  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

I have checked the Mathematics Stack Exchange site, and have noticed equation syntax on the questions. Is there a guide or link of how to write these formulas?

Probably, these links might help you.


LaTeX/Advanced Mathematics

In the above links, the equations are embedded within \begin{equation} and \end{equation}, you just have to replace those with double dollar signs $$.

By the way, Math.SE uses MathJax, which uses LaTeX to formulate equations.

Screenshot from Math.SE to show some sample equations:

This is better than the answers I found on the Math.SE meta. Nice job with the examples. – Bill the Lizard Aug 5 '11 at 1:11
