Forum feature: LaTeX equations!

  • This forum supports \LaTeX equations between $dollar signs$. The default LaTeX style is the “inline” style which looks like \sum_{k=0}^n {n \choose k} = 2^n , in text this is
$ \sum_{k=0}^n {n \choose k} = 2^n $
  • However, if you start your equation with the command \displaystyle, you can get the prettier, more expanded version which looks like: \displaystyle \sum_{k=0}^n {n \choose k} = 2^n
$ \displaystyle \sum_{k=0}^n {n \choose k} = 2^n $

Forum feature: YUML diagrams!

YUML diagrams allow making nice little graphs within your posts. They have an idiosyncratic but fairly simple markup language.


[foo{bg:cornsilk}] -- [baz]
[foo] -> [bar{bg:orange}]
[baz] -.-> [qux]
[quux] --label-> [bar]
