LaTeX Glossary


My.SUPA has been setup to allow maths to be written quickly using LaTeX notation. This can be included anywhere you see a text box in your course area -- including news or social forums, web pages and wikis. The format for entering LaTeX in My.SUPA is to wrap the code between two pairs of dollar signs. $$ a=b+c $$


If you are looking at this for the first time, please read the entries under 01 Getting Started for an overview. The list of entries may be viewed by categories or alphabetically.

Using LaTeX in My.SUPA

My.SUPA has been setup to allow maths to be written quickly using LaTeX notation. This can be included anywhere you see a text box in your course, in news or social forums, wikis or other course areas.

The format for entering LaTeX in My.SUPA is to wrap the code between two double dollar signs

eg. $$$a^2=b^2+c^2$$$ is automatically shown to others as a graphic element which appears as a^2=b^2+c^2.

See the following categories for more detailed information and examples:

02 Arithmetic expressions, sub-/superscripts, roots
03 Font Styles
04 Delimiters (parentheses, braces,...)
05 Spaces

06 Symbols
07 Relations
09 Structures


The formula is stored as LaTeX internally, and copes with most standard formulae. The underlying code can be edited repeatedly in text form. Others using the My.SUPA course will see the graphic version, and on hovering a mouse over the graphic may be the LaTeX code as alternate text popup. My.SUPA uses a full installation of teTeX package of LaTeX 2e (tetex-latex-2.0.2-22.0.1.EL4.10).
