The UTMOST project will continue the development of MathBook XML begun on the earlier grant. Three of the basic principles guiding the design of MathBook XML (MBX for short) are

  • MBX is a markup language that captures the structure of textbooks and research papers in the mathematical sciences.
  • MBX is human-readable and human-writable.
  • MBX documents serve as a single source which can be easily converted to multiple other formats, current and future.

To find out more about MBX, to get started writing mathematics with MBX, to see examples and read the documentation, refer to the MathBook XML website.
