The 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. represent the context-free full semantic information concerning individual formulas;
  4. have a user friendly, consistent, and hyperlinkable viewpoint and authoring perspective;
  5. contain easily searchable mathematics; and
  6. 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.
