Topic Maps, References, Ontology


This use case shows how Topic Map (TM) technologies can be used consistently for knowledge engineering in the field of literature references. For demonstration we introduce a family of notations, AsTMa*, which allows us not only to capture factual information with TMs but also let us define an appropriate ontology. To benchmark a TM query language we consider a simple application which converts literature references stored in TMs into the BIBTEX format.
