RE: Your favorite math reference book(s)?
A recommendable German title comprehensively covering all kinds of school math (and a bit beyond) is "Kleine Enzyklopädie Mathematik" edited by W. Gellert, H. Küstner, M. Hellwich and H. Kästner. Originally published by the former EastGerman Bibliographisches Institut, Leipzig, 1968, it was also licensed for publication by Western publishers like Pfalz Verlag and Verlag Harri Deutsch. Newer German editions exist (some under the title "Meyers kleine Enzyklopädie Mathematik"), but I haven't used them myself so I cannot comment on them. However, I have been told they are heavily reworked.
Another work I can recommend is Vladimir Smirnov's "Lehrgang der höheren Mathematik" in seven volumes, an expanded translation of the Russian original "Курс высшей математики" published by the former EastGerman Deutscher Verlag der Wissenschaften, Berlin as volumes 16 of their series "Hochschulbücher für Mathematik", and licensed by Verlag Harri Deutsch for Western distribution. Last revised in 1994/1995, it is still available from EuropaLehrmittel today (ISBN 9783808555729). Apparently, an English translation exists under the title "A Course in Higher Mathematics". Yet another "classic" is Gregor Fichtenholz's "Differential und Integralrechnung" (ISBN 3817114184) in three volumes (as volumes 6163 of the "Hochschulbücher für Mathematik" series). There never was an English translation, unfortunately. Greetings, Matthias  "Programs are poems for computers."
