From what I see here:
http://tinymce.moxiecode.com/examples/example_06.php

it seems that if your textarea has name="myEditor" then you will need to do:
var ed = tinyMCE.get('content');

//then to find out the value of it
alert( ed.getContent() );

//then if you want to change the value of it
ed.setContent('Hello');

The "Full Featured" example:
http://tinymce.moxiecode.com/examples/full.php

shows you all the supported features. Mathematical symbols are not an option. TinyMCE is an HTML editor. HTML does not support Mathematical symbols (they never thought about that until later - then they came up with MathML - http://www.w3.org/Math/). You may want to ask the TinyMCE folks if they intend to add that support.
