\normalsize

  • Everthing following the \normalsize command will be output in the smallest predefined font size until the system encounters another font size command.
  • \normalsize is the default font size, i.e. the size automatically chosen if there is no font size command
  • Ex.: $$\normalsize~3x$$ gives \normalsize~3x

\qquad

  • inserts a double space of current character set size
  • Ex.: $$a\qquad~b$$ gives a\qquad~b

\quad

  • inserts a space of current character set size
  • Ex.: $$a\quad~b$$ gives a\quad~b

\small

  • \small
  • Ex.: $$\small~3x$$ gives \small~3x

\tiny

  • Everthing following the \tiny command will be output in the smallest predefined font size until the system encounters another font size command.
  • Ex.: $$\tiny~3x$$ gives \tiny~3x

algebraic expression

using @@ x=y^2@@ to create x=y^{2}

alpha (lower case greek letter)

$$\alpha$$ gives \alpha

angle bracket

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

\left<f,g\right>

arithmetic operations

  • 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.
