accepted for publication
  • The growing importance of mathematical software in everyday life—in applications such as internet communication, traffic, and artificial intelligence—necessitates advances in software documentation services to raise awareness of existing packages and their usage. Such information helps potential software developers and users make informed choices about packages that could advance their work in modeling, simulation, and analysis. At the same time, software presents novel challenges to information services that require the development of new methods and means of processing. swMATH provides users with an overview of a broad range of mathematical software and extends documentation services for publications related to such software. It acts as a counterpart to the established abstracting and reviewing services for mathematical publications and has nearly 30,000 entries, making it one of the most comprehensive documentation services in mathematics.
