This kind of set up where equation array or some align environment, doesn't seem to work inside tabular environment event if math mode is enabled:

Eg : Align

(1+x)^2 &= 2\\
\frac{3}{4} &=\frac{x}{(1+y)}\\

Eg : Tabular

\alpha &\gamma\\
\beta &\delta

Eg : Nesting Align inside Tabular - doesn't work

Tabular {
(1+x)^2 &= 2\\
\frac{3}{4} &=\frac{x}{(1+y)}\\

\alpha &\gamma\\
\beta &$\test$

SOLUTION : Change align* to aligned environment.

    You can't encase an align* environment inside a tabular environment. Use an aligned environment instead. – Mico Apr 24 '16 at 18:34
  • Incidentally, your tabular declarations have no chance of being compilable. – Mico Apr 24 '16 at 18:39

On the way, how you doing, no.

  • tabular is in "text" mode. You need to change cells in "math" by use of $ ... $.
  • tabular should have defined column types, for example \begin{tabular}{cc}
  • including multiline equations is tricky. For example, instead \begin{align*} ... end{align} you should write something like $\begin{aligned} ...\end{aligned}$ from amsmath package.

For some concrete solution, prepare (not)working minimal example starting with \documentclass{...} necessary packages and encapsulate your code between \begin{document} and \end{document}.

    The aligned environment is actually provided by the amsmath package. – Mico Apr 24 '16 at 19:01
  • Yes, i messed with multlined. Sorry for wrong information, I will correct this. – Zarko Apr 24 '16 at 19:55
