The QED Manifesto after Two Decades - Version 2.0

Abstract—In 1994 the QED Manifesto described an ideal whereby mathematics is communicated via a computerized system in a fully formalized fashion complete with automatic proof checking and other derived tools facilitating profound improvements to the way mathematics is taught, the way new results are disseminated, and ultimately to how mathematics is practiced. Two decades later it is safe to say the dream is not yet a reality. Analyzing some of the difficulties met thus far in the realization of the original Manifesto we propose here Version 2.0, presenting a view of a different ideal and a description of a system realizing part of that ideal.

Index Terms—Mathematical knowledge management, QED Manifesto, automatic proof checking, MCML.
