This is an attempt to get convenient math syntax in HaTeX.
The idea is to combine these features:
- Full access to the math-typesetting power of LaTeX. It should be possible to express any formula that might be found in a typical mathematics or physics journal article. This should also include expression which are not quite well-defined from a programming point of view, but are clear to the intended audience.
- Idiomatic Haskell syntax. Who wants to bother with unreadable expressions involving either hundreds of double-backslashes or extra syntax overhead in wrapping them explicitly into HaTeX? Ideally, one would write expressions as if only meaning Haskell to calculate them, but get the result back as a full pretty-printing LaTeX math string. And the actual calculated result as well, if possible!
