Blogging with LaTeX

As a theoretical physicist I deal with various mathematical equations and formulae on a daily basis. In order to present my work in a digital format I have to resort to various tricks and devices. Fortunately for a few decades now we’ve had a wonderful math typesetting tool called \LaTeX. \LaTeX, however, never really cough on the web, which made posting about math and physics a bit tricky. I’ve just discovered a pretty cool and powerful WordPress plugin called JetPack, which among other neat features allows for the use of \LaTeX. I don’t envision using it all that much, at least not on this blog, but if I ever have a need to insert some math into my blog posts then it will be good to know that I have that option. In a meanwhile, here is one of my favorite Physics equations:

F^{\mu \nu} = \partial^{\mu} A^{\nu} - \partial^{\nu} A^{\mu}


Bojan Tunguz

Bojan Tunguz was born in Bosnia and Herzegovina, which he and his family fled during the civil war for the neighboring Croatia. Over the past two decades he has studied, lived and worked in the United States. He is a theoretical physicist with degrees from Stanford and University of Illinois. Tunguz has taught physics at several prominent liberal arts colleges and has been writing about physics, science and technology for more than a decade. He also has a wide spectrum of interests, and reads and writes about current events, society, culture, religion and politics. Over the years he has reviewed many of the books that he has read, and posted his reviews on various online outlets. In 2011 he had become a top 10 reviewer on, where he continues to be very active. Aside from reading and writing, Tunguz enjoys traveling, digital photography, hiking, and fitness. He resides with his wife in Indiana.

    I just wanted to see if I can use LaTeX in blog replies too.
