    What does the "ff" mean in the index?

    I am browsing the index in Dummit & Foote and I notice that a lot of the page numbers have ff. after them. What does this mean?

    For instance,

    "Gaussian integers, 229ff., 271, 278, 289ff., 377"

    A reference such as 229ff. usually means: Page 229 and following pages. (The topic is mentioned over several pages, not just one.)
