06 SYMBOLS

cdot (multiplication)

$$a\cdot~b$$ gives a\cdot~b

chi (lower case greek letter)

$$\chi$$ gives \chi

contour 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 the contour integral symbol:

$$\bigoint_{0}^{\infty}$$   gives  

\bigoint_{0}^{\infty}

and

$$\oint_{0}^{\infty}$$   gives 

\oint_{0}^{\infty}

  • Use font size commands for a nicer picture:

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

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

and

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

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

coproduct

  • 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.
  • Note: mimeTeX seems currently only to support the \bigcoprod command.
  • Syntax for coproduct symbol:

$$\bigcoprod_{i=k}^{n}$$   gives  

\bigcoprod_{i=k}^{n}

  • Use font size commands for a nicer picture:

$$\LARGE\bigcoprod_{\small{i=k}}^{\small~n}$$   gives  

\LARGE\bigcoprod_{\small{i=k}}^{\small~n}

Delta (upper case greek letter)

$$\Delta$$ gives \Delta

delta (lower case greek letter)

$$\delta$$ gives \delta

div (division)

$$x\div~y$$ gives x\div~y

epsilon (lower case greek letter)

$$\epsilon$$ gives \epsilon

eta (lower case greek letter)

$$\eta$$ gives \eta

gamma (lower case greek letter)

$$\gamma$$ gives \gamma
