A Purely Online Approach to Mathematical Expression Recognition

Abstract : In this paper a new approach to handwritten mathematical expression recognition is presented. The approach is highly original in that the solution, an expression tree, is immediately updated whenever the user writes a new stroke. Fuzzy logic is used extensively, in both the symbol recognition and structural analysis phases, which is appropriate given the amount of imprecision and ambiguity present in handwritten mathematics. The approach is highly efficient and encouraging results have been achieved.
