Brackets with matrices look ugly!

For background, we start with an overview of the matrix command:

Markup

Result

matrix { a # b ## c # d }



Note

Rows are separated by two #’s and entries within each row are separated by one #.



The first problem people have with matrices is that brackets do not “scale†with the matrix:

Markup

Result

( matrix { a # b ## c # d } )



OOoMath provides “scalable†brackets. That is, the brackets grow in size to match the size of their contents. Use the commands left( and right) to make scalable brackets.

Markup

Result

left( matrix { a # b ## c # d } right)



TIP

Use left[ and right] to obtain square brackets.
