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? :)

Re: Formulae

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

This is a FORUM, not a mathematical software.

For "compute formulas" i mean an editor that allows to write formulas in a more elegant way, i.e. x² 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.

oh good! My question rises because every topic i have seen is written without latex.
I know latex, so i will use that from now on
thanks
