I use Org for producing LaTeX (e.g., all of https://github.com/higham/what-is
is produced from Org source).
I'm finding that Org has trouble parsing some LaTeX math expressions and
I then have to make seemingly arbitrary tweaks to get it to parse correctly.
I thought this might be to do with something in my .emacs, but the same
problem happens with a bare bones Emacs. A simple example is this file:
#################################################################
# ex1a_bad.org
\[
\widehat{y} = f(x+\widehat{x}) + \Delta y,
\quad |\widehat{y}| \le \epsilon |y|, \;
|\widehat{x}| \le \epsilon |x|
\]
#################################################################
With emacs -q and
This is GNU Emacs 26.3 (build 1, x86_64-w64-mingw32) of 2019-08-29
org-version is a variable defined in 'org.el'. Its value is "9.1.9"
I get as the exported LaTeX:

\widehat{y} = f(x+\widehat{x}) + \(\Delta\) y,
\quad |\widehat{y}| \(\le\) \(\epsilon\) |y|, $\backslash$;
\begin{center}
\begin{tabular}{lll}
\widehat{x} & \(\le\) \(\epsilon\) & x\\
\end{tabular}
\end{center}
$\backslash$]
\end{document}
%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%
The backslashes are being interpreted literally and the pipes are being
interpreted as a table. Yet this version processes correctly:
#################################################################
# ex1a_good.org
\[
\widehat{y} = f(x+\widehat{x}) + \Delta y,
\quad |\widehat{y}| \le \epsilon |y|, \; |\widehat{x}| \le \epsilon |x|
\]
#################################################################
I have other simple examples like this one.
The same thing happens with my usual Emacs configuration, which uses Org 9.3.7.
