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.

C

cdot (multiplication)

$$a\cdot~b$ gives a\cdot~b$$

chi (lower case greek letter)

$$\chi$ gives \chi$$

constants

  • Numbers in formulas are interpreted as constants and they are rendered in non-italic roman font face, which is a widely used convention.
  • Following this convention, variables are shown in italic.
  • Exp.: $$f(x)=3a+x$ gives</li></ul><p style="text-align:center;">f(x)=3a+x$$


contour integral

  • 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 the contour integral symbol:

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

\oint_{0}^{\infty}

  • Use font size commands for a nicer picture:

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

\large\oint_{\small0}^{\small\infty}


coproduct

  • 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.
  • Note: mimeTeX seems currently only to support the \bigcoprod command.
  • Syntax for coproduct symbol:

$$\bigcoprod_{i=k}^{n}$   gives   </p><p align="center">\bigcoprod_{i=k}^{n} </p><ul><li><div align="left">Use font size commands for a nicer picture:</div></li></ul><p align="left"></p><p align="center">$$\LARGE\bigcoprod_{\small{i=k}}^{\small~n}$   gives  

\LARGE\bigcoprod_{\small{i=k}}^{\small~n}
