Design Science, Inc.

Design Science (DSI) was founded in 1986 and is headquartered in Long Beach, California. We are the worldwide leader in developing, marketing and supporting software for scientific and technical communication. Our MathType, MathFlow, and MathPlayer software products are used by scientists, engineers, educators and publishing professionals, for authoring and publishing mathematical notation in print and online documents, and for building web pages with interactive math content. We also license components and technology to many OEM partners who want to math-enable their own products. We aggressively research new products and technologies, particularly those that extend our commanding lead in MathML technology.






Design Science MathType™ is a powerful interactive tool for Windows and Macintosh that lets you create mathematical notation for word processing, web pages, desktop publishing, presentations, and for TeX, LaTeX, and MathML documents. MathType is the professional version of the Equation Editor in Microsoft Office and works with 100s of applications and websites


Design Science MathFlow™ is our family of products providing editing, display, and accessibility of mathematical notation for websites, applications, and services. MathFlow components are widely used in education, publishing, and enterprise solutions, as well as commercial products. The technology at the heart of MathFlow is MathML, the XML standard for representing mathematical notation.


Design Science MathPlayer™ is a universal math reader that enables math to be spoken in assistive technology products. MathPlayer continues to have the most advanced support for MathML of any renderer available, including support of MathML 3 features such as line-breaking, indentation and elementary math, and supports both visual rendering and speech in Internet Explorer. We are making MathPlayer available for free in order to accelerate the adoption of MathML in the math, science, and education communities.
