Dave Rusin; The Mathematical Atlas  
A short article designed to provide an introduction to ordered sets. Ordered sets, or lattices, give a uniform structure to, for example, the set of subfields of a field. Various special types of lattices have particularly nice structure and have applications in group theory and algebraic topology, for example. History; applications and related fields and subfields; textbooks, reference works, and tutorials; software and tables; other web sites with this focus.
