Re: LaTeX - A Crash Course

Hello hi2

Welcome to the forum!

What is cool? LaTeX? I agree.It is a very powerful tool for helping someone understand mathematics.

Do you know how to use LaTeX?

Re: LaTeX - A Crash Course

3 things.....

1:


O_O is it just me, or is it when you copy LaTeX into a Microsoft Word "blank equation", it turns into fancy math automatically?

2: THIS IS SO LUMPING FUN!!!!!

3. IM GETTING AN ACCOUNT HERE SOON! big_smile

..... also.....when you put certain opeations into Word, like a n-ary sum, it keeps the "{" & "}" ......I don't know why......but still its creepy how it turns into math when you copy it..........

∞ exists as the limit of x/0, where x can be any value that exists. Unfortunately, x/0 doesn't exist in nature, so ∞ doesn't either. That's why its always so elusive and mystifying. Personally? I believe it was 0's brother that never was born into the universe of commonly used math.

Re: LaTeX - A Crash Course

Did you know you can make new symbols from the existing ones?

I did. I've seen it used for defining "hbar".

Re: LaTeX - A Crash Course

Hi anonimnystefy,

That's good to know.
Do you use LaTeX instead of word processors?


Hi Nehushtan,

That's funny!

Re: LaTeX - A Crash Course

Okay.
Even with no math, it produces superior layout compared to word processors. It has mighty capability with graphics as well.

Re: LaTeX - A Crash Course

That is true, but I rarely, if ever, need to type non-math documents.
