Links to encyclopaedias
Wikipedia links are given whenever there is a Wikipedia entry on that subject, regardless of the quality or content of the Wikipedia entry. The idea is that Groupprops should act as a portal to all the notable places where the term is referenced, and Wikipedia entries are typically notable.
To put a Wikipedia link, use Template:wp. You need to write:
where Nameofarticle is the part that comes after the http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ in the article name.
Planetmath and Mathworld
They work on a similar pattern as Wikipedia.
