Abstract : Consideration is given to the possibility of providing a computer and a cathode ray printer with an unlimited repertory of characters. Digitalizations are presented for mathematic, cartographic, and calligraphic characters. The repertory is available to any computer through FORTRAN IV programming. The latest cathode ray printers are almost adequate for the preparation of mathematical reports. Some progress has been made toward development of a mnemonic code for the recording of a mathematical text on tape.
