Short Math Guide for MEX Michael Downes American Mathematical Society Version 109 20020322 currently available at httpwwwams orgtexshortmathguidehtml 1 Introduction This is a concise summary of recommended features in ETEX and a couple of extension packages for Writing math formulasi Readers needing greater depth of detail are referred to the sources listed in the bibliography especially Lamport LUG AMUG LFG LGG and LC A certain amount of familiarity with standard ETEX terminology is assumed if your memory needs refreshing on the ETEX meaning of command optional argument environment package and so forth see Lamportli The features described here are available to you if you use ETEX with two extension packages published by the American Mathematical Society amssymb and amsmathi Thus the source le for this document begins with documentclassfart icle us epac kagefams symb amsmat h The amssymb package might be omissible for documents whose math symbol usage is rela tively modest the easiest way to test this is to leave out the amssymb reference and see if any math symbols in the document produce Unde ned control sequence7 messages any noteworthy features found in other packages are not covered here see Section 10 Regarding math symbols please note especially that the list given here is not intended to be comprehensive but to illustrate such symbols as users will normally nd already present in their ETEX system and usable without installing any additional fonts or doing other setup work If you have a need for a symbol not shown here you will probably want to consult The Comprehensive E ITEX Symbols List Pakin http www ctan orgt exarchiveinfosymbolscomprehens ivei 2 Inline math formulas and displayed equations 21 THE FUNDAMENTALS Entering and leaving math mode in ETEX is normally done with the following commands and environments inline formulas displayed equations unnumbered beg inequat ion unnumbered endequat ion beginfequat ion automatically i i i numbered endfequat ion Note Alternative environments begin nath V V V end nath begindisp1aymath V V V endfdisplaymath are seldom needed in practice Using the plain TEX notation v V V for displayed equations is not recome mended Although it is not expressly forbidden in ETEX it is not documented anywhere in the ETEX book as being part of the ETEX command set and it interferes with the proper operation of various features such as the f leqn option Environments for handling equation groups and multiline equations are shown in Table l Short Math Guide for EMEX version 109 200203 22 2 Table 1 Multiline

1121 a22 1122 C22 Note 1 The split environment is something of a special case It is a subordinate environment that can be used as the contents of an equation environment or the contents of one line in a multipleequation structure such as align or gather Note 2 The eqnarray and eqnarrayxoK environments described in Lamport are not recommended because they produce inconsistent spacing of the equal signs and make no attempt to prevent overprinting of the equation body and equation number Short Math Guide for ETEX version 109 200203 22 3 22 AUTOMATIC NUMBERING AND CROSS REFERENCING To get an autonumbered equa tion7 use the equation environment to assign a label for crossreferencing7 use the 1abe1 comman beginequation1abe1reio endequation To get a crossreference to an autonumbered equation7 use the eqref command using equations eqrefax1 and eqrefb22 we can derive The above example would produce something like using equations 32 and 357 we can derive In other words7 eqrefax1 is equivalent to reffax1l To give your equation numbers the form mm sectionnumberequationnumber use the numberwithin command in the preamble of your document numberwithinequationsect ion For more details on custom numbering schemes see Lamport7 6l37 Cl8l4ll The subequat ions environment provides a convenient way to number equations in a group with a subordinate numbering scheme For example7 supposing that the current equation number is 217 write beginequation1abe1first abc endequation some intervening text beginsubequations1abe1grp beginalign aampbc1abe1second dampefg1abe1third hampij1abe1fourth endfalign endfsubequat ions to get a b 5 29 some intervening text a b 5 210a defg leOb h i j 210C By putting a 1abe1 command immediately after beginfsubequat ions you can get a reference to the parent number eqrefgrp from the above example would produce 210 while eqrefsecond would produce 210a 3 Math symbols and math fonts Sill CLASSES OF MATH SYMBOLS The symbols in a math formula fall into different classes that correspond more or less to the part of speech each symbol would have if the formula were expressed in words Certain spacing and positioning cues are traditionally used for the different symbol classes to increase the readability of formulas Short Math Guide for ETEX version 109 200203 22 4 Class Description number 39 part of speech Examples 0 Ord Simpleordinary noun A 0 39i39 00 1 Op pre x operator 2 H f 2 Bin binary operator conjunction U 3 Rel relationcomparison verb lt C 4 Open leftopening delimiter 5 Close rightclosing delimiter l 6 Pun post Xpunctuation i l Note 1 The distinction in TEX between class 0 and an additional class 7 has to do only with font selection issues and is immaterial here Note 2 Symbols of class Bin notably the minus Sign 7 are automatically coerced to class 0 no space if they do not have a suitable left operan V The spacing for a few symbols follows tradition instead of the general rule although is semantically speaking of class 2 we write 162 with no space around the slash rather than k 2 And compare plq plq no space with pmid q p l q class3 Spacing The proper way to de ne a new math symbol is discussed in E TEXZE font selection LFGli It is not really possible to give a useful synopsis here because one needs rst to the 39C 39 of font 39 32 SOME SYMBOLS INTENTIONALLY OMITTED HERE The following math symbols that are mentioned in the ETEX book Lamport are intentionally omitted from this discussion because they are superseded by equivalent symbols when the amssymb package is loaded If you are using the amssymb package anyway the only thing that you are likely to gain by using the alternate name is an unnecessary increase in the number of fonts used by your document Box see square D Diamond see 1ozenge ltgt 1eadsto see rightsquigarrow w Join see bowt ie gtlt1 1hd see vartriangleleft lt1 unlhd see trianglelefteq 1 rhd see vartriangleright D unrhd see trianglerighteq E Furthermore there are many7 many additional symbols available for ETEX use above and beyond the ones included here This list is not intended to be comprehensive For a much more comprehensive list of symbols including nonmathematically oriented ones such as phonetic alphabetic or dingbats see The Comprehensive LATEX Symbols List Pakin http www ctan orgt exarchiveinfosymbolscomprehens ivei 33 LATIN LETTERS AND ARABIC NUMERALS The Latin letters are simple symbols class 0 The default font for them in math formulas is italici ABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUVWXYZ abodefghij klmnopqrstuvwzyz When adding an accent to an i

