    Unless it's said otherwise, most math handbooks do not include proofs for all the formulas which they contain. If they did, you wouldn't have a math handbook, but a math encyclopedia.

    There is one that is historically very significant among mathematicians, especially number theorists..............
    "A synopsis of elementary results in pure mathematics" - G.S. Carr
    The great Indian self-taught mathematician Srinivasa Ramanujan has said to have began self studying this book when he was about 15-16 years old. And that was the only mathematical education he ever had.........
    Though of course later he learned a lot from Hardy and Littlewood.......

    What happened to the multiquote?

    Listing the handbook is not a joke. These handbooks usually show tables of integration and derivative formulas. Other mathematical formulas, too.

    Though you should know that this is a really ridiculous question. And I mean a reaaaaaaalllly ridiculous question. Because not only there does not exist a book containing all the theorems in the fields you mentioned, there does not even exist a book that would contain all the theorems in a small sub-field of those fields. Mathematics is huge, very huge, even more huge than physics, forget theorems and formulas, you'll find that there does not even exist a precise list on the internet of all the fields and sub-fields of mathematics, and you'd probably be crazy to attempt to write one, because it would take a very long time and in that time ten more things will pop up that you along with most of the world know nothing about....................

    A justifiable question if who asks is a high school student or a beginning college/university student. At that stage, students may still believe that their teacher knows everything, because the teacher is the person who has all the answers (at least for all the instruction being delivered.... students do not yet know their teachers's limits).

    Precisely why I even bothered to reply, I was just attempting to show him/her what really maths is all about. I'm not sure I did a very good job, but to the OP I would recommend reading something like "Letters to a young Mathematician" - Ian Stewart if you want an idea of a career in math.

    OKay. And you have a justifiable reason for this.

    both of you right.
    my question is really stupid as you said before.
    steamking replied and told me that.i will not find a book that contain all the formulas.......
    friends the handbook i asked for,not for me it is for my cousin he loves books so much. he studying physics in college(He is studying General physics).
    so he told me to find a book contain math formulas.
