TeXForm

TeXForm[expr]

prints as a TeX version of expr.

Details

  • TeXForm produces AMS-LaTeXcompatible TeX output.
  • When an input evaluates to TeXForm[expr], TeXForm does not appear in the output. »
  • TeXForm translates standard mathematical functions and operations.
  • TeXForm[expr] is equivalent to TeXForm[TraditionalForm[expr]]. TeXForm[StandardForm[expr]] can be used to get StandardForm TeX output. »
  • Symbols with names like alpha and ALPHA that correspond to TeX symbols are translated into their corresponding TeX symbols. »
  • Following standard mathematical conventions, singlecharacter symbol names are given in italic font, while multiple character names are given in roman font.
  • Wolfram Language special characters are translated whenever possible to their TeX equivalents.

Convert an expression to TeX:

Use ToExpression to convert TeX back to Wolfram Language syntax:

Use ToExpression to convert from TeX to the Wolfram Language:

The following expression will evaluate:

Use HoldForm to convert unevaluated expressions:

Use Export to generate a compilable TeX document:

When an input evaluates to TeXForm[expr], TeXForm does not appear in the output:

Out is assigned the value x2, not TeXForm[x^2]:

Possible Issues  (1)

Even when an output omits TeXForm from the top level, it is not stripped from subexpressions:

The output does not have TeXForm in it:

However, the variable e does have TeXForm in it, which may affect subsequent evaluations:

The product is not evaluated due to the intervening TeXForm:

Assign variables first and then apply TeXForm to the result to maintain computability:
