The SlugMath Wiki is under heavy development!
The SlugMath wiki is currently under development by Martin Weissman, with the funding and support of the University of California, Santa Cruz. The core of the SlugMath wiki is a rigorous treatment of undergraduate mathematics, including definitions, theorems, and proofs of the most basic theorems in set theory, analysis, geometry, and algebra. On top of this core, there will be various tools and resources for students and faculty, to assist in the teaching and learning of undergraduate mathematics.
The SlugMath wiki relies on the Semantic Mediawiki extension of the Mediawiki software, as well as numerous other extensions and customizations. As such, the SlugMath wiki is considerably more structured and controlled than other Mediawiki installations, such as Wikipedia. The core content of the SlugMath wiki is developed and verified by experts, and other content will be more openly developed. Using the semantic mediawiki extension, information in the wiki is "semantically linked", in many different ways. This additional data allows the SlugMath wiki to be effectively queried and navigated. In addition, the semantic links provide crucial data for applications which visualize the mathematical corpus.
What the SlugMath wiki is not
- The SlugMath wiki is not meant to be an "online textbook", though such features may be added at a later time.
- The SlugMath wiki does not attempt to process individual mathematical sentences, or automate the proof or verification of theorems.
