Annotating the L-functions and Modular Forms Database

During the week of March 18-22, 2019, a workshop was held at the Institute for Advanced Study (IAS) in Princeton. This workshop had approximately 20 participants, and it was supported in part by the IAS, the American Institute of Mathematics (AIM), and the Simons Foundation. We explored several ways to improve the dissemination of mathematical knowledge via the LMFDB, including: expanding on the current use of “knowls” to display context-free information, implementing annotations which provide context and references associated to individual mathematical objects (as in the OEIS), and implementing a way to visualize the many predictions of the Langlands program within the framework of the LMFDB.
