Hello there, allow me to add my own words of welcome. Please read the link @AndrewSwann has given on how to construct a minimal working example. For one thing, it should be minimal, and I hope you would not disagree that yours isn't particularly minimal! It's also helpful if you include your MWE as a code snippet. Highlight it and click on the appropriate button (the one like { }), or add four spaces before each line. This will help you to get the answers you need, at the moment, your "minimal" working example is just not possible to work with!

comment How do you create a set in LateX?
Also, how powerful is MathJaX? I mean it's great for what it's intended for: displaying maths online. Well, I say great, I think it can be a li'l ugly, but that's just an opinion. But this is a TeX site (where MathJaX is off topic) and we do a lot more than just the maths typesetting element of LaTeX. I think it'd be of surprisingly limited use here; MathJaX isn't a TeX renderer per se, is it? It uses TeX syntax, of course, but otherwise

comment Undefined Control Sequence-Equation
Just a piece of advice - I really wouldn't recommend adding space by using \hspace like that. Try one of LaTeX's other spacing commands for inserting predefined spaces tex.stackexchange.com/questions/74353/…

comment How do you create a set in LateX?
Sorry @MarcvanDongen, didn't realise. If nothing else, it demonstrates quite nicely something I overlooked because I never read about it, because I just assumed I knew how to do it, because of the "dive right in" approach I took :P

comment How do you create a set in LateX?
Welcome from me as well! My friend, it's no wonder you're not getting on with LaTeX if you haven't - haven't been taken through the basics (whether by a person, or a book). Myself, I actually got started with the wikibooks LaTeX manual (en.wikibooks.org/wiki/LaTeX), which I think is a very good place to start, but there are quite possibly better resources out there - @cfr's seem good. But if you don't understand the principles of LaTeX, you're not going to have an easy time with it. Not that learning by doing isn't the way to go - it is, but you have to understand 1st principles.

comment Indents in scientific articles (ACM)
This is, unless I'm woefully mistaken, actually the default LaTeX behaviour?? Have you, perhaps, got a template that loads \usepackage[parfill]{parskip} or something like that?

comment What is this symbol?
@Alenanno, you must have a steadier hand - or better skills with a trackpad - than me and the OP! :P

comment What is this symbol?
For what it's worth, detexify does know the symbol, although I had to click "show more" several times (probably at least five) before I found it in its suggestions. I'm not too surprised the OP couldn't find it, but it's worth noting that it is there. Possibly someone with a tablet and a stylus could have found it first time?

comment Issue with putting a bracket delimited matrix inside another matrix
Just a minor point, but I'm guessing that on line 9 you want \left[ not \left]

comment How to draw a chart with Diagonal Arrows?
I've suggested an edit to your post, replacing your original backtick syntax like this with "code sample" formatting. Highlight the whole code and click the "code sample" button ({}), or alternatively add four spaces before each line (the code sample button does this for you, but you can do it yourself). For a long sample of code such as yours, this is prettier and it adds syntax highlighting as well. Backticks are better for marking down individual commands/names that sort of thing, e.g. "the tabular environment is working"

converted backtick markdown to code sample for extended chunk of code - improves formatting and provides syntax highlighting

Just seen @DavidCarlisle's post. \[ ... \] will also work, although that will enter a displayed maths environment. Use \[ ... \] for displayed maths and $ ... $ or \( ... \) for in-line maths

comment Package for Not Equal to sign in latex
It doesn't look like you are in math mode, you will need to put $ ... $ around your equation, or \( ... \). Try $\mathbf{L}_{1} \cap \mathbf{L}_{i} \neq \mathbf{\Phi}$
