Mathematical Typesetting
Ever since Mathematica 3 was released in 1996, one of the great unequalled achievements of Mathematica has been the deep integration of mathematical typesetting with computation. Mathematica lets you enter mathematical notation using the keyboard or palettes, and not only display it immediately, but also evaluate it with full mathematical meaning.
While many typesetting systems support the basic characters and layout of mathematics, Mathematica is unique in maintaining a true semantic representation. Coupled with many original algorithms, this gives Mathematica the ability to robustly typeset arbitrarily large formulas in real time, continuously linebreaking them in a semantically appropriate way. It also gives Mathematica the ability to convert between different notations and different display, presentation and input formats.
Mathematica integrates mathematical typesetting throughout the system, allowing it not only to be mixed arbitrarily with text, but also to appear in tables, graphics, menus, buttons, input fields, tooltips and anywhere else. Mathematica's mathematical typesetting is also uniquely extensible. With its unified symbolic architecture, Mathematica can represent typesetting constructs as symbolic structures that can immediately be manipulated using the full power of the Mathematica language. This makes it easy to scale from manual entry of small formulas, to the creation of simple templates and palettes, to full programmatic construction of arbitrary notation—taking mathematical typesetting to a new level of automation and sophistication.
