Math Equation


mathjax: true

in Hexo's _config.yml.

In the post which you would like to use math equation, add mathjax: true in the front-matter. For example:

title: Test Math
date: 2016-04-05 14:16:00
categories: math
mathjax: true

The default math delimiters are $$...$$ and \\[...\\] for displayed mathematics, and $...$ and \\(...\\) for in-line mathematics.

However, if your post contains dollar signs ($), and they appear often in non-mathematical parts, in other words, you want to use $ as dollar sign not inline math delimiter, please add

mathjax2: true

in Hexo's _config.yml instead of mathjax: true. Correspondingly, add mathjax2: true to the front-matter of the post in which you would like to use math equation.

See the example.
