    I am seeking methods to add mathjax or any latex in hubpages articles to show complex mathematical problems like below images

    Please help me to do this

      Copy your equation and try pasting it in the text capsule. The text box in the Forum tool is not supporting it. But editor invoked through text capsule supports it. I hope it is a Unicode editor and you can even type some Chinese or Korean text there.   

      Below is the example I tried for you:

      If it does not work for all the special chars then you go ahead with Titia Geertman advice.

    Unfortunately, that's not possible right now.

    Where do you get the common z in your second line from though? Line one does not equate line two unless there is some relatively new complex number postulate out there?

    I think you just solved your problem yourself by showing it in an image like you did here. Make an image and put it in a photo capsule.There's no other way to do these things on HP.

    The complex conjugate z bar seems to be the only symbol that can't be implemented. All the others can be sourced from the character map or by using superscripts in a text module.

    So you can do plus/minus, squared and cubed.

    ± ² ³

    The symbol button in a text module gives you access to Greek letters, and some mathematical symbols like square root.

    I can't remember, but are complex numbers normally designated by any other letter than z? There are other letters in the character map with a bar over the top (macron).

    Probably the best thing if you want to do anything fancy is to use an equation editor and save the result as an image that you can import into your article.

    Maybe it wouldn't be too difficult for the HubPages technical people to at least allow us to use symbols, superscripts and subscripts in Q&A, comments and tables, just like we can use them in text modules?

    I am in the process of writing a physics tutorial for HP. I was loading a partial draft of the article and realized that the equations in MS Word don't show up in the HP editor. Other than making every equation an image (a very slow process) is there a simpler process to put math equations in a HP article?

      It depends on the equation Doug. Did you read my comment above from 3 years ago? Some symbols are available as ASCII characters. The main thing you won't be able to do is use fractions with a horizontal bar between the numerator and denominator. So you'd just have to use the "/" character. If there's lots of variables in the numerator or denominator, it means everything has to be surrounded by parentheses which doesn't look great). If you're creating formulas as images, allow sufficient white space around them so that the variables don't appear huge, relative to text in capsules. You can of course screen capture the MS Word formulas if there isn't an option to save them as an image. You could include explanatory text that would appear between lines of formulas, e.g. in a derivation, such as "rearrange the quation giving:", as part of the word document, then screenshot the whole thing, rather than using individual formulas and interleaving them with text capsules in the Hubpages editor.

    Thanks for the quick reply. I am not sure what I am going to do about the tutorial article and all the equations. There doesn't seem to be a good answer. This one may have to go on the back burner for a while.
