If I have an expression in a Maple document that I can copy as MathML is it possible to paste this into Mathjax to display on StackExchange?


  • $\begingroup$ Maple has a latex() command, if memory serves... $\endgroup$ – J. M. isn't a mathematician Nov 25 '12 at 10:49
  • $\begingroup$ I use latex() for this purpose. Often the result needs additional editing, but this is easier than typing the Latex from scratch. $\endgroup$ – GEdgar Nov 25 '12 at 13:55
  • $\begingroup$ These both look like the beginnings of good answers :-) $\endgroup$ – robjohn Nov 25 '12 at 14:30
  • $\begingroup$ Thanks, a problem I've had is that sometimes when I use the latex() command on, say, a definite integral is that it gives me the solution in latex instead of the integral itself... How do you get around that and get only the expression in Latex? $\endgroup$ – Dirk Calloway Nov 25 '12 at 14:35
  • $\begingroup$ @Dirk: your followup comment can make a decent question on the Main site. Our FAQ explicitly allows questions on the use of mathematical software... $\endgroup$ – Willie Wong Nov 26 '12 at 9:50
  • $\begingroup$ Got the answer actually... Use single quotes ' ' around the expression inside the latex() function and it won't compute the answer. It will just output the expression in latex. $\endgroup$ – Dirk Calloway Nov 26 '12 at 19:57
  • $\begingroup$ In Maple, the Int() command is not evaluated, while the int() command will be (if possible). Other inert commands exist as well, such as Limit(). $\endgroup$ – GEdgar Nov 27 '12 at 18:30

Use the latex () function on the expression and use single quotes latex('expressionhere') to output just the expression itself and not the solution to the expression.
