We present a system for recognizing online mathematical expressions (ME). Symbol recognition is based on a template elastic matching distance between pen direction features. The structural analysis of the ME is based on extracting the baseline of the ME and then classifying symbols into levels above and below the baseline. The symbols are then sequentially analyzed using six spatial relations and a respective 2d structure is processed to give the resulting MathML representation of the ME. The system was evaluated on the Competition on Recognition of Online Handwritten Mathematical Expressions (CROHME) 2011 datasets and demonstrates promising results.
