16 Sabina JeschkeTU Berlin Mathematik in Virtuellen Wissensräumen – Ontological Structures of Mathematical Content Mumie (Retrieval) – Knowledge Nets II: General Relations Network of the Internal Structure of Statements

17 Sabina JeschkeTU Berlin Mathematik in Virtuellen Wissensräumen – Ontological Structures of Mathematical Content Mumie Technology – Core Architecture: Database (Central Content Storage) Java Application Server (processing of queries, delivery of documents) Browser

18 Sabina JeschkeTU Berlin Mathematik in Virtuellen Wissensräumen – Ontological Structures of Mathematical Content Part C: Structures of Mathematical Content

19 Sabina JeschkeTU Berlin Mathematik in Virtuellen Wissensräumen – Ontological Structures of Mathematical Content We need a high degree of contentual structuring: Contentual structuring of fields of knowledge Ontology Formal (~ machine-readable) description of the logical structure of a field of knowledge Standardised terminology Integrates objects AND their interrelation Based on objectifiable (eg logical) structures Explicit specification is a basic requirement Ideally: A model of the natural structure independent of use and user preference Ideally: A model independent of subjective or individual views

20 Sabina JeschkeTU Berlin Mathematik in Virtuellen Wissensräumen – Ontological Structures of Mathematical Content Structure levels within mathematical texts (1-2): Level 1: Level 2: Taxonomy of the Field (content structure and content relations) Entities and their interrelations (structure of text and relation of its parts)

21 Sabina JeschkeTU Berlin Mathematik in Virtuellen Wissensräumen – Ontological Structures of Mathematical Content Level 3: Level 4: Internal structure of the entities (structure of the text within the entities) Syntax and Semantics of mathematical language (analysis of symbols and relations between the symbols) Structure levels within mathematical texts (3-4):

22 Sabina JeschkeTU Berlin Mathematik in Virtuellen Wissensräumen – Ontological Structures of Mathematical Content Structural Level 1: Taxonomy Hierarchical Model

23 Sabina JeschkeTU Berlin Mathematik in Virtuellen Wissensräumen – Ontological Structures of Mathematical Content Network Model Structural Level 1: Taxonomy

24 Sabina JeschkeTU Berlin Mathematik in Virtuellen Wissensräumen – Ontological Structures of Mathematical Content Taxonomy of Linear Algebra – The Cube: hu

25 Sabina JeschkeTU Berlin Mathematik in Virtuellen Wissensräumen – Ontological Structures of Mathematical Content The Dimensions of The Cube: Linear Space - Dual Space - Space of bilinear forms - Space of multilinear forms Linear mapping induces structure through the principle of duality Concept of inductive sequences (0, 1,..., n) Principal of Duality: Geometrical Structure: Linear algebra without geometry – with norm (length) added – with scalar product (angles) added Spaces and structural invariants – abstract and concrete: Vector Spaces are spaces with a linear structure – linear mappings preserve the linearity between vector spaces Vector spaces and linear mappings exist in an abstract and in a concrete sense (including coordinates)
