S
square root  $$\sqrt{a}$$ or $$\sqrt~a$$ gives
 Use braces for terms with more than one character: $$\sqrt{x+y}$$ gives


subscript  The command character "_" triggers subscription of the following expression(s).
 For more than one subscripted character put them in braces {...}.
 Use font sizing commands for appropriate sizing.
 Ex.:$$x_1$$ gives
 Ex. (with specific sizing): $$x_{\small1}=a_{\small{m+2n}}$$ gives
 Combine subscripting with superscripting (command character "^").
Syntax: Expr_{subExpr}^{supExpr}.  Ex.: $$A_{\small{i,j,k}}^{\small{n+2}}$$ gives


sum (summation)  General syntax for symbols with a kind of lower and upper limits:
\symbolname_{lowerexpression}^{upperexpression}  In general, there are two ways how these lower and upper expressions can be placed: centered below and above the symbol or in a subscript / superscript manner. In the first case the symbol name is preceded by the word "big", in the second there is no prefix.
 Syntax for summation symbol:
$$\bigsum_{i=k}^{n}$$ gives and $$\sum_{i=k}^{n}$$ gives
$$\LARGE\bigsum_{\small{i=1}}^{\small{n}}$$ gives and $$\large\sum_{\small{i=1}}^{\small{n}}$$ gives 

superscript  The command character "^" triggers superscription of the following expression(s).
 For more than one superscripted character put them in braces {...}.
 Use font sizing commands for appropriate sizing.
 Ex.: $$x^2$$ gives
 Ex. (with specific sizing): $$x^{\small2}=a^{\small{m+2n}}$$ gives
 Combine superscripting with subscripting (command character "_").
Syntax: Expr_{subExpr}^{supExpr}.  Ex.: $$A_{\small{i,j,k}}^{\small{n+2}}$$ gives


T
tau (lower case greek letter) $$\tau$$ gives 

TeX notation allows for the expression of ASCII characters to generate formatted graphics output 

theta (lower case greek letter) $$\theta$$ gives 

Theta (upper case greek letter) $$\Theta$$ gives 

times $$a\times~b$$ gives 

triangle $$\triangle~abc$$ gives
