The Metamodelling Language (MML) is a sub-set of the Unified Modeling Language (UML) that is proposed as the core language used to bootstrap the UML 2.0 definition initiative. Since it is metacircular, MML requires an external formal semantics in order to ground it. This paper defines the MML Calculus which is used to formally define MML and therefore provides a semantic basis for UML 2.0.
