Guide to displaying mathematics

Options for including mathematics on your website include:

The Nift documentation covers how to display $\LaTeX$ on your websites using MathJax. Repeating the information on this page, using MathJax on your site is as simple as adding the following code to the head of each page:

							<!-- uses MathJax CDC for LaTeX support
								 see for more info -->
							<script type="text/x-mathjax-config">
									extensions: ["tex2jax.js"],
									jax: ["input/TeX", "output/HTML-CSS"],
										inlineMath: [['$','$'], ['\\(','\\)']],
										displayMath: [ ['$$','$$'], ["\\[","\\]"] ],
										processEscapes: true
									"HTML-CSS": { availableFonts: ["MathJax TeX"] }
							<script type="text/javascript" 

You should then be able to paste $\LaTeX$ equations straight into content files. both \$..\$ and /(../) work for inline equations, and both \$\$..\$\$ and /[../] work for displayed equations. Eg. When \(a \ne 0\), there are two solutions to \(ax^2 + bx + c = 0\) and they are: \[x = \frac{-b \pm \sqrt{b^2-4ac}}{2a}\]

If you want to insert a dollar sign on a page, as opposed to opening/closing an inline equation, use \\\$ and MathJax will escape the character.

Note: if you are opening a page locally and are not connected to the internet then MathJax will not load, you will simply see the unprocessed LaTeX equations.
