Equation Mode / LaTeX support
#1
Dear users,

this forum is LaTeX enabled, a major advancement for writing formulas than discussing everything in ASCII as is necessary in newsgroups.
You can put formulas into your postings as in the following example:
Code:
[tex]x=\frac{-b\pm\sqrt{b^2-4ac}}{2a}[/tex]
yields


For a list of the LaTeX possibilities, see the mimetex tutorial. Note however that mimetex does not support all LaTeX commands.

Unlike some other forum I remember, you even see your TeX in the preview.



So you can fix your mistakes before actually posting it.

There is a way to use the mathfrak style in the forum?

for example here I write "\mathscr S=\mathfrak S"

and the result is the same



MSE MphLee
Mother Law \((\sigma+1)0=\sigma (\sigma+1)\)
S Law \(\bigcirc_f^{\lambda}\square_f^{\lambda^+}(g)=\square_g^{\lambda}\bigcirc_g^{\lambda^+}(f)\)

Tex sometimes gives problems.

those are often related to added spaces ( pressing space or enter ) within or around the tex message.

On smartphones this issue rarely occurs but on laptops and desktops this can make the tex invisible or added "??".

Well my experience lately.

So I thought I should share it.

It's always been that way tommy, you have to fine tune your latex to this forum, lol. I secretly wish this forum was coded using MathJax.
