concepts – Keeping track of formal ‘concepts’ for a particular field

The package helps to keep track of formal ‘concepts’ for a specific field or document. This is particularly useful for scientific papers (for example, in physics, mathematics or computer science), which may introduce several concepts (with their own symbols). The package’s commands allow the user to define a concept (typically, near its first use), and will ensure consistent use throughout the document.

The package depends on several other packages; while these are fairly common packages, the user should check the package’s README file for the complete list.
