### 11.5 Embedded LaTeX

For scientific notes which need to be able to contain mathematical symbols
and the occasional formula, Org-mode supports embedding LaTeX code into
its files. You can directly use TeX-like syntax for special symbols, enter
formulas and entire LaTeX environments.

Angles are written as Greek letters \alpha, \beta and \gamma. The mass if
the sun is M_sun = 1.989 x 10^30 kg. The radius of the sun is R_{sun} =
6.96 x 10^8 m. If $a^2=b$ and $b=2$, then the solution must be either
$a=+\sqrt{2}$ or $a=-\sqrt{2}$.
\begin{equation}
x=\sqrt{b}
\end{equation}

With
special setup, LaTeX snippets will be included as images when exporting to HTML.
