Here is a quick list of frequently used commands for mathematics in Latex.

All commands are in math mode, i.e. enclosed within either dollar signs or "\[ ... \]."

There are several matrix environments in Latex.

I will start with the "pmatrix" environment.

A very simple 2X2 matrix such as: 

\[\begin{pmatrix}
a_{11} & a_{12} \\
\\
a_{21} & a_{22}
\end{pmatrix}\]

 would be written as follows:

\[\begin{pmatrix}
a_{11} & a_{12} \\
\\
a_{21} & a_{22}
\end{pmatrix}\]

 

The basic vector command in Latex is

\( \vec{v}    :=   \)      \vec{v}
