### Upcoming seminars:
##### The Knowledge of Mathematics

- *Speaker*: Patrick Ion (Mathematical Reviews (retd.), University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, MI)
**Abstract.** Mathematics is a body of knowledge, and it has many representations. A
library is traditionally a repository of materials that provide access to knowledge.
The idea of a universal library, or of one just for mathematics, has long been an
obvious one. In the modern day (last century or so) it has come up again from
time to time with each new technological change and notion of representing
mathematics. Working forward from a resolution of the International Mathematical
Union in 2006 efforts have been under taken to realize a Global Digital Mathematics Library. As part of this an International Mathematical Knowledge Trust has been
founded. I will speak of grand plans, small successes and enormous challenges
that remain in describing some of recent GDML/IMKT activity. This will be from
the point of view I've acquired as a result of watching the field from
Math Reviews (MR) for 30 years or so, being involved with TeX and databases
at MR and with creation of MathML, as well as trying to understand a little bit
of specific subjects (quantum field theory and statistical mechanics, hyperfunctions,
non-commutative geometry, quantum stochastic processes---i.e., anti-Gauss: "multa sed immatura")
