Testing LaTeX Support

I just set up the WordPress $\LaTeX$ plugin so I can do some formula stuff here.Â  This is just a little test post with some example formulas taken from my sun/earth collision model.

Euler's Identity (at different sizes): $e^{i \pi} + 1 = 0$ $e^{i \pi} + 1 = 0$

Gravitational Constant: $G= 6.673 \times 10^{-11} m^3\: kg^{-1}\: s^{-2} = 6.673 \times 10^{-11} \frac{m^3}{kg\:s^2}$

Force due to gravity: $F = G \frac{M_1 M_2}{r^2}$

Inline also works (e.g., $2 + 2 = 4$).

If you use shortcodes within a paragraph (e.g., $3 + 1 = 4$) instead of the inline notation, you'll get a block. (This is a custom mod.)

Finally, if you put an inline in its own paragraph, it'll do this: $8 \div 2 = 4$

Unless you explicitly state that it is a block: $8 \div 2 = 4$

The reverse of that, as you'd expect, lets in-paragraph shortcodes work too (e.g., $3 + 1 = 4$).

If you want to see the raw $\LaTeX$, it's in the tooltip/title of the image.Â  WordPress.com provides the encoding service, though the plugin supports a local/third-party image service as well.
