Digital Repository of Mathematical Formulae KLS Seeding Project



Howard S. Cohl, Marjorie A. McClain, Bonita V. Saunders, Moritz Schubotz, Cherry Y. Zou, Alex A. Danoff, Azeem S. Mohammed


One initial goal for the DRMF is to seed our digital compendium with fundamental orthogonal polynomial formulae. We have received permission from Springer-Verlag and the authors to use formulae from Chapters 1, 9, and 14 from the book "Hypergeometric Orthogonal Polynomials and their $q$-Analogues" (2010) by Koekoek, Lesky and Swarttouw (KLS). The input KLS LaTeX format describes the printed representation of the formulae, but does not contain explicit semantic information. We have developed a semantic enrichment process whose goal is to infer semantic information from the LaTeX source. The generated context free semantic information is used to build DRMF formula home pages for each individual KLS formula. See
