Someone can recommend some good mathematics dictionary or handbook which is comprehensive, completeness and which states the mathematical notions clearly.
Thanks!

I don't really think such a thing is possible, but you can try:
Abramowitz and Stegun, 10th edition
and
The On-Line Encyclopedia of Integer Sequences
for starters.

Why not just use Mathworld, Wikipedia or other online resources instead? Can be much more comprehensive than any printed volume can ever be.
