    What is the math language you guys use on here?

    Math language or format, excuse me for my ignorance on this matter. Also, the formatting you guys use, is this universal through all forums and calculations you make online? Are there any guidelines available for me to understand and to be able to use this format?

    you probably are referring to LaTex.

    It's what let's us write stuff like

    $\displaystyle{\int_C \sum_{k=0}^\infty}e^{i2\pi \theta}$

    This might help

    You can start to learn it very easily by replying with quote to posts that contain LaTeX. The original code will display in the screen where you write your reply.

    Once you start to use it, you must click on go advanced to be sure you made no formatting mistakes. LaTeX is not hard to learn, but it is super fussy and very easy to make mistakes.
