This dictionary is the first of its kind covering both computer science and mathematics. It contains 9,594 entries with more than 2,500 cross-references. Selection of the terms was based either on their significance or on their frequency of use according to authoritative encyclopedia, dictionaries or textbooks. The modern developments and contemporary changes in terminology have been included, as well as recently established terms.

Computer science terminology covers the theory of algorithms, programming languages, program development methods, data and file structures, operating systems, computer architecture, hardware, communications, information technology, system and application software, microprogramming, etc. The mathematical terminology embraces all the major branches from elementary to advanced subjects: arithmetic, algebra, geometry, set theory, discrete mathematics, logic, linear algebra, matrix algebra, calculus, differential equations, numerical methods, mathematical programming, modern algebra, computer algebra, category theory, applied mathematics, theory of automata and formal languages, theory of games, Boolean algebra, theory of graphs and so on.

The dictionary consists of two parts. The first part - Basic Table - lists the English terms in alphabetical order, numbered consecutively. Each English term is followed by its German, French and Russian equivalents. English synonyms are also given in their own alphabetical order as cross-references to the main entries. In the second part - the Indexes - the German, French and Russian terms are listed in three separate alphabetical indexes. The reference number with each term marks the number of the equivalent English term in the basic table. The list of the Mathematical Symbols and the Bibliography complete the volume. 1995
