The *asciimath* and *latexmath* passthrough blocks along with
the *asciimath* and *latexmath* passthrough macros provide a
(backend dependent) mechanism for rendering mathematical formulas. You
can use the following math markups:

LaTeX math can be included in documents that are processed by dblatex(1). Example inline formula:

latexmath:[$C = \alpha + \beta Y^{\gamma} + \epsilon$]

For more examples see the AsciiDoc website or the
distributed `doc/latexmath.txt`

file.

MathJax allows LaTeX Math style formulas to be included
in XHTML documents generated via the AsciiDoc *xhtml11* and *html5* backends.
This route overcomes several restrictions of the MathML-based approaches,
notably, restricted support of MathML by many mainstream browsers. To enable
*MathJax* support you must define the *mathjax* attribute, for example using the
`-a mathjax`

command-line option. Equations are specified as explained above
using the *latexmath* passthrough blocks. By default, rendering of equations
with *MathJax* requires a working internet connection and will thus not work if
you are offline (but it can be configured differently).

*LaTeXMathML* allows LaTeX Math style formulas to be included in XHTML
documents generated using the AsciiDoc *xhtml11* and *html5* backends.
AsciiDoc uses the
original
LaTeXMathML by Douglas Woodall. *LaTeXMathML* is derived from
ASCIIMath and is for users who are more familiar with or prefer
using LaTeX math formulas (it recognizes a subset of LaTeX Math, the
differences are documented on the *LaTeXMathML* web page). To enable
LaTeXMathML support you must define the *latexmath* attribute, for
example using the `-a latexmath`

command-line option. Example inline
formula:

latexmath:[$\sum_{n=1}^\infty \frac{1}{2^n}$]

For more examples see the AsciiDoc website or the
distributed `doc/latexmathml.txt`

file.

ASCIIMath formulas can be included in XHTML
documents generated using the *xhtml11* and *html5* backends. To enable
ASCIIMath support you must define the *asciimath* attribute, for
example using the `-a asciimath`

command-line option. Example inline
formula:

asciimath:[`x/x={(1,if x!=0),(text{undefined},if x=0):}`]

For more examples see the AsciiDoc website or the
distributed `doc/asciimath.txt`

MathML is a low level XML markup for mathematics. AsciiDoc has no macros for MathML but users familiar with this markup could use passthrough macros and passthrough blocks to include MathML in output documents.
