Please refer to the WikiMedia documentation for detailed instructions on displaying a formula in your pages.

Here is a very brief introduction:

Syntax

Traditionally, math markup goes inside the XML-style tag math: <math> ... </math>. The old edit toolbar has a button for this: Mathematical formula (LaTeX).

However, one can also use parser function #tag: {{#tag:math|...}}; this is more versatile: the wikitext at the dots is first expanded before interpreting the result as TeX code. Thus it can contain parameters, variables, parser functions and templates. Note however that with this syntax double braces in the TeX code must have a space in between, to avoid confusion with their use in template calls etc. Also, to produce the character "|" inside the TeX code, use {{!}}.[1]

Similar to HTML, in TeX extra spaces and newlines are ignored.
