The following Latex code does not get recognised by Matlab when trying to publish in html:

\iint_{E}f\left(x,y\right)dxdy

The problem is undoubtedly the double integral; I get the following error: "Unable to interpret Latex string".

Could please someone help me? Why doesn't Matlab recognise this Latex command? It is perfectly fine with:

\int_{E}f\left(x,y\right)dx

Thanks in advance.

Two workarounds:

1) Use \int\int with negative spaces in between \!\!

text(.5,.5,'$\int\!\!\int_{E} f\left(x,y\right) dxdy$','interpreter','latex')

2) Or integrate your .html with MathJax. Here's the technical solution that explains how: How can I use MathJax to render the LaTeX math in the published output in MATLAB 7.10 (R2010a)?

The right and left parenthesis are maybe not recognized , try directly this command :

>>text(0.5,0.5,'\int_{E}f ( x,y ) dx dy')

waiting for an answer, so far you can try :

>>text(x,y,'the expression', 'interpreter','latex');

This is in essence a duplicate of http://www.mathworks.co.uk/matlabcentral/answers/86824-which-latex-characters-does-2013a-support-warning-unable-to-interpret-latex-string

\iint and \mathbb are defined by the AMS packages. Hereford they are not available. There are a number of hack solutions that I have posted, but it is probably best to avoid using anything that is not defined in the LaTeX kernel and article class (note that size commands are not available).
