While running Kerr_Schild.ipynb

I get a bad output; not necessarily incorrect. I copied the TeX to a LaTeX GUI editor and it looks right. When the last expression is evaluated it outputs TeX instead of LaTeX image. It is very long so it might just be a converter problem; that I can ignore. After the leadin the expression:


Well I can't attach a trimmed file but I can provide a Dropbox link if needed. The above expression was added just after the "Kerr Metric" paragraph; about line 13. Is this my machine or LaTeX or Jupyter ?

Indeed, for very long expressions, Jupyter does not display LaTeX via MathJax, but displays instead the LaTeX source. There might be a MathJax option to circumvent this...

Thanks, I was just wondering if this was a bad sign of a coding error :) Turns out I can always drop it into Lyx; although it does run off the "page" :)

Among the results of

is a mention of a "mathjax-safe" extension, not sure if that is at play here.

pointing to some discussion of Jupyter Notebook shipping "its own (smaller) version of MathJax".
