Mathematical (or math) search is a challenging problem as math expressions are highly symbolic and structured. The vast majority of math search systems that adopt conventional text retrieval techniques are ineffective in searching math expressions. In this paper, we propose a lattice-based approach for math search. The proposed approach is based on Formal Concept Analysis (FCA), which is a powerful data analysis technique. In the proposed approach, math expressions are first converted into the… CONTINUE READING

#### Key Quantitative Results

- The proposed lattice-based math search approach is benchmarked against a conventional best match retrieval technique and results show it to be almost 10% better in terms of F1 for the top 30 retrieved results.
