The PreTeXt Guide

Section 4.9 Mathematics

As mentioned in the overview, Section 3.6, we use syntax for mathematics. In order to allow for quality display in HTML, and other electronic formats, this limits us to the subset of supported by the very capable MathJax 4  Javascript library. Generally this looks like the amsmath package maintained by the American Mathematical Society at their AMS-LaTeX page 5 . For a complete and precise list of what MathJax supports, see MathJax’s Supported / commands 6 . Once you have digested this more general section, be sure to also consult Section 4.10 for some very specific suggestions.
