Ontologies and related Semantic Web technologies are applied in many areas where mathematical relationships are essential to the domain knowledge. However, unlike ontologies and logical rule languages, mathematical expressions and calculation rules are not an intrinsic part of the linked data representation. Therefore, additional mapping processes between semantic domain models and the programs executing the mathematical computations are usually required.

The Numerate Web is an approach to representing mathematical models with RDF, linking them to RDF resources and properties, running computations, and finally also making the results available as part of the RDF representation.
