Vim for Math Symbols

Vim for Math Symbols

I'm trying to use vim to take math notes in a game theory class. I checked out digraphs, and they are great for entering math symbols, but there's some things that it doesn't cover.

I think the answer is that there is no way to do this without writing with special syntax and then compiling later into pretty syntax. This is not what I was looking for.

"I don't think it's crazy to take math notes in vim. I do. I use digraphs and I've kept a small list of the most frequent ones I use. I occasionally use the superscript digraphs <ctrl>k0S for the superscript 0 in x^0. As far as when I need to insert an x with a tilde over it, I guess I resort to tex. Although remember you can input characters directly with their unicode value by pressing <ctrl>v in insert mode, try
<ctrl>vu0127 to input ħ (h bar). You can look up unicodes for many common letters with accessories like bars and hats then input their values like so."
