Experiments in Math Formatting

I’m really excited to be able to easily integrate $\LaTeX$ code into web pages. The Hugo system combined with Markdown is really working out well.

Here is my first test. I’m going to just try a simple superscript experiment. I’m having problems with the superscripts getting truncated at their tops.

Here is the inline expression using dollar signs and MathJax syntax: $x ^{( y^2 + z^{x ^{( y^2 + z^3)}})}$

Here is the same expression that is formatted blocked with double dollar delimiters: $$x ^{( y^2 + z^{x ^{( y^2 + z^3)}})}$$.

Here is the same expression that is formatted inline with dollar delimiters and backquotes: \$x ^{( y^2 + z^{x ^{( y^2 + z^3)}})}\$.

Here is the same expression that is formatted inline within a blockquote:

$x ^{( y^2 + z^{x ^{( y^2 + z^3)}})}$

Here is the same expression that is formatted blocked within a blockquote:

$$x ^{( y^2 + z^{x ^{( y^2 + z^3)}})}$$

And here is the double-dollar math block within a <div> block. The use of <div> appears to be necessary to use the $\LaTeX$ align constructs. When using align (and perhaps any \begin constructs), the use of  is not necessary.

Here is some $\LaTeX$ code without double-dollar delimiters around a \begin-delimited block.

\begin{aligned} \nabla \times \vec{\mathbf{B}} -, \frac1c, \frac{\partial\vec{\mathbf{E}}}{\partial t} & = \frac{4\pi}{c}\vec{\mathbf{j}} \ \nabla \cdot \vec{\mathbf{E}} & = 4 \pi \rho \ \end{aligned}

\begin{aligned} \nabla \times \vec{\mathbf{E}}, +, \frac1c, \frac{\partial\vec{\mathbf{B}}}{\partial t} & = \vec{\mathbf{0}} \ \end{aligned}

\begin{aligned} \nabla \cdot \vec{\mathbf{B}} & = 0 \end{aligned}
