Awesome Mathematical Notation Design

Awesome

While the history of mathematical notation dates back thousands of years, many of the symbols we are familiar with were introduced in the 16th–17th century. Since then, the number of advanced mathematical symbols has increased significantly.

Today, the majority of mathematical notation is digitally communicated in LaTeX, a popular mathematical typesetting system that produces static output. But sometimes mathematical notation can be hard to learn, hard to remember, and drag a reader into the details while preventing the communication of some higher-level idea. Can we do better?

Below is list of links of techniques to help enhance mathematical notation, for example, leveraging color, layout, annotations, Gestalt principles, or interactivity.
