By its very nature, this work depends in great measure on the marvelous Internet links technology, in order to make instantly accessible, articles on any given scientific (and also mathematical and sometimes philosophical) matter or discovery. If readers want to know more about the particulars and technical details referred to in passing, then the many hundreds of links provided in this work will be quite convenient for that purpose. My own greatest interest lies in the areas of history of science and philosophy of science: and those are my own emphases in the book.
