Wiki

From TORI
Jump to: navigation, search

Wiki is style of a site that allows the readers to correct the existing articles and to load new articles. Also, wiki is generic name for such a site. Some wikis have restriction, allowing the editing to only registered users (some times only for some of articles). Many wikis use English as main working language; some of them allow also texts in other languages.

In particular, there exist the following wikis:

Articles about Science in the extremely strict meaning, and also the illustrations (that may be not scientific, but should have some religious or artistic sense).

http://www.wikiproofs.de Site dedicated to mathematics in the sense of formal logic: the algorithmic proofs are suggested in the computer-oriented form. Good place to get analysis of the fundamentals of arithmetics, beginning since "1+1=2", but not only arithmetics.

http://rosettacode.org/wiki/Rosetta_Code programming chrestomathy site. The idea is to present solutions to the same task in as many different languages as possible, to demonstrate how languages are similar and different, and to aid a person with a grounding in one approach to a problem in learning another. The LOGO is dark irregular spot.

http://www.mediawiki.org Site about installation and support of wiki. Good place to begin with, aiming to create a new wiki.

There are many other wikies in the world; their amount grows fastly. Due to the hard set of the axioms formulated at the Main Page, TORI is not supposed to compete with any others wikis. In many cases, the link to the article in another wiki (especially if from the list above), perhaps, with a short summary (for example, the preamble with few references), is better than repetition of the similar text in TORI.
