 ERIC W. WEISSTEIN'S WORLD OF MATHEMATICS (MATHWORLD) - Wolfram

                http://mathworld.wolfram.com

  MathWorld is back! Eric Weisstein reports:

    "Although it may have seemed as if nothing were happening, 
    behind the scenes Wolfram Research, their lawyers, and I 
    were working the whole time to bring MathWorld back. Now, 
    after a huge amount of effort on all of our parts, the case 
    has been settled and MathWorld has been returned to the 
    Web." 

  For details on the shutdown and return of the site see:
