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.

array

  • 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},&a_{\fs{0}2}\fs{3},&a_{\fs{0}3}\end{array})
