'''Asymptote''' is a powerful vector graphics language designed for creating mathematical diagrams and figures. It can output images in either eps or pdf format and is compatible with the standard mathematics typesetting language, [[LaTeX]].  It is also a complete programming language and has cleaner syntax than its predecessor, [http://netlib.bell-labs.com/who/hobby/MetaPost.html MetaPost], which was a language used only for two-dimensional graphics.
 
  
Here is an example of an image that can be produced using Asymptote:

In a sense, Asymptote is the ruler and compass of typesetting.
 
 
 
 
 
You can use Asymptote on the AoPSWiki right now, by enclosing the Asymptote code within <tt><nowiki><asy>...</asy></nowiki></tt> tags. For example, the following code
 
<pre><nowiki><asy>
 
draw((0,0)--(3,7),red);
 
dot((0,0));
 
dot((3,7));
 
label("Produced with Asymptote "+version.VERSION,point(S),2S);
 
</asy></nowiki></pre>
 
created the picture
 
<center><asy>
 
draw((0,0)--(3,7),red);
 
dot((0,0));
 
dot((3,7));
 
label("Produced with Asymptote "+version.VERSION,point(S),2S);
 
</asy></center>
 
And on the AoPS forums you can use <tt><nowiki>[asy]..[/asy]</nowiki></tt>
 
 
 
Another example:
 
 
 
<pre><nowiki>[asy]
 
pair A,B,C,X,Y,Z;
 
A = (0,0);
 
B = (1,0);
 
C = (0.3,0.8);
 
draw(A--B--C--A);
 
X = (B+C)/2;
 
Y = (A+C)/2;
 
Z = (A+B)/2;
 
draw(A--X, red);
 
draw(B--Y,red);
 
draw(C--Z,red);
 
[/asy]</nowiki></pre>
 
 
 
<asy>
 
pair A,B,C,X,Y,Z;
 
A = (0,0);
 
B = (1,0);
 
C = (0.3,0.8);
 
draw(A--B--C--A);
 
X = (B+C)/2;
 
Y = (A+C)/2;
 
Z = (A+B)/2;
 
draw(A--X, red);
 
draw(B--Y,red);
 
draw(C--Z,red);

Admins, I figured out a way to edit anything in the wiki page, please pm mem so I can explain to you how so this bug can hopefully be fixed. It is a very big bug ~Firebolt360.

The $\text{\LaTeX}$ typesetting system (typically pronounced "Lah-Tek") is widely used to produce well-formatted mathematical and scientific writing. $\text{\LaTeX}$ is very handy for producing equations such as

\[\frac 25\cdot13=\frac{26}{5}\cdot1=\sqrt{\tfrac{676}{25}}.\]

Nearly every serious student of math or science will use $\text{\LaTeX}$ frequently. Through these web pages, you will learn much of what you'll need to express math and science like a professional.
