MathJax Documentation

Documentation Status

Beautiful math in all browsers.

MathJax is an open-source JavaScript display engine for LaTeX, MathML, and AsciiMath notation that works in all modern browsers. It was designed with the goal of consolidating the recent advances in web technologies into a single, definitive, math-on-the-web platform supporting the major browsers and operating systems. It requires no setup on the part of the user (no plugins to download or software to install), so the page author can write web documents that include mathematics and be confident that users will be able to view it naturally and easily. Simply include MathJax and some mathematics in a web page, and MathJax does the rest.

See or for additional details.

Beautiful documentation.

The MathJax installation and usage documentation is available in this repository. The documents are also available on the MathJax web site on line at Please help us improve the documentation! You can use the editor feature on github to to simplify this.
