    Latex on word

    So I hear people talking about it all the time, but what exactly do I have to download so that I can use Latex in word? I mean I want to be able to go into word and just type 0\longrightarrow C^n(A+B,G)\stackrel{\psi}{\longrightarrow}C^n(A;G)  \oplus C^n(B;G)\stackrel{\varphi}{\longrightarrow}C^n(A\c  ap B;G)\longrightarrow 0 and thats what shows up...the same code as I used there. Is that possible? And if so what do I download and where do I do it?

    thanks so much in advance

    Word 2007 has it's own LaTeX system built in. It's more of a point and click system than what we do here on MHF though.

    Thank you very much Janvdl for your response. What does point and click mean (or is it literally what it sounds like). The problem I am encountering (and I have word 2007) is that

    A) I have to either do a control key combination or click a button to start the "equation" editor thing. So if I wanted to type \bigoplus I would have to stop my thought process and go tromping through the symbol list.

    B) The commands are very limited. They would be fantastic for someone who uses it casually, but it does not have the breadth of symbols I wish to use.

    Does anyone konw any way to solve either of these things? Thank you very much in advance.

    In fact, you can type exactly that in Word for Windows, press the shortkey combination Alt+\ (or click a toolbar/Ribbon icon), and it will be converted to a "built-up" equation. If you want to edit the TeX, use the Alt+\ shortcut again, edit it, and press Alt+\ one more time. This will work IF you have MathType, which was released barely a month ago. The only thing you need to add to the code in your post are the delimiters -- $...$ for an inline equation (i.e., inline with the text of a sentence) or \[...\] for a display equation (i.e., one in its own paragraph, centered on the line).

    So,

    $0\longrightarrow C^n(A+B,G)\stackrel{\psi}{\longrightarrow}C^n(A;G) \oplus C^n(B;G)\stackrel{\varphi}{\longrightarrow}C^n(A\c ap B;G)\longrightarrow 0$

    becomes

    0\longrightarrow C^n(A+B,G)\stackrel{\psi}{\longrightarrow}C^n(A;G)  \oplus C^n(B;G)\stackrel{\varphi}{\longrightarrow}C^n(A\c  ap B;G)\longrightarrow 0

    *edited out sentence*

    Microsoft Equation 3.0

    Microsoft Word has an attachment called Equation 3.0.

    In Word, if you do Insert->Object->Create New and scroll down to Microsoft Equation 3.0, you can create equations with a visual interface.

    If you don't see Equation in your object list, you'll have to refer to your original Microsoft Office disk.

    Hope that helps.
