MiniLaTeX: Plans for 2019-20


I’ll be spending the 2019-20 academic year in Paris at the Collège de France. My plan is to work on type theory and MiniLaTeX, with the aim (for the latter) of rolling out some significant improvements – the parser, renderer, and the apps in which it is used. Two subprojects in particular: (a) do a Haskell implementation of the parser, (b) write a specification for MiniLaTeX and show that both the new Haskell and the existing (or improved) Elm implementations satisfy the specification. The reason for (a) is first to have way to cross-validate parsing and second to show that the technology is not language-dependent.

If you have suggestions or bugs to report, please let me know. I can be reached via jxxcarlson at gmail.
