Unfortunately Axiom does not contain a thorough description of the 
mathematical principles. It does not even contain a good explanation
of category theory or even of the algorithms that it uses. By design
this will change in the future provided people lend their expertise
to the problem. It's clearly a 30 year horizon goal.
