LaTeX math snippets (see LaTeX fragments) can be embedded in the ODT document in one of the following ways:

- MathML
This option is activated on a per-file basis with

#+OPTIONS: LaTeX:t

With this option, LaTeX fragments are first converted into MathML fragments using an external LaTeX-to-MathML converter program. The resulting MathML fragments are then embedded as an OpenDocument Formula in the exported document.

You can specify the LaTeX-to-MathML converter by customizing the variables

`org-latex-to-mathml-convert-command`

and`org-latex-to-mathml-jar-file`

.If you prefer to use

`MathToWeb`^{1}as your converter, you can configure the above variables as shown below.(setq org-latex-to-mathml-convert-command "java -jar %j -unicode -force -df %o %I" org-latex-to-mathml-jar-file "/path/to/mathtoweb.jar")

You can use the following commands to quickly verify the reliability of the LaTeX-to-MathML converter.

`M-x org-export-as-odf`- Convert a LaTeX math snippet to an OpenDocument formula (
`.odf`) file. `M-x org-export-as-odf-and-open`- Convert a LaTeX math snippet to an OpenDocument formula (
`.odf`) file and open the formula file with the system-registered application.

- PNG images
This option is activated on a per-file basis with

#+OPTIONS: LaTeX:dvipng

With this option, LaTeX fragments are processed into PNG images and the resulting images are embedded in the exported document. This method requires that the

`dvipng`program be available on your system.
