For Starters

  • Mathematics : The Largest Known Primes
    This site contains the following sections: Introduction (What are primes? Who cares?); The "Top Ten" Record Primes; The Complete List of the Largest Known Primes; Other Sources of Prime Information; Notation and Definitions; and Euclid's Proof of the Infinitude of Primes.
  • History of Mathematics Archives
    The archive many useful resources, including biographies of more than 1300 mathematicians, articles on the development of mathematical ideas and famous curves, Mathematician of the Day, birthplace maps, and much more. There is a search engine.
  • MathSearch
    This Web site searchs over 200,000 English-language documents on mathematics and statistics servers across the Web. The majority of documents are concerned with research-level and university mathematics.
  • Statistics Related Internet Sources
    This Web site houses Dartmouth's collection of annotated statistics Internet sites. Areas include mailing lists, data, government resources, polls and surveys, professional societies and much more.
  • Statistics - WWW Virtual Library
    A huge site with links to mailing lists, newsgroups, software vendors, societies, academic departments on six continents and much more.
  • Math in Daily Life
    This site shows how math helps us in our daily lives. It demonstrates math concepts such as probability, compounding, growth, geometry, and relationships in situations such as gambling, savings and investing, population growth, home decorating, and cooking. Links to other Web sites of related math interests.
  • World of Mathematics
    Also known as MathWorld, this site is a "comprehensive, and interactive mathematics encyclopedia intended for students, educators, math enthusiasts, and researchers." The subject index includes algebra, applied mathematics, calculus and analysis, discrete mathematics, the foundations and history of mathematics, geometry, number theory, probability and statistics, recreational mathematics, and topology. In addition, there is a complete alphabetical index and a good search engine. Developed in parallel with the CRC Concise Encyclopedia of Mathematics, in print and on CD-ROM.

  • Math Software and Tools

    • GAMS : Guide to Available Mathematical Software
      The Guide to Available Mathematical Software project of the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) studies techniques to provide scientists and engineers with improved access to reusable computer software which is available to them for use in mathematical modeling and statistical analysis. One of the products of this work is an on-line cross-index of available mathematical software. This system also operates as a virtual software repository.
    • Math Works Library ftp software
    • National HPCC Software Exchange
      The NHSE is a distributed collection of software, documents, data, and information of interest to the high performance and parallel computing community.
    • Yahoo:Mathematics:Software
      It's Yahoo! so expect quite a few links and categories for further investigation. There is a section for Statistical Software.
  • Probability

    • Probability Tutorials
      Offering definations, theorems, and solutions, these 20 tutorials are meant to be a complete online course on measure theory, lebesgue integration and probability. There is also a link to chat with others using the tutorials.
    • Probability Web
      The Probability Web is a collection of pages created by Phil Pollett and maintained by Bob Dodrow to serve people with interests in probability theory and its applications. Information is presented under the following headings: Probability links, Abstracts, Listservers, Newsgroups, People, Jobs, Journals, Software, Books, Booksellers, Conferences, Publishers and Miscellaneous. There is also a rudimentary search engine.
  • Statistical Software and Tools

    • Statistical Reference Datasets
      The purpose of this project is to improve the accuracy of statistical software by providing reference datasets with certified computational results that enable the objective evaluation of statistical software. This project was developed by the Statistical Engineering Division and the Mathematical and Computational Sciences Division within the Information Technology Laboratory of the National Institute of Standards and Technology.
    • Interactive Statistical Calculation Pages
      The Interactive Statistical Pages project represents an ongoing effort to develop and disseminate statistical analysis software in the form of web pages. Utilizing html forms, CGI and Perl scripts, Java, JavaScript and other browser-based technologies, each web page contains within it (or invokes) all the programming needed to perform a particular computation or analysis.
