Math

One of the major reasons for using LaTeX is its strong handling of mathematical equations and formulas. This is a complex subject so I'm just going to touch on the basics to give you a feel for how it works, and looks.

You insert mathematical symbols into your document by either surrounding the expressions with the $ symbol, or using the begin/end math commands.

The time-points $x_{i}$ to $x_{j}$ are embedded in the main text.

$(l_{1} \leq x_{j} - x_{i} \leq u_{i}) \vee ... \vee (l_{n} \leq x_{j} - x_{i} \leq u_{n})$
