Mathematical structure: knowledge representation and interpretation

Abstract:

The main theme of this article is to show the abstraction process of mathematics allows hierarchies of structure, in which for example a 'comparison' becomes an object and so allows for methods of comparison themselves to be compared. Further, a representation of an object need not be unique, and the comparison of representations is important for our understanding and use of an abstraction process.
