scientists of the highest level, all are leaders in their fields of research. Besides mathematicians, all types of scientists and engineers will use EACM as a standard working tool.
EACM is a comprehensive reference work covering the vast field of applied and computational mathematics. Applied mathematics itself accounts for at least 60 per cent of mathematics, and the emphasis on computation reflects the current and constantly growing importance of computational methods in all areas of applications. EACM emphasizes the strong links of applied mathematics with major areas of science, such as physics, chemistry, biology, and computer science, as well as specific fields like atmospheric ocean science. In addition, the mathematical input to modern engineering and technology form another core component of EACM.
