Maths Formula Test

[tex]\Large f(x)=\int_{-\infty}^x e^{-t^2}dt[/tex]

Just testing that a funky new plugin to render maths formulae is working :)

Couldn't resist squeezing in another example:

[tex]\sum_{r=1}^{n}r=\frac12 n(n+1)[/tex]

  1. Hello. This is pretty cool, how would someone like me go about doing that? SJ

  2. Latex and funky.... in the same post?! ;-)

  3. Hmm... it does rather stretch the meaning of "funky" doesn't it?

    The plugin is here:

    To make it work I had to comment out the require Snoopy line in the plugin script.

  4. Hi Jonesieboy. Looks great but is snoopy not a black and white dog (Translated: you lost me when you started talking about snoopy lines in plugin scripts). We need to have a serious chat at some point so you can bring me up to speed.

    Cheers dude

    I like the sound of latex!

  5. Hi Craig. I'm talking to David Gilmour about setting this up for exc-el blogs. Getting it working for comments may be a bit trickier. Meanwhile, you'll be wanting to mug up on LaTEX markup - here's a good place to start:

    Unfortunately it doesn't work in comment - hey I just fixed it so it does!  Man, being a geek is so useful!
    [tex]e^x=\sum_{n=0}^\infty\frac{x^n}{n!}[/tex]

  6. Thanks for the link Robert. Very Useful. I'm just getting into my laTEX and it's time for bed unfortunately. See you tomorrow.

  8. According to the typographical pedants who wrote the specification, it should be typed as [tex]\LaTeX [/tex] or LaTeX in ordinary text. Nice though

  9. Phew - I've finally found out why plus signs were getting chomped - it was to do with the fancy comment posting done by this theme - 3K2. Once I disabled it, everything worked fine. As a final test:

    [tex]\frac{5x^2+3x+2}{7x^3+4}[/tex]
