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.: $$\left<f,g\right>$ gives </li></ul><p align="center">\left<f,g\right>$$

arithmetic operations

  • Type arithmetic operations and "=" as usual.
  • Exp.: $$f(x)=x-2b+(3a/c)$ gives</li></ul><p style="text-align:center;">f(x)=x-2b+(3a/c)$$

    • See also keyword "fraction" for extended capabilities.


  • Syntax for an n-dimensional array:
  • Ex.: $$\begin{array}a_{\fs{0}1}\fs{3},&a_{\fs{0}2}\fs{3},&a_{\fs{0}3}\end{array}$ gives</li></ul><p align="center">(\begin{array}a_{\fs{0}1}\fs{3},&a_{\fs{0}2}\fs{3},&a_{\fs{0}3}\end{array})$$
