## 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.

### \

#### \normalsize

• Everthing following the \normalsize command will be output in the smallest predefined font size until the system encounters another font size command.
• \normalsize is the default font size, i.e. the size automatically chosen if there is no font size command
• Ex.: $$\normalsize~3x$$ gives $\normalsize~3x$

• inserts a double space of current character set size
• Ex.: $$a\qquad~b$$ gives $a\qquad~b$

• inserts a space of current character set size
• Ex.: $$a\quad~b$$ gives $a\quad~b$

#### \small

• \small
• Ex.: $$\small~3x$$ gives $\small~3x$

#### \tiny

• Everthing following the \tiny command will be output in the smallest predefined font size until the system encounters another font size command.
• Ex.: $$\tiny~3x$$ gives $\tiny~3x$

### A

#### absolute font sizes (overview)

 Absolute Font Sizes Command Example Result \tiny $$\tiny 3x$$ $\tiny 3x$ \small $$\small 3x$$ $\small 3x$ \normalsize (default) $$\normalsize 3x$$ or just $$3x$$ $\normalsize 3x$ \large $$\large 3x$$ $\large 3x$ \Large $$\Large 3x$$ $\Large 3x$ \LARGE $$\LARGE 3x$$ $\LARGE 3x$ \huge and \Huge are not supported by the mimeTeX filter

#### alpha (lower case greek letter)

$$\alpha$$ gives $\alpha$

#### angle bracket

• Syntax: \left<...\right>
• Ex.: $$\left<f,g\right>$$ gives

$\left$

#### arithmetic operations

• Type arithmetic operations and "=" as usual.
• Exp.: $$f(x)=x-2b+(3a/c)$$ gives

$f(x)=x-2b+(3a/c)$

• Ex.: $$$\begin{array}a_{\fs{0}1}\fs{3},&a_{\fs{0}2}\fs{3},&a_{\fs{0}3}\end{array}$$$ gives
$(\begin{array}a_{\fs{0}1}\fs{3},&a_{\fs{0}2}\fs{3},&a_{\fs{0}3}\end{array})$
