| This page shows how to define macros in your configuration, or as part
| of the body of the page itself.
<script type="text/x-mathjax-config">
TeX: {
Macros: {
RR: '{\\bf R}', // a simple string replacement
bold: ['\\boldsymbol{#1}',1] // this macro has one parameter
<script type="text/javascript" src="../MathJax.js?config=TeX-AMS_HTML-full"></script>
| Here we use a math block that contains nothing but definitions in
| standard TeX format. It is enclosed in a DIV that doesn't display, so
| that there are no extra spaces generated by having the extra
| mathematics in the text.
| The first macro makes it easy to display vectors using \<x,y,z>
| the second uses \newcommand to create a macro
<div style="display:none">
This page uses two different methods to define macros: either putting them
in JavaScript notation in the MathJax configuration, or in TeX notation in
the body of the document.
<p>Some math that used the definitions:
f\colon\RR\to\RR^3 \hbox{ by } f(t)=\< t+1,{1\over 1+t^2}, \sqrt{t^2+1} >
\{\,z\in\CC \mid z^2 = \bold{\alpha}\,\}
