Do you know some sort of mathematical notation library? Notation reference manual? A list of expressions?

Example:

$\overline{1,n}$. I suppose to understand what that mean, but would be glad to find a list where the context of this notation will be explained. Maybe, referring to authors who use it, or dates when / counrties where this notation was/is used.

Thanks.

    $\begingroup$ Many books have indices of notation at the back, where you can look this sort of stuff up. That notation is not standard, at least where I'm from. $\endgroup$ – Joppy Oct 19 '17 at 10:53

    $\begingroup$ @Joppy Some times it's in the front. Some times it's not there at all. It depends. $\endgroup$ – Arthur Oct 19 '17 at 10:54

    $\begingroup$ usually if there is some weird notation they explain in the exercise. without the comma I would say that it means a two digit number which has first digit $1$ and the second digit is $n$ (counted from left to right). $\endgroup$ – Vinyl_cape_jawa Oct 19 '17 at 10:54
  • $\begingroup$ in the context I was reading it it was $(1,2,...,n)$. Books are perfect, but the internet consists of not only books. You can "wikipate" something about Jacobian interation, and many articles will not explain all of the used notation. Thanks! $\endgroup$ – Kirill Oct 19 '17 at 11:07
