Pandoc Markdown Demo

Put your bibliography into literature.bib.

Your markdown files are processed in alphabetic order.

In this section we will see what you can do with Markdown.

Some simple formatting

We can write in italic, bold, monospace and strike-through.

We can use sub- and superscripts, like: H2O and 210 is 1024.

Some inline LaTeX-style math – \(f(x)=x^{\sqrt{2}}\) – and also display math:

\[ e^{i\pi} -1 = 0 \]


We can link to external sites.

We are now in the first section and see what is possible.

This is a proper citation (Wilkinson et al. 2016).

  1. This is a list inside a block quote.
  2. Second item.

Another one:

This is a block quote.

A block quote within a block quote.

Some code

if (a > 3) {
  moveShip(5 * gravity, DOWN);

More code

if (a > 3) {
  moveShip(5 * gravity, DOWN);
def test():
  println("hello world!")

Preserve manual spacing:

The limerick packs laughs anatomical
In space that is quite economical.
   But the good ones I’ve seen
   So seldom are clean
And the clean ones so seldom are comical

Various kinds of lists

A tight list

A loose list

A nested list:

An ordered list:

  1. one
  2. two
  3. three

With manual number styling:

  1. Ninth
  2. Tenth
  3. Eleventh
    1. subone
    2. subtwo
    3. subthree

A task list:

Definition lists

  1. This is a good example.

We can refer to our example (1) which illustrates, …

A horizontal rule:


Demonstration of simple table syntax.
Right Left Center Default
12 12 12 12
123 123 123 123
1 1 1 1

Or without header:

12 12 12 12
123 123 123 123
1 1 1 1

Or with multiple lines:

Here’s the caption. It, too, may span multiple lines.
Centered Header Default Aligned Right Aligned Left Aligned
First row 12.0 Example of a row that spans multiple lines.
Second row 5.0 Here’s another one. Note the blank line between rows.
Sample grid table.

Colons mark alignment:

Right Left Centered
Bananas $1.34 built-in wrapper

For headerless tables, the colons go on the top line instead:
