Default Typing Equations

I am trying to type in some equations in an essay and finding it very hard to look for Greek symbols for each and every term I want to use. Is there a better way to do it?

google for online LaTeX compilers. that's the easiest way to do it.
you need to use a relatively simple syntax to use the symbols, like /alpha.

you can just use an online LaTeX compiler (it works like online translators, you type in the equation in syntax form, it gives the output in symbols) and paste it in OO .doc file without any hassle.

It seems you are an expert in LaTeX. Can you put an example here if not that complex?

expert kisu noi, I've used it that's all.

here's an example using http://www.codecogs.com/latex/eqneditor.php


here is the input code
\int^b_a dx = [x]^b_a = b-a

you can also go the whole hog and do everything in latex instead of OO but it takes a few days of getting used to. the good thing is you have complete control over the environment.

I know in Microsoft world equation editor you can do backslash and the name of the symbol and it will automatically get it for you. For example '\delta' or '\rho'. I don't if that's how keyboard shortcuts work in open office, but worth a shot I guess.
