Intuitive and Formal Representations: The Case of Matrices

  title={Intuitive and Formal Representations: The Case of Matrices},
  author={Martin Pollet and Volker Sorge and Manfred Kerber},
A major obstacle for bridging the gap between textbook mathematics and formalising it on a computer is the problem how to adequately capture the intuition inherent in the mathematical notation when formalising mathematical concepts. While logic is an excellent tool to represent certain mathematical concepts it often fails to retain all the information implicitly given in the representation of some mathematical objects. In this paper we concern ourselves with matrices, whose representation can… CONTINUE READING
