As far as LaTeX is concerned, I believe that $...$ and \(...\) are
entirely equivalent (but you have to use \[...\], and not $$...$$ for
displayed material). That's from reading Lamport's book: sec 3.3 and
Appendix E (the "Miscellaneous" section); I have not checked the code.

I prefer \(...\) and (iirc) sometimes that has worked when $...$ has
not, but I don't remember the context; afaik those (rare) situations
were deemed to be bugs in the exporter and have all been fixed.
