I am writing a lot of blog articles about computer science / mathematics. This means I want formulas to be rendered in a similar way like TeX does it. I don’t expect CommonMark to specify / implement this (although it would be nice). I just would appreciate it, if CommonMark would not mess with blocks of TeX-like math.

## Example

The source

```
This is a set: \(A = \{1,2\}\)
```

gets transferred into

```
<p>This is a set: (A = {1,2})</p>
```

whereas I would like it to be

```
<p>This is a set: \(A = \{1,2\}\)</p>
```

so that MathJax can grab the `\(...\)`

and `\[...\]`

blocks and render them.

## What about the Dollar-Notation?

People who write about mathematics propably would like to use a notation like `$A = \{1,2\}$`

or `$$A = \{1,2\}$$`

. However, as pointed out in a similar discussion this is a problem for parsing.

For example, consider:

```
Let $y = m * x + b$ where $b$ is US$50,000
```

As Dollar signs are probably too common for non-mathematicians, I suggest to simply not deal with that. The notation `\(..\)`

for inline mathematics and `\[...\]`

should proably be used in LaTeX documents anyway (see Are ( and ) preferable to dollar signs for math mode?)
