### An Approach to Similarity Search for Mathematical Expressions using MathML

The recent global computerization and digitization trend has helped to increase the numbers of documents with mathematical expressions on the Web. These mathematical expressions have their own unique structures, and therefore, it is not an easy task for traditional search systems targeting natural languages to deal with them. We propose a similarity search method for mathematical equations that is particularly adapted to the tree structures expressed by MathML based on this background. The similarity...
