Wordpress: Easy as PI

Sometimes, WordPress.com just impresses me.

An announcement today that WordPress now includes inline support for LaTeX. If you’re not familiar with LaTeX, it’s a typesetting language, designed to easily produce complex, mathematical statements for sophisticated academic documents.

I don’t know LaTeX, but it’s going to be neat to be able to properly represent mathematical equations here on a simple blog, particularly when I post about how to evaluate investments, etc.

For now, I’m just going to close with my all time favorite equation:

e^{\pi\i} + 1 = 0

The five most important numbers in math, all together in one equation. Euler’s Identity.

Blogging with math is going to be fun.
