Although there has been considerable interest in recent years in the development of specialized mathematical digital libraries that can index and search for mathematical documents, little is yet known about how people will search for mathematical concepts. To begin to gain some insight into that question, this paper examines the nature of queries for mathematical concepts that were created by users of a search engine. A total of 392,586 queries that contained at least one distinctive… Expand
