Mathematical models play an increasingly important role in science and engineering. In this paper, we present WoM, a platform for building up knowledge repositories for searching, exploring, combining, and sharing such models. In contrast to similar efforts, WoM supports a well-defined semi-structured representation for mathematical models, which acts as a solid foundation for intelligent web-based presentation, browsing, search, simulation/visualization, and Web community capabilities. We envision WoM to provide a foundation for future design flows and engineering processes using standardized, composable, and computer-supported models.
