Short LaTeX Helper

\LaTeX is a common and powerful language for academic study. I would give my sincere thankfulness to my friend Chendi Huang, who leads me to the world of LaTeX and the world of mathematics.

WordPress has the ability to insert LaTeX math code (e.g. \int_{-\infty}^{\infty} e^{-\pi x^2} dx=1) into both posts and comments. The format for this is “$latex [Your LaTeX code]$” (without typing the square brackets).  Note that LaTeX macros and environments are not supported, similarly, double dollar signs $$ do not create LaTeX displays (one can use \displaystyle to get an approximation of these displays, though.)  Also, line breaks are not allowed within a LaTeX code.
