Recently I'm writing a calc program, on android. As a frequent LaTeX user, it comes to be compelling to use LaTeX rendering in displaying the inputs and outputs.

Is there any possibilities to use a minimal/basic TeX distribution to render simple equations including sin/cos/tan, fractions etc.?

I've heard of BasicTeX but it seems far too huge, and it may not work on android system, I suppose?

    I don't think it's a duplicate---it's only asking to typeset equations that, while an important draw of TeX systems, is only a portion of the picture. As for the Q, instead of looking for a minimal TeX distribution, I would take a look at MathJax for this particular case. Hop on over to Math.SE for some examples. – Sean Allred Aug 2 '13 at 3:45

As Android software is written in Java, you may try something like JLaTeXMath, which is a Java library that renders LaTeX equations.
