# Include Math and Scientific symbols in your blog posts, powered by MathJax

20 Mar 2016

MathJax is a state of art JavaScript engine to display mathematics and scientifc symbols on a web page. hydeX includes MathJax support by default. hydeX is configured to support Tex and LaTeX notation to enter math and scientification content in a blog post.

Both inline and block renderings are supported.

### Inline content

To display inline content, use `$ ... $`

delimiters as shown below

```
When $a = f(x)$, there are two solutions to $ax^2 + bx + c = 0$ and they are
```

is rendered as

When $a = f(x)$, there are two solutions to $ax^2 + bx + c = 0$ and they are

### Block content

For block content use the `$$ ..... $$`

delimiters as shown below

```
$$
\begin{align*}
& \phi(x,y) = \phi \left(\sum_{i=1}^n x_ie_i, \sum_{j=1}^n y_je_j \right)
= \sum_{i=1}^n \sum_{j=1}^n x_i y_j \phi(e_i, e_j) = \\
& (x_1, \ldots, x_n) \left( \begin{array}{ccc}
\phi(e_1, e_1) & \cdots & \phi(e_1, e_n) \\
\vdots & \ddots & \vdots \\
\phi(e_n, e_1) & \cdots & \phi(e_n, e_n)
\end{array} \right)
\left( \begin{array}{c}
y_1 \\
\vdots \\
y_n
\end{array} \right)
\end{align*}
$$
```

is rendered as

### LaTeX Reference.

I found the below links to be excellent reference for LaTeX symbols and code
