MATHEMATICS, SIMULATION AND MODELLING
15 July 2013
Leibniz Institute for Information Infrastructure has developed a new user interface providing what it describes as an intuitive, easy-to-use information service with enlarged functionality that meets the requirements of users in the mathematical community.
The company says zbMATH is the world’s largest information system for mathematics. It is jointly edited by FIZ Karlsruhe, the European Mathematical Society (EMS) and the Heidelberg Academy of Sciences.
'The scientists’ demands on information services have significantly changed over the years,' said Marta Sanz-Solé, president of the European Mathematical Society.
'Information systems like zbMATH are nowadays indispensable for searching as well as for analysing and visualising research information. Our requirements have not only broadened but have also become more complex. The new possibilities offered by zbMATH support us not only in finding individual publications but also in analysing answer sets and thus discovering additional information that leads us to new findings.'
