An Introduction to MimeTex
For those who wish to format math questions on the web using super and subscripting, try using the Tex tags. Tom has been kind enough to import MimeTeX to this site. One thing I cannot yet do with it is make those clever angle brackets for terms certain.
You may see some good samples of how this works at the MimeTex Site , which is a public domain site and I don't believe I am hotlinking. Here's a basic intro. superscripts x^2 ex: Greek Letters \mu ex: Subscripts are done by _. You can put both into a sum or integral. \sum is for summation and \int is for integration. Put special functions like sine, cos and log with backslashes before their name to typeset them correctly. \infty is infinity ex: ex: if More examples can be found on the website, where you can click on an expression and see the tags that generate it. Grouping can be done with curly braces. ex: I hope this brief introduction, combined with the link, will make posting math questions on the web a little bit clearer and easier.
