# Latex Alignment Problem

 P: 2 Hi guys, I want to write up some math and have the following code: \begin{align} L_{A}(s)&=V(A,0)-V(A,s) \\ &=\int_{t=A}^{T(A)+A-\alpha S_{A}}e^{-r(t-A)}W_{t}dt - \int_{t=A}^{T(A)+A-\alpha (S_{A}+s)}e^{-r(t-A)}W_{t}dt \\ &=\int^{T(A)+A-\alpha S_{A}}_{T(A)+A-\alpha(S_{A}+s)}e^{-r(t-A)W_{t}dt} \end{align} Now using Physics Forum's inbuilt Latex thingy the following appears: \begin{align*} L_{A}(s)&=V(A,0)-V(A,s) \\ &=\int_{t=A}^{T(A)+A-\alpha S_{A}}e^{-r(t-A)}W_{t}dt - \int_{t=A}^{T(A)+A-\alpha (S_{A}+s)}e^{-r(t-A)}W_{t}dt \\ &=\int^{T(A)+A-\alpha S_{A}}_{T(A)+A-\alpha(S_{A}+s)}e^{-r(t-A)W_{t}dt} \end{align*} However, when I try to compile this using my own Latex compiler, I get the following error message: It says that the "align" doesn't work! Are there any computer experts who know what I am doing wrong??
 P: 235 The "align" environment is provided by the AMS-LaTeX package and can be activated by including the line \usepackage{amsmath} somewhere in the preamble of your document. I believe the LaTeX functionality of Physics Forums enables AMS-LaTeX by default, which is why the "align" environment is working correctly on Physics Forums but is not working in your document.
