  • Syntax: \left(...\right) or ...
  • Ex.: $$2a\left(b+c\right)$$ gives


phi (lower case greek letter)

$$\phi$$ gives \phi

Phi (upper case greek letter)

$$\Phi$$ gives \Phi


$$x=\pi r^2$$ is x=\pi r^2

pi (lower case greek letter)

$$\pi$$ gives \pi

Pi (upper case greek letter)

$$\Pi$$ gives \Pi


$$+$$ is +

plus minus

$$a\pm~b$$ gives a\pm~b


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


  • 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 product symbol:

$$\bigprod_{i=k}^{n}$$   gives  



$$\prod_{i=k}^{n}$$   gives 


  • Use font size commands for a nicer picture:

$$\LARGE\bigprod_{\tiny{i=k}}^{\tiny{n}}$$   gives  



$$\large\prod_{\small{i=k}}^{\small{n}}$$   gives 


psi (lower case greek letter)

$$\psi$$ gives \psi
