## 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. $$ a=b+c $$

## subscript- The command character "_" triggers subscription of the following expression(s).
- For more than one subscripted character put them in braces {...}.
- Use font sizing commands for appropriate sizing.
__Ex.:__$$x_1$$ gives
__Ex.:__$$a_{m+2n}$$ gives
__Ex. (with specific sizing):__$$x_{\small1}=a_{\small{m+2n}}$$ gives
- Combine subscripting with superscripting (command character "^").
Syntax: Expr_{subExpr}^{supExpr}. __Ex.:__$$A_{\small{i,j,k}}^{\small{-n+2}}$$ gives

## superscript- The command character "^" triggers superscription of the following expression(s).
- For more than one superscripted character put them in braces {...}.
- Use font sizing commands for appropriate sizing.
__Ex.:__$$x^2$$ gives
__Ex.:__$$a^{m+2n}$$ gives
__Ex. (with specific sizing):__$$x^{\small2}=a^{\small{m+2n}}$$ gives
- Combine superscripting with subscripting (command character "_").
Syntax: Expr_{subExpr}^{supExpr}. __Ex.:__$$A_{\small{i,j,k}}^{\small{-n+2}}$$ gives
