*To*: slug@Warbucks.AI.SRI.COM*Subject*: Mathematical Formulas in Concordia?*From*: ARTHUR@GUINEVERE.tamu.edu (Arthur Keen)*Date*: Mon, 9 Apr 90 13:31:00 EDT

I am building up online documentation for an Engineering Modeling Design Support Environment using Concordia. This approach has been very successfull, excepting that Concordia does not handle math very well. Our specification is as follows: 1) Each equation must be mouse sensitive and reference an explanation of its derivation, and assumptions for the range of input values for which it is applicable. 2) Each variable in every equation that is documented, must be mouse sensitive and reference an explanation. For relatively simple equations, this is pretty straightforward to do in Concordia, but as the equations become more complex, it becomes a nightmare. The immediate solution that springs to mind is to use Macsyma to generate the equations (or generate them in Tex) and then import them as pictures in postscript, but this would mean a loss of recursive mouse sensitivity. It would be nice if Concordia would allow inline Tex commands for doing this kind of thing. I feel certain that someone out there has faced this kind of problem before, especially in the publication of papers, and I would be grateful if you could point me in the right direction, or confirm that I am doing it the best way possible at present.
