Template documentation[view] [edit] [history] [purge]

The mvar template makes the argument italic and formats as mathematics. It is used to refer to individual variables in normal running text. It should not be used within a {{math}} template.

Note that digits in a variable name are conventionally not italic so {{math}} should be used instead in for example {} to produce x1. Functions and variables made up of multiple letters are conventionally set in upright letters so {{math}} should be used in that case too; for example {} to produce cos.


For example:

Let {} be the maximum value used. 


Let x be the maximum value used.
