You can use a tabular-environment. – Marco Daniel Mar 31 '13 at 15:04
or alignat from amsmath, or perhaps multicols – cmhughes Mar 31 '13 at 15:14
Thank you guys! How can I control position of the left edge of the table? – Vladimir Mar 31 '13 at 15:37

You can use a tabular-environment or alignat from amsmath, or perhaps multicols.

For indentation check this answer.

You solution is not very satisfactory : it forces to use inline math formatting. For instance, I want plain regular \frac not the tiny one that comes with the inline math environment which we must use within a tabular. – Lærne Oct 31 '14 at 18:00
Contact @cmhughes (comment section of the question), because that's a CW answer using his comment... or maybe you should create a new question based on this one. – masu Nov 3 '14 at 8:39
