Mathematica 3.0 and 4.0 understand most standard mathematical notations such as integrals, sums, products, etc. But in many mathematical fields, particularly pure mathematics, a variety of additional specific notations are used. The programmability of input and output in Mathematica makes it possible to introduce these kinds of notations, and to integrate them into your work.

The Notation package provides a variety of utilities allowing you to flexibly and extensively create and add your own notations to a Mathematica session. The full documentation for the package can be found within the Mathematica Help Browser (Add-ons > Extras > Utilities > Notation Package. Without the Notation package creating and defining your own notations can be laborious and problematic.
