TeX formatting reference sheet

Here is a basic list of formatting tips for use on Philica. Enclose these codes between tags: so, for example, type [tex]y=x^2[/tex] to produce Anything not covered below can be found online, for example on John Forkosh’s website and in the mathematic formulae section of this page.

Basic formatting

CodeYou typeYou get
^ = superscript[tex]y=x^2[/tex]
_ = subscript[tex]y=x_i[/tex]
^ and _ together[tex]y=x_i^2[/tex]
\frac{}{}[tex]y=\frac{1}{x}[/tex]
\left( and \right)[tex]y=\left(\frac{1-x}{x-1}\right)[/tex]
\sum{}[tex]y=\sum{x_i}[/tex]
\sum{} with limits[tex]y=\sum_1^k{x_i}[/tex]
\prod{}[tex]y=\prod{x_i}[/tex]
\int{}[tex]y=\int{x_i}[/tex]
\int{} with limits[tex]y=\int_{-\infty}^\infty{x_i}[/tex]
