# Using Mathjax

2013 June 26, John

MathJax is a javascript system for rendereing math equations in Tex, Lex, MML, and AsciiMath. All it takes is inclusion of the MathJax javascript in your displayed page. A plugin is not needed, but it does make it easier for non programmers.

### Here is an example using TEX formats

<p>
When $a \ne 0$ , there are two solutions to $$ax^2 + bx + c = 0$$ and they are
$$x = {-b \pm \sqrt{b^2-4ac} \over 2a}.$$
</p>


When $a \ne 0$, there are two solutions to $$ax^2 + bx + c = 0$$ and they are $$x = {-b \pm \sqrt{b^2-4ac} \over 2a}.$$

### And ASCIimath format

<p>
The two solutions:
x_(1,2)=(-b+-sqrt(b^2 - 4a c))/(2a)
</p>


The two solutions: x_(1,2)=(-b+-sqrt(b^2 - 4a c))/(2a)

# Fear of Crossing Bridges Opportunity

2013 May 29, john

Stumbled upon this in the New York Times today. Fear of Crossing Bridges has its own word: Gephyrophobia. Fascinating read there on Gephyrophobia. The fear is real, so it seems like there is potential for a nice retirement hobby to assist those with the phobia. Drive them across the bridge. I think that would be a cool way to spend a few afternoons a week. Just have to find the right bridge.
