If you're one of those "maths people" then no, nothing but LaTeX is
probably going to float your boat. For what I do I am yet to exhaust
what can be done in Google Docs.

Feast your eyes on this Spherical Harmonic decomposition of an MRI

Yes, I'll admit it, I'm now a point and click equation editor.
Interestingly you used to be able to paste *tex code into google doc
equations but the functionality disappeared, people are asking for it
to come back so it might happen.
