@Carlo So far it looks very promising - and provides pretty much interesting reading material ... Thanks a lot! @Stephan Thank you very much for your helping hand.

comment Do you use the Mathematics Subject Classification (MSC) when searching for literature?
Oh, Gerhard, you interestingly mentioned the term "thesaurus". Many subjects do come up with sophisticated thesauri, but due to my knowledge there is no community established thesaurus (in its proper meaning) in mathematics.

Tom wrote "Maybe there are other uses." Neil, here you brought a completely new aspect to the discussion: a use of the MSC in a certain project context. Does somebody know further projects involving the MSC or making use of it?

Joe, your answer confirms my impression that the idea of keeping up-to-date in a field that is outlined by a classification code is definitely worthwhile.

comment Do you use the Mathematics Subject Classification (MSC) when searching for literature?
Neil, you wrote "This is the only use ..." but keeping up-to-date in a somewhat broader sense and not restricted to one's own specific research field seems to be more than most of us do today.

comment Do you use the Mathematics Subject Classification (MSC) when searching for literature?
Tom, this is indeed a comprehensible argument, which is convincingly illustrated by a "tasty" example, but Yemon's comment beautifully shows that there is some evidence of the MSC in the case that one cannot use a known term search.

Henry, thank you very much for your response. I think the best that can happen to a question is that it sets off reflecting on something and gives way to a try. Obviously, there is a lot of agreement with your answer.

I made it "community wiki". Anton, thank you for your advice.

Misha, that argument sounds plausible to me. Thank you very much!
