:
$$\alpha$$ gives \alpha
:
  • Syntax: \left<...\right>
  • Ex.: $$\left<f,g\right>$$ gives

\left&lt;f,g\right&gt;

:
  • Type arithmetic operations and "=" as usual.
  • Exp.: $$f(x)=x-2b+(3a/c)$$ gives

f(x)=x-2b+(3a/c)

  • See also keyword "fraction" for extended capabilities.
:
  • Syntax for an n-dimensional array:
    \begin{array}a1&...&an\end{array}
  • Ex.: $$\(\begin{array}a_{\fs{0}1}\fs{3},&a_{\fs{0}2}\fs{3},&a_{\fs{0}3}\end{array}\)$$ gives

(\begin{array}a_{\fs{0}1}\fs{3},&amp;a_{\fs{0}2}\fs{3},&amp;a_{\fs{0}3}\end{array})

B

:
$$\beta$$ gives \beta
:
  • Syntax: \left{...\right}
  • Ex.: $$M=\left{a, b, c\right}$$ gives

M=\left{a, b, c\right}

C

:
$$a\cdot~b$$ gives a\cdot~b
:
$$\chi$$ gives \chi
:
  • Numbers in formulas are interpreted as constants and they are rendered in non-italic roman font face, which is a widely used convention.
  • Following this convention, variables are shown in italic.
  • Exp.: $$f(x)=3a+x$$ gives

f(x)=3a+x
