OK, that didn't work. I am trying to figure out how to do all the other math symbols. The above works at another forum, and I was guessing that it applies generally.
Does anyone know if there is an online instruction manual on how to do math symbols here? I saw the list of Greek letters, but I'm looking for stuff like partial derivative signs and whatnot. I saw that ObsessiveMathsFreak did some pretty integral signs in one of his posts, but now I can't find it.
Does anyone know anything about this?
∫ – & int ;
∂ – & part ;
∇ – & nabla ;
≈ – & asymp ;
≡ – & equiv ;
± – & plusmn ;
√ – & radic ;
Thanks ben, I'll add those to the list. I also made the list easier to read and less confusing.
and where is the list? Is there a thread that explains how to do math symbols here?
Ah, I see. Go to the smiley menu and click "get more". You will see everything PF has to offer.
I consider http://www.chaos.org.uk/~eddy/bits/chars.html to be one of the best resources on this subject.
That is a good reference, thanks.
Why do so many symbols on the above site appear as "boxes" on my computer?
i would like to suggest something..
how about an EQUATION EDITOR in Physics Forums? just a thought... :)
When all the major browsers support MathML, that would make a fine addition.
Separate names with a comma.
