What is Mathjax: Definition and 14 Discussions

MathJax is a cross-browser JavaScript library that displays mathematical notation in web browsers, using MathML, LaTeX and ASCIIMathML markup. MathJax is released as open-source software under the Apache License.
The MathJax project started in 2009 as the successor to an earlier JavaScript mathematics formatting library, jsMath, and is managed by the American Mathematical Society. The project was founded by the American Mathematical Society, Design Science, and the Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics and is supported by numerous sponsors such as the American Institute of Physics and Stack Exchange.MathJax is used by web sites including arXiv, Elsevier's ScienceDirect, MathSciNet, n-category cafe, MathOverflow, Wikipedia (on the backend), Scholarpedia, Project Euclid journals, IEEEXplore, Publons, Coursera, and the All-Russian Mathematical Portal.

    LaTeX Trying to write in LaTex and MathJax not picking up

    I'm attempting to use latex to write a question in the physics forum. However, when I click preview to check if the formatting is correct it doesn't reformat to display in its latex form, rather it stays in plain text. Any suggestions on what I may be doing wrong? I've posted the screenshots...

    Downloading & Installing STIX Fonts for MathJax

    Hello, Every website that I go on that has MathJax support displays math in a font that almost looks like the default Computer Modern ##\LaTeX## font. The following is taken from Math Stack Exchange: I heard that MathJax usually looks for the STIX font located on your computer, and if it does...

    LaTeX Latex rendering (another thread)

    In post #4 of this thread the latex engine seems to go haywire halfway through a 'display math' section delimited by double dollars. The same code, with the PF-specific breakouts for in-line tex converted to latex standards, works perfectly in my offline latex engine. Further, to my surprise...

    MHB RH and LH Double-Quotes in MathJax

    Anyone know how to do handed double-quotes in Mathjax? I know how to do it in normal $\LaTeX$, but the code $$\frac{d}{dx}\,f(x)\;\text{``is one notation''}$$ yields $$\frac{d}{dx}\,f(x)\;\text{``is one notation''}$$ So that doesn't quite work like it normally does in $\LaTeX$. The...
