Re: How to make nested expressions look better in LaTeXMathsIsFun, can you enable the cfrac command? "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..." #3 20080710 08:07:58
Re: How to make nested expressions look better in LaTeXIf I knew how ... I better start Googling "cfrac", hey? "The physicists defer only to mathematicians, and the mathematicians defer only to God ..."  Leon M. Lederman #4 20080710 13:42:38
Re: How to make nested expressions look better in LaTeXAh, I thought we could only use latex command that you "approve" (or something of the sort). It should be a standard command... not sure why it doesn't work. "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..." #5 20080710 15:40:06
Re: How to make nested expressions look better in LaTeXExamples of "amsmath package" commands: For some reason cfrac doesn't work ... why? "The physicists defer only to mathematicians, and the mathematicians defer only to God ..."  Leon M. Lederman #6 20080710 20:17:18
Re: How to make nested expressions look better in LaTeXYou don’t need \cfrac. Guess what. I just discovered \dfrac! Does that have the same visual effect as \cfrac? Last edited by JaneFairfax (20080710 20:24:05) #7 20080710 21:20:55
Re: How to make nested expressions look better in LaTeXIt looks fine to me. And it gets me off the hook "The physicists defer only to mathematicians, and the mathematicians defer only to God ..."  Leon M. Lederman #8 20080711 02:00:59
Re: How to make nested expressions look better in LaTeX\dfrac is the display style version of \frac. It is equivalent to doing: "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..." #9 20080711 08:30:20
Re: How to make nested expressions look better in LaTeXAmazing ... and I don't know why. I just installed the package that was available and it does what it does. "The physicists defer only to mathematicians, and the mathematicians defer only to God ..."  Leon M. Lederman #10 20090715 06:01:56
Re: How to make nested expressions look better in LaTeXI am working on a LaTeX project in which I need a weird new symbol called a 'mark' or 'cross'. See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Laws_of_Form to see how it looks and how it is used (hit the link for section 5.5.2 Sentential logic). #11 20090715 10:09:37
Re: How to make nested expressions look better in LaTeXI use \dfrac in complex fractions . . . and \tfrac for smaller fractions . . . . . Someone showed me how to insert spaces in an array. A matrix with fractions often looks very crowded: \begin{pmatrix} \frac{1}{4} & \frac{3}{4} \\ \frac{2}{3} & \frac{1}{3} \end{pmatrix} . \begin{pmatrix} \frac{1}{4} & \frac{3}{4} \\ \\[3mm] \frac{2}{3} & \frac{1}{3} \end{pmatrix} Evidently the \\ adds another line feed . . and the [3mm] makes it "back up" 3 mm. I've taken an array like this: . . and morphed it into this: . . . #12 20090716 00:47:19

Re: How to make nested expressions look better in LaTeXNice, how was it done? 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. #16 20090722 09:46:06
