Many new users don't know how to use $\LaTeX$. Generally, if they write a mathematically-heavy post that needs $\LaTeX$ but doesn't have it, another user will either edit the post, show them to a page in the help center detailing how to use it, or, hopefully, both.

The issue is, we don't have that page.

There's one on Physics, as well as Mathematics. Why don't we have one? It seems just as necessary.

It does seem like a good idea. I will see what I can do.

In the meantime, please use those references as well as these:

  • $\begingroup$ Thanks. I saw that Worldbuilding post (and contributed quite a lot to starting it!). We don't need something that detailed, do we? The reason we set that up was because many people on Wolrdbuilding aren't too science/math oriented and are more likely to be unfamiliar with it. $\endgroup$
