Dictionary figures and references

Tips: This is the full list of references that appear in the Dictionary. Use this page to locate the missing full citations in the Dictionary articles.

Most of the figures do not appear in their entirely on the article. All of the figures for Sheriff’s Dictionary have captions. We will retain the captions when adding the figures to the Dictionary entries. It is possible that these figures will have the same issues as the dictionary entries: improper math and no references. I encourage you to address these issues in the figures as you see them.

Dictionary equations

Most of the equations in the Dictionary are poorly formatted. This is due to the initial conversion process from book to wiki. Use CodeCogs, a visual website that allows you to create the math code you need, to help with fixing or preparing equations.

Visit the category page, unformatted equations for a list of all articles that need fixed.

Tip: This article provides numerous examples of the proper math code.
