This theme supports rendering beautiful math in inline and display modes using MathJax 3 engine.
You just need to surround your math expression with
$$ E = mc^2 $$.
If you leave it inside a paragraph, it will produce an inline expression, just like \(E = mc^2\).
To use display mode, again surround your expression with

Here is an example:
Note that MathJax 3 is a major re-write of MathJax that brought a significant improvement to the loading and rendering speed, which is now on par with KaTeX.
Citations are then used in the article body with the
The key attribute is a reference to the id provided in the bibliography.
The key attribute can take multiple ids, separated by commas.

Just wrap the text you would like to show up in a footnote in a
The number of the footnote will be automatically generated.

The main text column is referred to as the body.
It is the assumed layout of any direct descendants of the
For images you want to display a little larger, try
All of these have an outset variant if you want to poke out from the body text a little bit.
Occasionally you’ll want to use the full browser width.
For this, use
You can also inset the element a little from the edge of the browser by using the inset variant.
The final layout is for marginalia, asides, and footnotes.
