Want to ask if someone knows a official site where all kind of rules like $\infty-\infty$ or $\infty^0$ are classified. Ment an paper rule collector for that kind of definitions which has an certified character. ok wikipedia is also fine, but thats not that what i ment. in the IT sector you have RFC's similar to papers but an really uniqe form, because the RFC's are strict reglementated by an CA ietf.org. Exists in mathematic also an CA with that kind of strict reglementations? If yes which is it and where can i find all kind of rules which exists in mathematics in one place? And i dont ment wikipedia :D it's cool but still in progress to became an regular CA. thx
The field of mathematics does not have a central regulatory board, like many computing platforms do (e.g., the IETF RFC's). Definitions of terms become standardized only through common use and consensus -- it is very common for different textbooks, papers, etc. to define the same term differently. There is no site for "official" definitions.
One example of an academic paper reflecting on this issue:
- Gómez, Bernardo. "Historical conflicts and subtleties with the √ sign in textbooks." 6th European Summer University on the History and Epistemology in Mathematics Education. HPM: Vienna University of Technology, Vienna, Austria (2010).
