    What LaTeX problems are you having?

    \oint _c \frac{x^{3y^3}}{\text{Your variable goes here}} d \bold{x}

    Seems okay. Any specific problems about LaTeX?

    Re: What LaTeX problems are you having?

    I had trouble earlier today with a piecewise function. Using the example code:

    f(x)=\begin{cases}
    x^2 && x\ne0 \\
    1 && x=0 \\
    \end{cases}

    I get:

    f(x)=\begin{cases}<br />
x^2 && x\ne0 \\<br />
1 && x=0 \\<br />
\end{cases}<br />

    Other than that, I haven't experienced any problems.

    It is recommended to write the formula in one line and insert spaces after every, say, 50 or 60 non-space characters

    That is very helpful, although I can't quite get it to work yet:

    f(x)=\begin{cases}x^2 \&& x\ne0 \\1 \&& x=0 \\ \end{cases}

    f(x)=\begin{cases}x^2 \&& x\ne0 \\1 \&& x=0 \\ \end{cases}

    What are you trying to achieve? The field separator on a line is "&" not "\&" (or "\&&") which renders as &

    [tex]f(x)=\begin{cases}x^2, & x\ne0 \\1, & x=0 \\ \end{cases}[/tex]

    renders as:

    f(x)=\begin{cases}x^2, & x\ne0 \\1, & x=0 \\ \end{cases}

    It has little to do with the site, it is normal LaTeX.
