Abstract

Arcform is a notation for expressing diverse thoughts using nodes and arcs in a new graph-like network structure. The structure differs from directed graphs by including arcs that point from or to other arcs, and semi arcs where one end points from or to itself. This supports a new generative statement composition structure which allows expressive statements to be read as grammatically normal sentences while integrated into maps containing multiple statements. This paper describes this compositional structure with a special focus on a few patterns for assigning meaning to nodes and arcs that preserve the above characteristics while ensuring an even tighter integration of diverse statements into networks. A few additional features are considered before raising some far reaching questions about how it can support thought work.
