$\KaTeX$ is used for rendering LaTeX math expressions. It can be enabled per page by setting math to true in the page front matter.

title: "My Page with LaTeX"
math: true

When enabled, the scripts, stylesheets and fonts from KaTeX will be included automatically in your site. You can start using LaTeX math expressions in your Markdown content.


Both inline and separate paragraph LaTeX math expressions are supported in the Markdown content.

This $\sigma(z) = \frac{1}{1 + e^{-z}}$ is inline.

This $\sigma(z) = \frac{1}{1 + e^{-z}}$ is inline.

Separate Paragraph
$$F(\omega) = \int_{-\infty}^{\infty} f(t) e^{-j\omega t} \, dt$$

will be rendered as:

$$F(\omega) = \int_{-\infty}^{\infty} f(t) e^{-j\omega t} , dt$$

Supported Functions

For a list of supported functions, see KaTeX supported functions.


Chemistry expressions are supported via mhchem extension.

Inline: $\ce{H2O}$ is water.

Separate paragraph:
$$\ce{Hg^2+ ->[I-] HgI2 ->[I-] [Hg^{II}I4]^2-}$$

$$\ce{Hg^2+ ->[I-] HgI2 ->[I-] [Hg^{II}I4]^2-}$$
