Abstract

The advent of digital technology has brought a world of new possibilities for editors of historical texts. Though much has been written about conventions for digital editing, relatively little attention has been paid to the particular question of how best to deal with texts with heavily mathematical content. This essay outlines some ways of encoding mathematics in digital form, and then discusses three recent digital editions of collections of early modern mathematical manuscripts.
