My equation is very long. How do I get it to continue on the next line rather than go off the page?

If your equation does not fit on a single line, then the `multline`

environment probably is what you need:

\begin{multline} first part of the equation \\ = second part of the equation \end{multline}

If you also need some alignment respect to the first part, you can use `split`

:

\begin{equation} \begin{split} first part &= second part #1 \\ &= second part #2 \end{split} \end{equation}

Both environments require the `amsmath`

package.

See also `aligned`

as pointed out in an answer below.

**How can I have linebreaks in my long LaTeX equations?,** If your equation does not fit on a single line, then the multline environment probably is what you need: \begin{multline} first part of the equation� I have a double-column paper and I want to fit a long text within a bracket equation with the following code: \begin{equation} \small M =\begin{cases*} 1, & some text is in here some text is in here some text is in here some text is in here some text is in here some text is in here \\ 0, & otherwise\\ \end{cases*} \end{equation}

Without configuring your math environment to clip, you could force a new line with two backslashes in a sequence like this:

Bla Bla \\ Bla Bla in another line

The problem with this is that you will need to determine where a line is likely to end and force to always have a line break there. With equations, rather than text, I prefer this manual way.

You could also use `\\*`

to prevent a new page from being started.

There are a couple ways you can deal with this. First, and perhaps best, is to rework your equation so that it is not so long; it is likely unreadable if it is that long.

If it must be so, check out the AMS Short Math Guide for some ways to handle it. (on the second page)

Personally, I'd use an align environment, so that the breaking and alignment can be precisely controlled. e.g.

\begin{align*} x&+y+\dots+\dots+x_100000000\\ &+x_100000001+\dots+\dots \end{align*}

which would line up the first plus signs of each line... but obviously, you can set the alignments wherever you like.

Such line- breaking cannot be done, however, without substan- tial changes under the hood _ active this way would have eased some implemen- that long equations will break automatically at the � (1) LATEX doesn’t break long equations to make them ﬁt within the margins as it does with normal text. It is therefore up to you to format the equation appropriately (if they overrun the margin.) This typically requires some creative use of an eqnarrayto get elements shifted to a new line to align nicely.

Not yet mentioned here, another choice is environment `aligned`

, again from package `amsmath`

:

\documentclass{article} \usepackage{amsmath} \begin{document} \begin{equation} \begin{aligned} A & = B + C\\ & = D + E + F\\ & = G \end{aligned} \end{equation} \end{document}

I want to write my paper in latex format but do not have right code to split that equation.

I think I usually used eqnarray or something. It lets you say

and it will be aligned by the & &... As pkaeding mentioned, it's hard to read, but when you've got an equation thats that long, it's gonna be hard to read no matter what... (The * makes it not have an equation number, IIRC)

**Aligning equations with amsmath,** The amsmath package provides a handful of options for displaying equations. are really long, or if you have to include several equations in the same line. Use the split environment to break an equation and to align it in columns, just as if� Displaying long equations. For equations longer than a line use the multline environment. Insert a double backslash to set a point for the equation to be broken. The first part will be aligned to the left and the second part will be displayed in the next line and aligned to the right.

**[PDF] The autobreak package,** A shortcoming of such 'manual' approaches is that line breaks have to (semi-) automatic line breaking of long formulae within LATEX1. When your document contains long equations over multiple pages, you might want. Put the equation, all of it into the right box of the eqn array (there are two of them) At the point that you want to break the equation, press CTRL+Enter. This splits your equation into two lines. If you have a numbered equation array, toggle the upper line with: Alt+M Shift+N to remove the equation number, leaving you with only one equation on two lines.

It would be nice to confirm that you have the correct LaTeX (like the RCE). Maybe show the LaTeX when you're editing between the \( and \) delimiters and render it as math when your cursor is outside the delimiters.

The number provided as an argument represents the priority of the command in a range of 0 to 4. (0 means it will be easily ignored and 4 means do it anyway).

##### Comments

- I would question if you really want to do that. Multi-line equations will be very difficult to read. Is it possible to break up your equation into multiple (shorter) equations?
- In my experience there can't be a newline inside multline en equation environments
- What is the align* environment good for, with respect to the align environment (with versus without asterisk) ?
- the asterisk tells it to omit numbers for the equation lines.
- f.y.i. the AMS recommends not using eqnarray environments because they "produce inconsistent spacing of the equal signs and make no attempt to prevent overprinting of the equation body and equation number." -- not really applicable here, but good to know; a good ol' align environment can take care of most such circumstances.
- Is there a way to make this one number the equation also? If I insert a label, I can reference it by number, but it's not printed on the right side of the equation.
- This is what worked the best for me. The {split} function was the key.
