Update on MathJax

Sun Nov 20, 2011

MathJax has come a long way since I last looked at it. There is now a CDN hosting the js files, which makes calling it really really easy. It’s being adopted by GiHub for their wiki engine.

Using it with markdown can cause a few bumps, but there seems to be a bunch of ways around this:

  • [mathjax in markdown][mim] using some mathjax configuration and custom css
  • [amazing implimentation][ai] in a notetaking app
  • [php, mathjax and wordpress][phpm]

Writing a block of %%\LaTeX%% like this

\dot{x} & = \sigma(y-x) \\
\dot{y} & = \rho x - y - xz \\
\dot{z} & = -\beta z + xy

will render like this

$$ \begin{aligned} \dot{x} & = \sigma(y-x) \
\dot{y} & = \rho x - y - xz \
\dot{z} & = -\beta z + xy \end{aligned} $$
