Mathematical Knowledge Representation: Semantic Models and Formalisms [article]

Alexander Elizarov and Alexander Kirillovich and Evgeny Lipachev and Olga Nevzorova and Valery Solovyev and Nikita Zhiltsov
2014 arXiv   pre-print
The paper provides a survey of semantic methods for solution of fundamental tasks in mathematical knowledge management. Ontological models and formalisms are discussed.  ...  We propose an ontology of mathematical knowledge, covering a wide range of fields of mathematics. We demonstrate applications of this representation in mathematical formula search, and learning.  ...  Acknowledgments: A.  ...

An Agile and Ontology-Aided Modeling Environment [chapter]

Emanuele Laurenzi, Knut Hinkelmann, Alta van der Merwe
2018 Lecture Notes in Business Information Processing  
To this end, a modeling language is grounded with an ontology language providing a clear, unambiguous and machine-interpretable semantics.  ...  Mechanisms implemented in the AOAME ensure the propagation of changes from the modeling environment to the graph-based database containing the ontology.  ...  In more detail, the PO contains concepts and relations about graphical notations of the modeling language as well as knowledge for positioning the graphical notations over the palette.  ...

Data modelling versus ontology engineering

Peter Spyns, Robert Meersman, Mustafa Jarrar
2002 SIGMOD record  
The first part of this paper concerns some aspects that help to understand the differences and similarities between ontologies and data models.  ...  Unlike data models, the fundamental asset of ontologies is their relative independence of particular applications, i.e. an ontology consists of relatively generic knowledge that can be reused by different  ...  The items mentioned below -in a non exhaustive manner -do not (yet) lead to a numerical measure or function that unequivocally allows differentiating an ontology from a data model.  ...

Cohabitation of Relational Databases and Domain Ontologies in the Semantic Web Context

Leila Zemmouchi-Ghomari
2018 Journal of Systems Integration  
On the other hand, ontology technology is the most promising solution for concretizing the Semantic Web vision; however, it has not been recognized as the Semantic Web data model thus far.  ...  This paper aims to bridge the gap between ontologies and databases in the context of the Semantic Web by highlighting their advantages and disadvantages, their complementarity, and the most popular means  ...  The OntER tool is a Java-based plug-in for building a conceptual model of a relational database from an ontology as an intermediate model.  ...

Integration of Heterogeneous Requirements using Ontologies

Ahmad Mustafa, Wan M.N., Noraini Ibrahim, Muhammad Arif, Muhammad Younas
2018 International Journal of Advanced Computer Science and Applications  
In this study, a framework has been proposed to integrate heterogeneous requirements by using local and global ontologies.  ...  Ontologies can be used to define information and knowledge semantics during the requirements engineering phases, such as analysis, specification, validation and management of requirements.  ...  Ontology has explicit classes and properties and used as a standard form for knowledge representation of concepts inside a domain.  ...

Knowledge modeling directed by situation-specific models

1998 International Journal of Human-Computer Studies  
From a knowledge engineering perspective it makes sense that the notion of an SSM should play a major role in the modeling of tasks.  ...  Second, the model captures strategic (or problem-solving) knowledge in declarative terms pertaining to the ontology of SSMs created for the task.  ...  This follows from the fact that a graphic notation of a goal model actually reflects the application ontology -the explicit list and organization of terms that constitute a representational scheme for  ...
