\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 $\normalsize~3x$

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

• 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 $\tiny~3x$

absolute font sizes (overview)

 Absolute Font Sizes Command Example Result \tiny $$\tiny 3x$$ $\tiny 3x$ \small $$\small 3x$$ $\small 3x$ \normalsize (default) $$\normalsize 3x$$ or just $$3x$$ $\normalsize 3x$ \large $$\large 3x$$ $\large 3x$ \Large $$\Large 3x$$ $\Large 3x$ \LARGE $$\LARGE 3x$$ $\LARGE 3x$ \huge and \Huge are not supported by the mimeTeX filter

algebraic expression

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

alpha (lower case greek letter)

$$\alpha$$ gives $\alpha$

angle bracket

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

$\left$

arithmetic operations

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

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