The dictionary has been growing since 1985 and now contains
over 13000 definitions totalling nearly five megabytes of
text. Entries are cross-referenced to each other and to
related resources elsewhere on the net.
Where LaTeX commands for certain non-ASCII symbols are
mentioned, they are described in their own entries. "\" is
also used to represent the Greek lower-case lambda used in
lambda-calculus. Cross-references to other entries look like
this. Note that not all cross-references actually lead
anywhere yet, but if you find one that leads to something
inappropriate, please let the maintainer know. Dates after
entries indicate when that entry was last updated. They do
not imply that it was up-to-date at that time.
