How to Display LaTeX in the Ipython IDE with Spyder?

Estimated read time 1 min read

You can display LaTeX in the IPython console and the Spyder IDE by using the display() function from the IPython.display module. Here’s an example of how to use it:

from IPython.display import display, Math

# Define the LaTeX string
latex_string = r'$\frac{1}{2} \int_{-\infty}^{\infty} e^{-x^2} \mathrm{d}x$'

# Display the LaTeX string
display(Math(latex_string))

In this example, we first import the display() and Math() functions from the IPython.display module. Then, we define a LaTeX string and use the display() function to display it as rendered math using the Math() function.

Note that in order for LaTeX to be rendered correctly, it needs to be enclosed in $ or $$ symbols to indicate that it is a mathematical expression. Additionally, the LaTeX string should be formatted as a raw string, which is done by prefixing it with the letter r.
