Abstract

We present MathPaper, a system for fluid pen-based entry and editing of mathematics with support for interactive computation. MathPaper provides a paper-like environment in which multiple mathematical expressions and even algorithms can be entered anywhere on the page. Mathematical expressions can also be modified using simple deletion and dragging gestures with real-time recognition and computation feedback. In addition, we support extended notations and gestures for controlling computational assistance, simplifying input, and entering algorithms, making MathPaper a user-friendly system for mathematical sketching and computation.
