Hi, my name is Tom Wiesing and I am a PhD candidate in the KWARC Group at FAU Erlangen-Nürnberg.
In my free time I like to code and make random websites. I also volunteer for the Jacobs Alumni Association, acting as their Assessor of Information Technology.
Mathematical practice typically consists of four aspects:
These are connected by a central ontology.
My research topic is how to digitally support such tetrapodal mathematics with a focus on search. I am performing this research using research systems such as MathHub, MathWebSearch and MathDataHub.
I am particularly interested in mathematical datasets, and how these are typicalled searched through in practice. Datasets can include anything from simple listings of interesting mathematical objects; via corpora of papers written in LaTeX; to strictly defined objects in some logical system.
Search practices consists of queries and how to evaluate them. Queries can range from simple things like find all groups with a specific generator to more complex things like find all papers that cite a paper which contains a formula that unifies with
I have visited the National Institute of Standards and Technology four times between 2017 and 2021 in order to help work on LaTeXML, a software that transforms LaTeX documents into annotated XHTML.
I was formerly associated to Jacobs University Bremen, where I achieved aMaster Of Science in Data Engineering (Class of 2017) and a Bachelor Of Science in Applied & Computational Mathematics (Class of 2015). I was also the President of the Graduate Student Association of Jacobs University for the majority of my final two semesters.
