How may I transfer mathematical text (with symbols, etc.) from Wolfram Mathematica into Stack Exchange?

Try TeXForm[] in Mathematica.

TeXForm[Integrate[f(x), {x,-7,\[Pi]}]]

which outputs

\int_{-7}^{\pi } f(x) \, dx

Putting that between dollar signs on this page

$\int_{-7}^{\pi } f(x) \, dx$

yields $\int_{-7}^{\pi } f(x) \, dx$. (footnote 1) Between double dollar signs, $$\int_{-7}^{\pi } f(x) \, dx \text{.} $$

It's not perfect, and you may want to tweak the results, but it is an 80+% solution.

(footnote 1) There are several style faults in the form of integrals produced by Mathematica. I would always style the given integral as \int_{-7}^{\pi } \; f(x) \, \mathrm{d}x, "$\int_{-7}^{\pi } \; f(x) \, \mathrm{d}x$", but there are plenty of sources that can't be bothered to ensure the limits of integration and integrand don't collide and don't correctly render operators in an upright font.

  • $\begingroup$ Upright font for dx is the continental European convention, italic font is the US convention. $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ thanks; I was using wrong input format for TeXForm function. This clears that up, I think. $\endgroup$
