Finding required information in a library of mathematics can be problematic, just as in any other library. However, so far, there are no strong search methods based on the semantics of formal mathematics. This paper describes a new approach based on latent semantic indexing (LSI). Using this, the semantics of terms need not be explicitly defined but is… CONTINUE READING
