prints as a TeX version of expr.
  • TeXForm produces AMS-LaTeX-compatible TeX output.
  • TeXForm acts as a "wrapper", which affects printing, but not evaluation.
  • TeXForm translates standard mathematical functions and operations.
  • Symbols with names like and that correspond to TeX symbols are translated into their corresponding TeX symbols. »
  • Following standard mathematical conventions, single-character symbol names are given in italic font, while multiple character names are given in roman font.
  • Mathematica special characters are translated whenever possible to their TeX equivalents.
