## Simple Math Placed Inline or Anywhere

Anywhere you want to use Greek symbols or a short math expression, you can type the equation in latex surrounded by $..$. They don't absolutely need to be simple expressions.

You type Shows up as
${N} = {E}/\sigma$ ${N}={E}/\sigma$
...for low values of ${{\Re}_{*}}(\Re \lt 1)$,... ...for low values of

${{\Re}_{*}}(\Re < 1)$,...

Typically though, if your math expression is quite complicated or one that you will reference later, it is desired to use an equation number. The wiki can do this quite easily for you and is explained on the next page.
