Math Expressions

Individual pages can opt-in to supporting mathematical notation using MathJax, so that you can write expressions with LaTeX syntax, either inline or as a block.

Processing a page with MathJax can take a few seconds, so it is not enabled by default on all pages.If you want to use MathJax, you must enable it in the front matter of your page (i.e. add "mathjax" to extensions:

---
extensions: ["mathjax"]
---


In your page content, math expressions are delineated by  tags before and after the expression.

Block equation example
