Math Notation Help

This glossary will help you build complex mathematical equations using the Tex markup language. This will involve using @@ or $$ before and after the expression to display the desired results.

formula box

$$\fbox{x=\frac{1}{2}}$  gives </p><p align="center">\fbox{x=\frac{1}{2}}$$


  • Syntax: \frac{numerator}{denominator}
  • Use font sizing commands for specific sizing if you don't want the predefined one to be taken.
  • Ex. (with predefined sizing): $$f(x,y)=\frac{2a}{x+y}$ gives </li></ul><p style="text-align:center;">f(x,y)=\frac{2a}{x+y}$$

    • Ex. (with specific sizing): $$f(x,y)=\frac{\fs{2}2a}{\fs{2}x+y}$ gives </li></ul><p style="text-align:center;">f(x,y)=\frac{\fs{2}2a}{\fs{2}x+y}$$

      • You may nest fractions as much as you want.
      • Ex. (nested fractions): $$\frac{\frac{a}{x-y}+\frac{b}{x+y}}{1+\frac{a-b}{a+b}}$ gives </li></ul><p style="text-align:center;">\frac{\frac{a}{x-y}+\frac{b}{x+y}}{1+\frac{a-b}{a+b}}$$


gamma (lower case greek letter)

$$\gamma$ gives \gamma$$

Gamma (upper case greek letter)

$$\Gamma$ gives \Gamma$$

greater than

$$x>y$  gives </p><p align="center">x>y$$

greater than or equal

$$x\ge~y$ or $$x\geq~y$ gives


greek letters (overview)

Simply write \greekletter for lower case and \Greekletter for upper case.

Here's a list of all known greek letters (Note: not all upper case greek letters are known):

$$\infty$  gives \infty$$


  • General syntax for symbols with a kind of lower and upper limits:


  • 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 integral symbol:

$$\bigint_{0}^{\infty}$   gives   </p><p align="center">\bigint_{0}^{\infty} </p><p align="center">and</p><p align="center">$$\int_{0}^{\infty}$   gives 


  • Use font size commands for a nicer picture:

$$\LARGE\bigint_{\small0}^{\small\infty}$   gives   </p><p></p><p align="center">\LARGE\bigint_{\small0}^{\small\infty} </p><p align="left"></p><p align="center">and</p><p align="center">$$\large\int_{\small0}^{\small\infty}$   gives 


iota (lower case greek letter)

$$\iota$ gives \iota$$
