My Math Forum Latex?

 LaTex Help Help with LaTex and writing math equations

 December 4th, 2006, 11:46 AM #1 Senior Member   Joined: Dec 2006 Posts: 1,111 Thanks: 0 Latex? Is there any way to use Latex in this forum? It would greatly mitigate the problems of showing an equation, which we are currently doing by using calculator notation and improvised conglomerations of symbols and words. It would help if we had a way to express ideas in mathematical notation.

Currently my Web Host does not allow to run cgi scripts on the server (only python) and I do not have shell access. Therefore, unless I translate my Latex tool into python (which I would be unable to do, since I do not know this language), I cannot install it on the server. However, once the forums are a little more populated, I will switch to another Web Host and will turn Latex on. J.

Some LaTeX-ing programs have fairly ugly output.

Then we could get a feel for who uses it and who doesn't, and who thinks it would be helpful to have sometime in the future.

Besides, if someone doesn't like Latex, he or she wouldn't use it. I am for now waiting for a while before I change my Web Host ... if someone has a way to install Latex without cgi scripts and shell access, I am willing to try though ...

You can get some ideas on here if you like: http://www.artofproblemsolving.com/Forum/ They have a LaTeX section and are quite nice.

In the meanwhile we could use smilies for math symbols.

Something like this: and this
