This documentation subpage contains instructions, categories, or other information for Template:Mi. [<Edit> Template:Mi]

[⧼Purge⧽ Template:Mi/doc]

The {{mi}} (mathematical identifier) mathematical formatting template formats a mathematical identifier (of either a constant or a variable).

Usage

{{mi|mathematical identifier}}

or

{{mi|mathematical identifier|format}}

where format is among

Examples

Code Result Comment
{{mi|x}} @idsp@x@idsp@ (italic, e.g. ​''x''​)
{{mi|x|htm}} @idsp@x@idsp@ (italic, e.g. ​''x''​)
{{mi|x|tex}} x (left as is, since LaTeX italicizes by default)
{{mi|x|mml}} <mi>x</mi>

HTML+CSS examples

The code

: {{math|{{mi|x|htm}}{{^|{{mn|2|htm}}}}{{mo|+|htm}}{{mi|y|htm}}{{^|{{mn|2|htm}}}}{{mo|{{=}}|htm}}{{mi|r|htm}}{{^|{{mn|2|htm}}}}|&}}


yields

 x 2 + y 2  Undefined symbol: =  r 2

while the code

: {{math|{{mi|x|htm}}{{^|{{mn|2|htm}}}}{{mo|+|htm}}{{mi|y|htm}}{{^|{{mn|2|htm}}}}{{mo|{{=}}|htm}}{{mi|r|htm}}{{^|{{mn|2|htm}}}}|&&}}


yields

 x 2+y 2 Undefined symbol: = r 2

TeX examples

The code

: {{math|{{mi|x|tex}}{{^|{{mn|2|tex}}|tex}}{{mo|+|tex}}{{mi|y|tex}}{{^|{{mn|2|tex}}|tex}}{{mo|{{=}}|tex}}{{mi|r|tex}}{{^|{{mn|2|tex}}|tex}}|$}}  yields ${\displaystyle \textstyle {x^{2}{\,}{\rm {+}}{\,}y^{2}{\,}{\rm {\color {red}{\text{ Undefined symbol: = }}}}{\,}r^{2}}}$ while the code : {{math|{{mi|x|tex}}{{^|{{mn|2|tex}}|tex}}{{mo|+|tex}}{{mi|y|tex}}{{^|{{mn|2|tex}}|tex}}{{mo|{{=}}|tex}}{{mi|r|tex}}{{^|{{mn|2|tex}}|tex}}|$\$}}


yields

${\displaystyle {\begin{array}{l}\displaystyle {x^{2}{\rm {+}}y^{2}{\rm {\color {red}{\text{ Undefined symbol: = }}}}r^{2}}\end{array}}}$

MathML examples

The code

{{math|{{mi|x|mml}}{{mo|^|mml}}{{mn|2|mml}}{{mo|+|mml}}{{mi|y|mml}}{{mo|^|mml}}{{mn|2|mml}}{{mo|{{=}}|mml}}{{mi|r|mml}}{{mo|^|mml}}{{mn|2|mml}}|mml &}}

Formatting for a mathematical identifier (of either a constant or a variable).

@idsp@ (identifier space) annotation for the {{math}} template (two consecutive identifiers yield a pair @idsp@@idsp@) in which

* for htm: all @idsp@@idsp@ pairs are replaced by {{sp|1}} (1mu space), then all single @idsp@ are discarded;
* for tex: all @idsp@ are discarded (use LaTeX default formatting);
* for mml: all @idsp@ are discarded (use MathML default formatting).
