I was using the LaTeX representation only as a shorthand for communication. What I am really interested in is specifying the semantic content by using a standardized convention (content mathml) rather than the more informal conventions LaTeX takes advantage of. Indeed, David's latest suggestion, utilizing the domainofapplication element, seems to call for my further study.

If you are content with the LaTeX encoding, why not use presentation MathML to achieve the same result? --Robert From: www-math-request@w3.org [mailto:www-math-request@w3.org] On Behalf Of JB Collins Sent: Tuesday, November 04, 2008 3:06 PM To: David Carlisle Cc: www-math@w3.org Subject: Re: Volume integrals in Content MathML p.s. Alternate differential volume element representations are (in LaTeX) $d^3{\bf r}, d\tau, dV$. For usage context, see for example: Gauss's Theorem, Chap1, §1.1, Math Methods for Physicists, 2ed, by G. Arfken (1970), and corresponding exercises. Also Chap 5, titled "Vector Integration", in Schaum's Outline of "Vector Analysis" by M. R. Spiegel (1959) It would be useful to have a way to abstractly refer, in a basis free manner, to curves, surfaces, volumes, etc., over which integrals are to be evaluated.
