Mission Statement

  1. Lurch should be as indistinguishable from the ordinary activities of mathematics as possible, except for the additional services it provides. That is, it should only add to your math experience, not change your math experience.
  2. Lurch should provide the software infrastructure the mathematical community needs for validating rigorous mathematics. That is, it should validate mathematical content created by you — a “spell-checker” for mathematical rigor.
