Trying out the LaTeX Plugin

September 11th, 2008 · No Comments · Uncategorized

This is an experiment to see how the WordPress \LaTeX plugin works.  What better equation to try out than the Euler-Lotka equation:

 1 = \int_{\alpha}^{\beta} e^{-ra} l(a)m(a) da

where \alpha is age at first reproduction, \beta is age at last reproduction, r is the intrinsic rate of population increase, l(a) is the proportion surviving to exact age a, and m(a) is the fertility rate of women age a.
