These pages may display equations using a modified LaTeX scheme, and when
you are required to input equations, you will need to use this scheme
Sub and super scripts are indicated with `^' = superscript, and
`_' = subscript, respectively.
By LaTeX convention, the next character only is super or sub scripted
unless one specifically uses curly brackets.
e_2z means , while
e^2z means .
To do what is expected, i.e.,
On the other hand, when you are required to input equations, you will need to type them
in (no sub- or superscripts allowed) in linear fashion.
This means that you must indicate powers either with `^' or `**', and use regular brackets
i.e., `)' and `('.
Thus, e**(2*z) is the correct form for inputting the above expression.
Usually, the computer understands e, pi, h and hbar, c, etc..
Note that `e**(2*z)' is the same as `exp(2*z)'.
Note further that `exp(2z)' will not be understood!
Finally, square roots are indicated with `sqrt(2*z)', as an example.
