LaTeX is a professional-grade general typesetting system that centers around very pleasing mathematical presentation. Mathematical expressions are written in a markup style somewhat similar to HTML.

To include a LaTeX graphic, simply type your LaTeX code between math bbcode tags.

**[math]enter code here[/math]**

For example, the code

HTML:

`[math]a^x_n[/math]`

**Mathematical LaTeX Examples**

[math]\frac{1}{2}[/math]

[math]R^a{}_{bcd}[/math]

[math]\nabla \times C[/math]

[math]\lambda_j = \mathbf{\lambda} \cdot \mathbf{e}_j[/math]

[math]v(t) = v_0 + \frac{1}{2} a t^2[/math]

[math]\gamma \equiv \frac{1}{\sqrt{1 - v^2/c^2}}[/math]

[math]e^x = \sum_{n=0}^\infty \frac{x^n}{n!} = \lim_{n\rightarrow\infty} (1+x/n)^n[/math]

[math]\iiint f(x,y,z)\,dx\,dy\,dz[/math]

[math]A \alpha B \beta \Gamma \gamma \Delta \delta \dots \Phi \phi X \chi \Psi \psi \Omega \omega[/math]

[math]\Gamma^l_{ki} = \frac{1}{2} g^{lj} (\partial_k g_{ij} + \partial_i g_{jk} - \partial_j g_{ki})[/math]

**Chemical LaTeX Examples**

*To explain the basics:*

[math]^{33}_{17}Cl^{16}\xrightarrow{n,n}~^{31}_{15}P^{16 }+~^4_2He^2[/math]_ is subscript

^ is superscript

{} are delimiters, to keep text together

~ is a space

[math]pH=pK_a+log\frac{[A^-]}{[HA]}[/math]

[math]V=\frac{k_2[E]_t

[math]6CO_2+6H_2O\xrightarrow{Light~Energy}C_6H_{12}O_6+ CO_2~~~\Delta G^\circ=+2870kJ/mol[/math]

*Click on each of the examples above to "learn by example."

Good luck and enjoy the system!
