Math context reference

Compounds consist of a single-quote followed by the compound name and sub-elements (separated by commas) in parentheses, if any. See the MINSE syntax page for details on syntax. This page defines the mathematics context for giving meaning to a MINSE expression. The common context definitions are included as part of this definition.


In definitions, A, B, C... refer to the respective sub-elements of the compound. Parts of the definition within square brackets refer to optional sub-elements.




Much of this context has been assembled with the help of the Collins Dictionary of Mathematics by E. J. Borowski and J. M. Borwein. My favourite definition from the book, given on page 411, is duplicated here (without permission) for your enjoyment.
