http://www.investopedia.com/articles/basics/03/031703.asp will provide at least one definition of capitilization groups. I think you will find different definitions for different purposes for different reasons. Probably the only consistency is that a mid cap will be smaller than a large cap and larger than a small cap. To further confuse the issue sometimes there are 3 groups and sometimes more.
Personally, I tend to think of mid caps as $500 million to $5 billion (only because I can remember those numbers) and anything larger is large cap and anything smaller small cap.
