LatexCan anyone help me in writing a matrix in latex? Looking up sources, I can find ways to do it, but they don't seem to work on this forum. For example, just display the matrix: "In the real world, this would be a problem. But in mathematics, we can just define a place where this problem doesn't exist. So we'll go ahead and do that now..." #2 20060404 06:11:07
Re: LatexIt seems to me that you can't do matrices with whatever we're runnig here.. At all.. Some documentation/readme would be useful though.. Last edited by Patrick (20060404 06:11:43) #6 20060404 19:55:01
Re: LatexI managed to do this: using: Code:[math]\begin{array}{ccc}1,2,3\\4,5,6\\7,8,9\end{array}[/math] But I I think the forum software is changing the latex code *before* formatting it, and this is what is making it hard to format the latex properly.

Re: LatexGeorge, try yours out. I believe you will find it doesn't work to have latex on multiple lines. See the problem there? You want everything in a matrix to get lined up.

Re: LatexIt is a little tricky. You see, the first and most important thing is to "sanitize" the text in the message: to remove or alter characters that could be part of a program (which someone bad may want to run on the forum). And this necessary first step alters *some* LaTeX code (like the &). "The physicists defer only to mathematicians, and the mathematicians defer only to God ..."  Leon M.
