Search Interfaces for Mathematicians [article]

Andrea Kohlhase
2014 arXiv   pre-print
From the interview data we elicited patterns for the user group "mathematicians" that can be applied when understanding design issues or creating new designs for mathematical search interfaces.  ...  With this understanding we want to be able to reason why mathematicians use which tool for what search problem in what phase of the search process.  ...  Acknowledgement I thank all my interviewees for their motivation and patience with the RGI method.  ...

Search Interfaces for Mathematicians [chapter]

Andrea Kohlhase
2014 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
In this paper, we present a set of design goals for mathematical search interfaces implied by these patterns and insights derived from them.  ...  In a study of professional mathematicians' search behavior we identified ten behavioral patterns particular to mathematicians.  ...  This doesn't yet answer the general question, whether there is a need for a specific math-oriented design for search interfaces.  ...

Math Indexer and Searcher Web Interface: Towards Fulfillment of Mathematicians' Information Needs [article]

Martin Líška, Petr Sojka, Michal Růžička
2014 arXiv   pre-print
We are designing and developing a web user interface for digital mathematics libraries called WebMIaS. It allows queries to be expressed by mathematicians through a faceted search interface.  ...  Formulae are shown rendered by the web browser on-the-fly for users' feedback. We describe WebMIaS design principles and our experiences deploying in the European Digital Mathematics Library (EuDML).  ...  The WebMIaS search interface in Figure 1 observes several design principles and qualities: formulae in T E X Mathematicians know and use compact L A T E X math notation.  ...

Integrating Searching and Authoring in Mizar

Paul Cairns, Jeremy Gow
2007 Journal of automated reasoning  
We abstract from the scenario two distinct styles of searching and describe how the Alcor interface implements these with keyword and LSI-based search.  ...  The Alcor system has been designed to investigate and explore how a mathematician might interact with such an assistant by providing an interface to Mizar and the Mizar Mathematical Library.  ...  Acknowledgements Many thanks to Mike Berry for providing the GTP code. Also, thanks to Eduardo Calvillo and the referees for their very useful comments on this paper.  ...

Results of the 2016 EMS User Survey for zbMATH

Ingo Brüggemann, Klaus Hulek, Olaf Teschke
2017 EMS Newsletter  
Though 66% of the 209 respondents were from Europe (and 22% from Germany), indicating a slight conference participation bias, there was also participa-Survey responses concerning search customs of mathematicians  ...  Even more surprising was the extensive use of free-text feedback for this question. Almost half of all respondents indicated the use of sometimes quite sophisticated combinations of search aspects.  ...  Though 66% of the 209 respondents were from Europe (and 22% from Germany), indicating a slight conference participation bias, there was also participa-Survey responses concerning search customs of mathematicians  ...

FindStat - the combinatorial statistics database [article]

Chris Berg and Viviane Pons and Travis Scrimshaw and Jessica Striker and Christian Stump
2014 arXiv   pre-print
The FindStat project at provides an online platform for mathematicians, particularly for combinatorialists, to gather information about combinatorial statistics and their relations.  ...  You should then think of adding your data through the web interface so that the next person searching for this statistic will be aware of the context in which you found it  ...  FindStat not only supports generating functions, but also has a very flexible user interface which allows you to search for statistics matching the distribution of your input data according to any partition  ...

Computer-assisted human-oriented inductive theorem proving by descente infinie--a manifesto

C.-P. Wirth
2012 Logic Journal of the IGPL  
for this paper.  ...  Acknowledgements I would like to thank Dieter Hutter and Peter Padawitz for some very helpful advice, and Tobias Schmidt-Samoa for many fruitful discussions and a long list of most profound critical suggestions  ...  For this interplay, it does not suffice to compute human-oriented representations of machineoriented proof attempts for interaction with a user interface during the proof search.  ...

The Future of Mathematical Software [chapter]

Ulrich H. Kortenkamp
2002 Mathematics and Visualization  
Many mathematicians do not think that this is a major drawback -"this software is for specialists who know what to do!"  ...  Do not underestimate the value of the user interface. It is not true that software that is for a very special purpose does not need a good user interface, since it is used by a maximum of two people.  ...

EUROMATH is required to provide uniform retrieval facilities for searching in a user's personal data, in a shared database of structured documents and in public, bibliographic databases.  ...  EUROMATH is an example of a Knowledge Worker Support System: it has been designed specifically to support mathematicians in their research work.  ...  Searching for Topics If a user selects either a precise or vague topic need, then the system displays a query form suitable for topic searching, as illustrated below.  ...
