In this paper we describe the MBase system, a web-based, distributed mathematical knowledge base. This system is a mathematical service in MathWeb that ooers a universal repository of formalized mathematics where the formal representation allows semantics-based retrieval of distributed mathematical facts.
Real-world applications of automated theorem proving require modern software environments that enable modularisation, networked inter-operability, robust-ness, and scalability. These requirements are met by the Agent-Oriented Programming paradigm of Distributed Artiicial Intelligence. We argue that a reasonable framework for automated theorem proving in the… (More)
