Re: LaTeX  A Crash CourseDoes anyone know how to put square roots in the numerator of a fraction in latex? I keep getting an error message. So for example, how would I write the square root of two over six? #52 20080416 09:50:46
Re: LaTeX  A Crash CourseThe same way you'd put square root signs anywhere else. √2/6 is made by: Why did the vector cross the road? It wanted to be normal. #54 20080525 18:20:00
Re: LaTeX  A Crash CourseToday I started learning Latex on Texmaker (for Linux). The same code that produces this nice looking limit on this website (from Dross' tutorial) comes out badly in my dvi files. but instead, the is to the right of lim , rather than directly under. Why this variation from system to system? How can I get mine to look correct in my documents? Thanks for your reply. edit: A partial answer to my own question is to use the \displaystyle command. I still don't completely understand this command. Conversely, if I want to be sure that the limit is displayed to the right, rather than under, I can use the \nolimit command Last edited by Maracuya (20080526 02:29:13) #55 20080525 19:26:34
Re: LaTeX  A Crash CourseHow do I put Double integration over a region D, the code \iint doesn't seem to work? Last edited by Dragonshade (20080525 19:27:14) #56 20080526 09:41:35
Re: LaTeX  A Crash CourseD should have been defined before the integral is given, and if this is the case, then a single integral sign implies integration of the region, whatever dimension it may be. If this is not the case, it is typical to place the D on the inner most integral sign: "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..." #59 20081005 23:47:11

Re: LaTeX  A Crash Course
LaTeX is a typesetting language used for writing (math) documents. It is used universally to write papers for publication in almost any field of study, as well as entire books. "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..." #67 20090701 05:30:19

Re: LaTeX  A Crash CourseHi quittyqat; Last edited by bobbym (20090807 06:50:59) In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it. All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof. #72 20100128 09:22:52
