There is a similar Support Tablesorted alphabetically, that lists both supported and un-supported functions. Distance can be written with any of the KaTeX units. The following "raw HTML" features are potentially dangerous for untrusted inputs, so they are disabled by default, and attempting to use them produces the command names in red which you can configure via the errorColor option.
It uses external programs specifically latex, dvipng or dvips-and-convert, or mimetex to generate png or gif images from the mark up. These images are then included in the rendered TWiki page. The first time a particular image is generated, there may be a significant lag in page rendering as the images are generated on the server.
In LaTeX backslash is used to generate a special symbol or a command. The square root of a number can never be negative by definition. The root of a quadratic equation however, can be either positive or negative. Formulas that appear in text are called inline.
The mathematical equations and symbols in this website is created using MathJax service. To use MathJax on WordPress, write the following code in header. The LaTex code.
This page introduces various useful commands for rendering math in LaTeX, as well as instructions for building your own commands. Finally, notice that we put curly braces around exponents and subscripts with more than one character. You have to do so, or you'll end up with or when you really want or.
The picture environment allows programming pictures directly in LaTeX. On the one hand, there are rather severe constraints, as the slopes of line segments and the radii of circles are restricted to a narrow choice of values. Although programming pictures directly in LaTeX is severely restricted, and often rather tiresome, there are still reasons for doing so. The documents thus produced are "small" with respect to bytes, and there are no additional graphics files to be dragged along.

The American Mathematical Society has enormously extended the mathematical environments, commands, fonts and symbols in LaTeX. Investigate other extensions if you can spare the time.
