# Math Jax

**MathJax** is a markup language for formatting mathematics, and has been supported on this site since January 2019.

It uses **AsciiMath**, which appears to result in some syntax differences and limitations as compared to the MathJax syntax used at sites such as Mathematics Stack Exchange to render LaTeX.
