LaTeX and other cool additions

September 13th, 2008 No comments

I just installed a cool LaTeX addon. It’s called LaTeX for WordPress. What is it good for you may ask?

Well I’m Physicist so I need to write formulas. And LaTeX is a really good typesetting engine with native math support.

For example if I write

\mathrm{Ind}_\gamma (a) = \frac{1}{2\pi\mathrm{i}} \int_\gamma \mathrm{d}z \frac{1}{z-a}

it will look the following way: \mathrm{Ind}_\gamma (a) = \frac{1}{2\pi\mathrm{i}} \int_\gamma \mathrm{d}z \frac{1}{z-a} (That queer formula for example is the Winding Number of a closed curve)
Above you may have seen the other new addition: Syntax highlighting!
How you know I’m also a passionated lua coder. And it’s much more fun to have example codes highlighted.
