Organisation of the Explanatoy Supplement[edit]

Use of the available extensions[edit]


The MathJax extension allows the use of MathJax, a display engine for mathematics providing high quality mathematics fonts. The main interest for the ES lies in its ability to produce high quality display of latex formulae with no need for any extra tags. Equations may simply be written in Latex and MathJax will recognize the Latex Tags.

As an example, the following lines with a reasonably complex set of equations

  \newcommand{\pFq}[5]{{}_{#1}\mathrm{F}_{#2} \left( \genfrac{}{}{0pt}{}{#3}{#4} \bigg| {#5} \right)}
We consider, for various values of $s$, the $n$-dimensional integral
  W_n (s)
  \int_{[0, 1]^n} 
    \left| \sum_{k = 1}^n \mathrm{e}^{2 \pi \mathrm{i} \, x_k} \right|^s \mathrm{d}\boldsymbol{x}
which occurs in the theory of uniform random walk integrals in the plane, 
where at each step a unit-step is taken in a random direction.  As such, 
the integral \eqref{def:Wns} expresses the $s$-th moment of the distance 
to the origin after $n$ steps.
By experimentation and some sketchy arguments we quickly conjectured and 
strongly believed that, for $k$ a nonnegative integer
  W_3(k) &= \Re \, \pFq32{\frac12, -\frac k2, -\frac k2}{1, 1}{4}.
Appropriately defined, \eqref{eq:W3k} also holds for negative odd integers. 
The reason for \eqref{eq:W3k} was  long a mystery, but it will be explained 
at the end of the paper.$

will result in the the following being displayed.

Use of the <math> tag (the default maths display mechanism in MediaWiki)
