New plugin – LaTeX formulae on their way

Trying out a new plugin that will allow me to include pretty formulae in future posts. Like this:

$latex e^{\i \pi} + 1 = 0$

$latex \sqrt [3] {\alpha . \beta – \Omega} $

Not sure how much use I’ll get out of it, but good to know the capability is there should I need it.

  1. I recognise the first equation, but what is the second equation? Anything noteworthy?
