Learning TeX
My first attempt at TeX:\begin{equation}
\varphi = 1 + \cfrac{1}{1
+ \cfrac{1}{1
+ \cfrac{1}{1
+ \cfrac{1}{1 + \ddots
} } } }
\end{equation}Dang, this is easy! <0|ɸ|0>

Trying it here too: \begin{equation}x_1=x_0+vt+\frac{1}{2}at^2\end{equation}
And more text.

RE: Learning TeX
and how about (a^2+b_2) Does that work?

Thanks for the TeX Lesson

RE: Learning TeX
Hello,

How do I enter equations using TeX? Shouldn't it be as simple as

$$a=1$$

Thanks

+1 I don't know how to properly copy or insert Latex into forum posts.

Perhaps this could be described and added as a sticky to the top of this test forum?

RE: Learning TeX
Hint: If you see a posting with nifty TeX in it, and want to see how they did it, just click the Quote button, take a peek at the TeX code, then press Back on your browser. Sorta like learning programming by reading other people's programs, which I'll bet we've all done.

RE: Learning TeX
To view someone else's TeX code, you can also right-click on the math and choose to show the math as TeX commands.

$$\LaTeX$$ in general can be worth learning if you have reason to produce complicated documents with lots of cross-references, bibliography citations, index entries, figures, etc.

You may also use Daum which is both available online and as a Chrome add on.

$$E^2-p^2c^2=m^2c^4$$
$E^2-p^2c^2=m^2c^4$
$f(x)=\begin{cases} 0,\quad -1\le x<-0,5,\\ 1,\quad -0,5<x<0,5,\\ 0,\quad 0,5<x\le 1. \end{cases}$

Interesting this works here, but not some other places on the forum... Edit.. Ah, it did go haywire after editing again. $$test^{latex}$$

... Edit2 : Solved it relates to Quick Edit vs Full Edit functionality.

Maybe you put the TeX code as 'formatted code'?

It is the quickedit vs full edit thing. I assume it is only a refressing "error" as I do not see it correctly at first, but I assume that others do see it correctly since they just loaded the page.
