This question already has an answer here:

I suppose the question is pretty self explanatory.

I can think of a plethora of examples (discussing mathematical algorithms: applied math: analysis of a problem, etc...) where math formatting would be helpful.

And sites such as math.stackexchange and cs theory.stackexchange support it.

So why not stack overflow?
