For those of you who are interested in staying abreast of new uses of Mathematica, here's another way in which Mathematica is helping to establish technical standards. All mathematical formulas in all U.S. patents and in the official U.S. Patent Gazette are now being typeset with Mathematica. Reed Technology and Information Services (RTIS), the holder of the Patent Database contract, is using a customized Mathematica package and interface to create both printed and electronic forms of mathematical formulas from the original materials submitted by inventors. This new typesetting tool streamlines patent processing, decreasing processing time and increasing mathematical accuracy. The Mathematica system automatically creates multiple electronic files for each formula, including EPS, TIFF, notebook (NB file), and MathML, making them easily output to both print and electronic media.
