Can I find all the constructions of Math in the selection window?

There are a few constructions without a corresponding template in the selection window:

 a oplus b a ominus b a otimes b a odot b a odivide b a wideslash b a widebslash b

In addition, if %symbol is a userdefined symbol you can use it as a unary or binary operator as follows:

• uoper %symbol a uses %symbol as a unary operator.
• a boper %symbol b uses %symbol as a binary operator.

 a << b a >> b a def b a transl b a transr b

 liminf f lim inf f limsub f lim sub f

In addition, if %symbol is a userdefined symbol you can use it as an operator as follows:

• oper %symbol a uses %symbol as an operator.

You can read more about this in I want to use a binary operator like union or otimes as a large operator like int or sum. How can I do that?

 lfloor a rfloor lceil a rceil

Since brackets have a grouping function they must always match and be correctly nested. For scalable brackets it is essential that left and right matches, but the brackets can be freely combined. Example:

• You can enter left ( a right [ to typeset (a[.

You can read more about single brackets in How can I get a left bracket without a right bracket?

In addition to the functions that Math knows, you can typeset other functions if you preceed the function name with func, such as func max. You can read more about this in How do I typeset functions such as max, det, that Math does not know about?

• nitalic a typesets a in upright shape (abbreviation for not italic).
• nbold a typesets a with normal weight (abbreviation for not bold).
• phantom a typesets a invisible.

The command color is used to change the color of a subformula, see How do I change the color of a subformula? for details.

A complete reference on the Math input language is being worked on.
