infinity

$$\infty$$  gives \infty

integral

  • General syntax for symbols with a kind of lower and upper limits:

\symbolname_{lowerexpression}^{upperexpression}

  • In general, there are two ways how these lower and upper expressions can be placed: centered below and above the symbol or in a subscript / superscript manner. In the first case the symbol name is preceded by the word "big", in the second there is no prefix.
  • Syntax for integral symbol:

$$\bigint_{0}^{\infty}$$   gives  

\bigint_{0}^{\infty}

and

$$\int_{0}^{\infty}$$   gives 

\int_{0}^{\infty}

  • Use font size commands for a nicer picture:

$$\LARGE\bigint_{\small0}^{\small\infty}$$   gives  

\LARGE\bigint_{\small0}^{\small\infty}

and

$$\large\int_{\small0}^{\small\infty}$$   gives 

\large\int_{\small0}^{\small\infty}

iota (lower case greek letter)

$$\iota$$ gives \iota
