**How do I typeset functions, such as max, det, that Math does not know about?**

*Math* has a number of standard functions built-in, such as
cos, log etc.

These functions are typeset in an upright shape according to typographical traditions.

To typeset other functions this way you can simply preceed the
function with** func**. Example:

- To typeset max(
*a,b*) you should enter**func max(a,b)**.
