Hi.

I'm not so good with english so I just question it: why there is not a way to compute formulae in this physics forum? :)

What do you mean "compute formulae"? As in finding solutions to an equation?

This is a FORUM, not a mathematical software.

Heres a way to compute formulae for free (outside PF); Maxima, FreeMat, etc, etc.

Sorry for the misleading.
For "compute formulas" i mean an editor that allows to write formulas in a more elegant way, i.e. x instead of x^2, and so on...

There is! It's called LaTEX!

PF supports LATEX typesetting. If you carefully look around you will find this sticky thread in this subforum itself.
