Mathematical semantic markup in a wiki: The roles of symbols and notations is a 2008 conference paper written in English by Lange C. and published in CEUR Workshop Proceedings.

[edit] Abstract

We present semantic markup as a way to exploit the semantics of mathematics in a wiki. Semantic markup makes mathematical knowledge machine-processable and thus allows for a multitude of useful applications. But as it is hard to read and write for humans, an editor needs to understand its inherent semantics and allow for a humanreadable presentation. The semantic wiki SWiM offers this support for the OpenMath markup language. Using OpenMath as an example, we present a way of integrating a semantic markup language into a semantic wiki using a document ontology and extracting RDF triples from XML markup. As a benefit gained from making semantics explicit, we show how SWiM supports the collaborative editing of definitions of mathematical symbols and their visual appearance.
