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

    I don't really think such a thing is possible, but you can try:
    Abramowitz and Stegun, 10th edition

    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.
