WordPress in LaTeX glory

Speaking of LaTeX, if you, like us, want to write LaTeX math code in your blog, you should have a look at the LaTeX WP plugin.

The output will become something like this: (1 + (\frac{y}{a})^2)^{\frac{1}{2}} = 1 + \frac{1}{2}(\frac{y}{a})^2 + \ldots

Or maybe like this: f(x) = \sum_{n=0}^\infty \frac{f^{(n)}(0)}{n!}x^n = 1 + nx +  \frac{n(n-1)}{2}x^2 + \ldots

These are not as pretty as real \LaTeX output, but they sure are prettier than writing math the hard way:

f(x) = \sum_{n=0}^\infty \frac{f^{(n)}(0)}{n!}x^n = ...

I’m looking forward to be serving you with more math-stuff in the future!

LaTeX It!

This is going to my first post in this blog, and along with some other more technical posts, I will dual post it in my own blog over at dragly.org.

If you are using Thunderbird for e-mail and want to send mathematical formulas to your contacts, you should consider the LaTeX It! plugin or the Equations plugin. The former requires you to have LaTeX and ImageMagick installed, while Equations uses an external server to generate your images.
