Details of the proposal
Project descriptionThe NIST Digital Repository of Mathematical Formulae is designed for

a mathematically literate audience and should

  1. facilitate interaction among a community of mathematicians and scientists interested in compendia formulae data for orthogonal polynomials and special functions;
  2. be expandable, allowing the input of new formulae from the literature;
  3. provide open information for related linked open data projects;
  4. represent the context-free full semantic information concerning individual formulas;
  5. have a user friendly, consistent, and hyperlinkable viewpoint and authoring perspective;
  6. contain easily searchable mathematics; and
  7. take advantage of modern MathML tools for easy to read, scalably rendered content driven mathematics.
For more information see Digital Repository of Mathematical Formulae or arXiv:1404.6519.

This proposal was moved from Incubator.

We are currently hosting our test wiki on labs http://drmf.wmflabs.org/wiki/Main_Page this is not optimal, since labs is probably not the best place to curate content.

Now, we are going to switch to a model which store large portion of the data in a wikibase instance. Thus it becomes more and more important to have a reliable infrastructure.

While this is completely open, we were asking our self, if we could become an incubator project. --Physikerwelt (talk) 19:28, 7 April 2016 (UTC)Reply[reply]
