### Abstract

This is not as true as the layman thinks, and Notation is in fact an evolving,

subject-specific, collection of sub-notations, where the same symbol can mean

different things in different parts of the same sentence. This paper surveys

the various ways computers process, and help humans to process, the varieties

of notation.
