Abstract

Mathematical formulas challenge an OCR system with a range of similar-looking characters whose bold, calligraphic, and italic varieties must be recognized distinctly, though the fonts to be used in an article are not known in advance. We describe the use of support vector machines (SVM) to learn and predict about 300 classes of styled characters and symbols.
