Markdown convertion optimized for scientific documents

Since Mathpix Markdown is a strict superset of Markdown, our conversion tooling for MMD is more powerful than what is possible with standard Markdown.

Document with an equation

Equations

Advanced support for math, physics, and statistics expressions via Mathjax, including equation references via the \eqref, \label, \ref commands

Document with a table

Tables

Full support for LaTeX style tabular environments in addition to Markdown style tables

Document with an image

Images

Figures are preserved in the output documents as expected; for LaTeX outputs, which are returned as compressed zip files, they are put in a special images folder

Mathpix Markdown (MMD)

We took standard Markdown and extended it with key LaTeX features and chemistry support.
