Abstract

Mathematical Notation is generally though of as universal and constant.
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.
