lost in mathematics

Is there such a thing as a complete dependence chart for all fields of
mathematics?

I was in the library today, looking for something on convex sets - which
I know nothing about but are needed to understand what I really want to
read, which is a book I have on optimizing mathematical procedures in
programming. I found a few books on the subject but they assumed rather
a wide knowledge-base that I simply do not have. I don't even know what
half the stuff they mentioned IS. Fields, rings, Hilbert spaces - I'm
completely lost ...and that's just on stuff thay call basic. I dread to
think what the advanced stuff looks like. Anyway, I need to know where
to begin reading and preferably a chart that shows how all is connected
and what I need to know to understand each set of ideas. Any help?

Please respond by email as well as to the group, but not to this account
but to lnemi2@ismennt.is. Thanks in advance!
