# Is this the right community for this type of question + latex support

I posted this question on robotics.stackexchange because the lack of latex support for gis.stackexchange made me wonder whether or not it was the appropriate community to ask such questions. So I actually have two questions: do you think that this question is more appropriate where it was posted, or would gis.stackexchange be a better option? Second, will there be any latex support (well, maybe there already is, but it just is not accessible through the usual syntax?)?

do you think that this question is more appropriate where it was posted, or would gis.stackexchange be a better option?

I'm not sure GIS SE would be a better option here, for two reasons:

1. The actual problem doesn't appear to be about GIS specifically - To me it appears you're asking about what parts of a formula means (correct me if I'm wrong), which leads me to...
2. Mathematics SE may be a good option if Robotics SE isn't the right one for your question.

That all said, I may be way off as I really didn't understand much of what you wrote, and if so hopefully some of our more knowledgeable users can weigh in here by posting an answer.

Second, will there be any latex support (well, maybe there already is, but it just is not accessible through the usual syntax?)?

Unlikely - there's been no call for it (that I'm aware of), and because of There's seriously no reason why LaTeX markup via MathJax shouldn't be enabled on SO - specifically Nick Craver's answer.
