# Forum Features!

## 1. 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 $$on it’s own beginning and teminating line like, $$
\sum_{k=0}^n {n \choose k} = 2^n



it looks like this

\sum_{k=0}^n {n \choose k} = 2^n

## 2. Graphviz diagrams

See the documentation for a list of examples to build your graph.

[graphviz engine=dot]
digraph {
concentrate=true;
a[color=red, style=filled, fillcolor=pink];
b[shape=diamond];
a -> b;
b -> c;
c -> a;
d -> c;
e -> c;
e -> a;
a -> e;
}
[/graphviz]


## 3. YUML diagrams

YUML diagrams allow making nice little graphs within your posts.

They have an idiosyncratic but fairly simple markup language.

Example:

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

[yuml]
[Vote Message|+Source hash;-Source height;+Target hash;-Target height|+Withdraw();+Last_commit]
[/yuml]


## 4. Images!

Unsurprisingly, we also support images.
