This is what I wrote in my .tex file:

<\emph{Technician, View, Business_Plan, NULL}>$\rightarrow$ \emph{Deny}
<\emph{HR, View, Business_Plan, NULL}>$\rightarrow$ \emph{Deny}
<\emph{Manager, View, Business_Plan, NULL}>$\rightarrow$ \emph{Permit}

However, I got following compiling mistake:

! Missing $ inserted.
<inserted text> 
                $
l.303 ...ph{Technician, View, Business_Plan, NULL}
                                                  >$\rightarrow$ \emph{Deny}...

? 

Process has been terminated ...

I am almost mad by this weird error!!! Could anybody help me??

  • the ">" is the problematic character. it should either be gone or also placed in the $$ equation (you can't simply write > in text) Oct 18, 2013 at 10:15
  • Thanks for commenting. But after trying what you said(I just let the '>' go), the error still...

  • Because, similarly, there are more of those < and > characters appearing in text. Oct 18, 2013 at 10:24

    The underscores _ also have to be escaped (\_). It then works (in Business_Plan, that is). Welcome to the "wonderful" world of latex. Oct 18, 2013 at 10:31

You can't simply use "<" and ">" in text, one option would be to use $<$ and $>$.

Also, underscores can't appear in text, escape these: \_.
