Mathematics Database zbMATH Rolls Out Enhancements

Recent upgrades to zbMATH, a mathematics information system, include a new web interface, better functionality, more precise searching, and a new database for mathematical software. zbMATH, which is the largest database for publications in the pure and applied mathematics fields, has more than 3 million references to international mathematics publications dating from nearly 200 years ago; it is geared to those who work with mathematics professionally.

The FIZ Karlsruhe - Leibniz Institute for Information Infrastructure, a Germany-based, nonprofit information infrastructure organization, created zbMATH, which is edited by FIZ Karlsruhe, the European Mathematical Society (EMS), and the Heidelberg Academy of Sciences and Humanities. FIZ Karlsruhe is a member of the Leibniz Association, an organization comprising more than 80 institutions that promote science and research.

Systems such as zbMATH “are nowadays indispensable for searching as well as for analyzing and visualizing research information. Our requirements have not only broadened but have also become more complex,” according to Marta Sanz-Solé, EMS president. “The new possibilities offered by zbMATH support us not only in finding individual publications but also in analyzing answer sets and thus discovering additional information that leads us to new findings.”

zbMATH is designed to help researchers discover how mathematical topics have evolved over time, what current research is saying about a particular topic, and what areas have had the most growth. FIZ Karlsruhe improved the power of zbMATH's search engine, visuals, and abstracts, making the information on the database more precise. It also added mouse-over functions, scroll-down menus, and mobile optimization.

swMATH, a database for searching mathematical software, was integrated with zbMATH so that publications in zbMATH can be linked from swMATH; swMATH is sponsored by the Leibniz Association’s Joint Initiative for Research and Innovation.
