Description: A collection of short articles introducing the subject areas of modern mathematics, describing a few of the milestone results and topics, and giving pointers to some of the key resources where further information is to be found. The material is arranged in a hierarchy of disciplines; you may take a tour (good for newcomers), click on a territory in the MathMap or in an annotated version; choose from a list of subject headings; or search for a topic by keywords. General headings are Foundations; (Abstract) Algebra and Number Theory; Geometry and Topology; and Mathematical Analysis, including Calculus and Real Analysis, Complex variable Analysis, Differential Equations, Functional Analysis, and Numerical Analysis and Optimization. Applied and related areas: Computer and Information Sciences; Probability and Statistics; Physical Sciences and Engineering; and History, Education, Other. There is also a "Gentle Introduction to the Mathematics Subject Classification Scheme."
