Though we often tease our colleagues in the MathEcon tribe, we hope to make O&M a comfortable place for them. Henceforth, we proudly announce, for you math geeks out there, that our server now knows how to process \LaTeX code. \LaTeX, in case you don’t know, is a typesetting language created by Donald Knuth, perhaps the most brilliant computer scientist of our day, and designed to render mathematical notation cleanly and elegantly.

While management working papers are almost always written in Word, \LaTeX is extremely popular among economists, particularly when formal theory is involved. So, if you want to write the expression for the discount rate need to sustain cooperation as a Nash equilibrium in an infinitely repeated oligopoly game,

\delta \geq \frac{\pi _{i}^{d}-\pi _{i}^{\ast }}{\pi _{i}^{d}-\pi _{i}^{c}},

or the definition of Bayesian Nash equilibrium,

s_k^{*}(t_k)\in \text{argmax }\sum_{t_{-k}}U_k(s_k,s_{-k}^{*}(t_{-k}),t) \cdot p(t_{-k}|t_k)\text{ ,}

then O&M is the blog for you!

    Test: $\textrm{max}~v_i+t_i=\textrm{max} \sum_j w_j=\textrm{max}~w_i+\sum_{j\neq i} w_j$

    Sorry, I forgot to give the instructions.

    If you enclose your code with “$latex” and “$” it should work. So Michael’s code would be rendered:

    \textrm{max}~v_i+t_i=\textrm{max} \sum_j w_j=\textrm{max}~w_i+\sum_{j\neq i} w_j

    i\hbar\frac{\partial}{\partial t}\left|\Psi(t)\right>=H\left|\Psi(t)\right>
