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

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 Thanks in advance!
