    abstract = {As a foundation for a framework for brokering mathematical services distributed among networked servers, we propose a language that describes the mathematical problems solved by the services. This mathematical service description language extends \textsc{wsdl}, the web service description language. Servers register their problem solving capabilities expressed in this language with a ``semantic broker'' to which clients submit corresponding task descriptions. The broker (possibly in cooperation with a deduction system) determines the suitable services and returns them to the client for invocation. This mechanism thus hides from the client the actual implementation of mathematical services and focuses on the semantical aspects.},
