    "Diagramming" in mathematics: Cognitive tools as triggers for enhancing reasoning

    The aim of my talk is to discuss the role of cognitive tools such as notation and diagrams in mathematics. According to the general framework I propose, the use of these tools depends on the ability of diagramming, which allows us to recruit perception and action in view of more specifically inferential aims. I will present some examples taken from mathematics and discuss some possible directions for future research.
