TeX is written by a mathematician, and has always contained good
support for formatting mathematical text. AUC TeX supports this
tradition, by offering a special minor mode for entering text with many
mathematic symbols. You can enter this mode by typing `C-c
~`.

__Command:__ **LaTeX-math-mode**

(`C-c ~`) Toggle LaTeX-math-mode. This is a minor mode rebinding
the key `LaTeX-math-abbrev-prefix`

to allow easy typing of
mathematical symbols. ``` will read a character from the keyboard,
and insert the symbol as specified in `LaTeX-mathlist`

. If given a
prefix argument, the symbol will be surrounded by dollar signs.

You can use another prefix key (instead of ```) by setting the
variable LaTeX-math-abbrev-prefix.

__User Option:__ **LaTeX-math-abbrev-prefix**

A string containing the prefix of `LaTeX-math-mode`

commands;
This value defaults to ```.

The variable `LaTeX-mathlist`

holds the actual mapping.

__User Option:__ **LaTeX-mathlist**

Alist containing key-command mappings to use in `LaTeX-math-mode`

.
The car of each element is the key and the cdr is the macro name.
