List
Where would one find a list of LaTex commands, which transforms into notations and symbols, on this website?

There's a few here:
LaTeX Symbols

By no means all, but it'll get you started. I think there may even be a link to a download of a much more complete list.

Thank you Unenlightened member. Your straightforward, direct help is appreciated.

Can you suggest where I can go to, to practice LaTex?

You can practice here: choose any message and write in LaTex whatever you want BUT do NOT send it, only preview it...

Thank you Tonio as I do need the practice.

I'm still doing testing on what I'm calling the hypermultigrade as I've found two cases where it works for the coefficients (up from one case from the last time I reported in). I have more testing to do which will take time and I'll have more to say in the future, on a new thread.

e^(i*pi)
You managed to create a thread but did not see the stickies at the top of this forum?

http://www.mathhelpforum.com/math-he...-tutorial.html - the attachment is a PDF showing the latex used on MHF

You may also click on anybody's latex to see the code. For example $$\lim_{n\to\infty} \left(1+\frac{1}{n}\right)^n$$ generates $\displaystyle \lim_{n\to\infty} \left(1+\frac{1}{n}\right)^n$ (and is equal to e if you were wondering (Wink))

Wikipedia also uses latex (although within HTML) so change their $....$ to $$...$$ to get the same output.

It may take a while to learn but once you do it's immensely useful in getting members to check what you mean

"It may take a while to learn but once you do it's immensely useful in getting members to check what you mean." Exactly e^(i*pi) as I'm trying to help others to understand what I'm talking about (as well as making it easier on the eyes).
