In the context of MediaWiki and Semantic MediaWiki, namespace management is realized through the use of key phrases and inter-linked properties, indexed in the relational database of MediaWiki.

Namespace management is the foundation of mathematics, as Henri Poincaré once said:

Mathematics is the art of labeling different things with the same name.

This observation is directly applicable in the field of systems engineering, software engineering, and most importantly, reveals the foundational mechanism of how to organize names, using number theory. The use of number theory to analyze namespace can be dated back to Euclid's work on reasoning about the infinite supply of prime numbers, and Kurt Godel's work on the Incompleteness Theorem.

Naming a page

A Naming system could be formalized as a set of naming rules mapping from values to names:

To decide the naming rules, the prerequisite is to figure out how to organize data in a system. Knowledge organization/representation has different styles Paper/Knowledge Organization and Representation under the AI Lens. In a rule-based representation style, each page entity is matched with rewrite rules based on its patterns. When combining with object-attribute-value, or semantic representation style, the patterns could be defined by its attributes or relations. For example, a name for a program could be a string concatenated by its input semantic and output semantic: {{Output}}from{{Input}} turing into Beta Distribution From Mean And SD
