Rendering LaTeX

  1. Jan 22, 2012 #1
    Is there any kind of reader where I can enter the formulas such as "x\left(\Psi^{*}\frac{\partial\Psi}{\partial x}-\frac{\partial\Psi^{*}}{\partial x}\Psi \right)\right|^{+\infty}_{-\infty} = 0?" described above and have it in shown in a clean way please?

    If the markup is properly formed, your browser should render it automatically if you have Javascript enabled. The reason this particular expression didn't render was because of mismatched \left and \right tags. I added the missing \left. so you should see the expression rendered nicely below.

    $$\left.x \left( \Psi^* \frac{\partial\Psi}{\partial x} - \frac{\partial\Psi^*}{\partial x} \Psi \right) \right|^{+\infty}_{-\infty} = 0$$

    On a side note, please don't resurrect old threads for an unrelated question. I broke off your post to make a new thread in the proper forum.
