# Math with newmat

From ConTeXt wiki

< Math | MathML | Math with amsl | Math with nath >

Here some short examples of how to use math with the newmat module, which "collects macros that TeX users kind of expect to be available when typesetting math," according to the documentation. These currently include the `\frac` family (`\frac`, `\dfrac`, `\tfrac`, `\binom`, etc.), the `\QED` symbol, the `\boxed` command, and the `subarray`, `substack`, and `smallmatrix` environments, along with a few others. At one time it also included the `\text` command, though that has now been moved to the core.

Inline maths:

\usemodule[newmat] Inline math: $x = \frac{y}{2z} + x_{\text{center}}$

Display math:

\usemodule[newmat] Display math: \startformula q = \delta \frac{\partial p}{\partial x} = \delta(\phi) p_{vsat}(\theta) \frac{\partial \phi}{\partial x} = \left[ \frac{\delta_a}{\mu(\theta)} p_{vsat}(\theta) \right] \frac{\partial \phi}{\partial x} = k \frac{\partial \phi}{\partial x} \stopformula

Aligned display math:

\usemodule[newmat] \startformula\eqalign{ t_{L,\text{early}} & = t_{L,\text{late}} = t_{L,\text{ray}} \cr & = 6\ \mu m \cr }\stopformula