EZEX version 109 200203 22 5 34 GREEK LETTERS Like the Latin letters the Greek letters are simple symbols class 0 For obscure historical reasons the default font for lowercase Greek letters in math formu las is italic while the default font for capital Greek letters is uprightroman In other elds such as physics and chemistry however the typographical traditions are somewhat different The capital Greek letters not present in this list are the letters that have the same appearance as some Latin letter A for Alpha B for Beta and so on In the list of lowercase letters there is no omicron because it would be identical in appearance to Latin 0 In practice the Greek letters that have Latin lookalikes are seldom used in math formulas to avoid confusion F Gamma 1 alpha 5 xi F digamma A Delta 6

comprehensive math font switching are commonly available in a typical ETEX setupi Here are the results of applying various font switches to a wide range of math symbols when the standard set of Computer Modern fonts is in user It can be seen that the only symbols that respond correctly to all of the font switches are the uppercase Latin letters In fact nearly all math symbols apart from Latin letters remain unaffected by font switches and although the lowercase Latin letters capital Greek letters and numerals do respond properly to some font switches they produce bizarre results for other font switchesi Use of alternative math font sets such as Lucida New Math may ameliorate the situation somewhatl default mathbf mathsf mathit mathcal mathbb mathfrak X X X X X X as z x X 9 n 1 0

reasons using the primitive fraction commands over atop above in a ETEX doc ument is not recommended see egv amsmathfaq 54 CONTINUED FRACTIONS The continued fraction 1 54 1 7 can be obtained by typing cfrac1sqrt2 cfrac1sqrt2 cfrac1sqrt2dotsb This produces betterlooking results than straightforward use of frac Left or right placement of any of the numerators is accomplished by using cfrac 1 or cfrac 1 instead of cfrac 6 Delimiters 61 DELIMITER SIZES Unless you indicate otherwise delimiters in math formulas will remain at the standard size regardless of the height of the enclosed material To get larger sizes you can either select a particular size using a big prefix see below or you can use 1eft and right pre xes for autosizing The automatic delimiter sizing done by 1eft and right has two limitations First it is applied mechanically to produce delimiters large enough to encompass the largest contained item and second the range of sizes has fairly large quantum jumps This means that an expression that is in nitesimally too large for a given delimiter size will get the next larger size a jump of 6pt or so Spt top and bottom in normalsized text There are two or three situations where the delimiter size is commonly adjusted These adjustments are done using the following commands Delimiter size text 1eft bigl Bigl biggl Biggl size right bigr Bigr biggr Biggr Result 023 M3 W3 03 Short Math Guide for EZEX version 109 200203 22 14 The rst kind of adjustment is done for cumulative operators with limits such as summation signs With 1eft and right the delimiters usually turn out larger than necessary and using the Big or bigg sizes instead gives better results 17 117 E ai E zij versus a i J39 i p 117 E zij j bigg1sumi aiBigl1vertsumj xijBigrrvert pbiggr quot1p The second kind of situation is clustered pairs of delimiters where 1eft and r ight make them all the same size because that is adequate to cover the encompassed material but what you really want is to make some of the delimiters slightly larger to make the nesting easier to see albl 4a2b2a2bl t alb2 Versus albl a2b2a2bl t alb2f 1efta1 b1 a2 b2right 1efta2 b1 a1 b2right quadt extversusquad big1a1 b1 a2 b2bigr bigla2 b1 a1 b2bigr The third kind of situation is a slightly oversize object in running text such as I where the delimiters produced by 1eft and right cause too much line spreading In that case bigl and bigr can be used to produce delimiters that are larger than the base size but still able to t within the normal line spacing IWI 62 VERTICAL BAR NOTATIONS The use of the I character to produce paired delimiters is not recommended There is an ambiguity about the directionality of the symbol that will in rare cases produce incorrect spacing egq Ik I I kI produces IkI I E kI Using 1vert for a left vert bar77 and rvert for a right vert bar77 whenever they are used in pairs will prevent this problem compare IEkI produced by 1vert krvert For double bars there are analogous 1Vert rVert

OF LIMITS The limits on integrals sums and similar symbols are placed either to the side of or above and below the base symbol depending on convention and context ETEX has rules for automatically choosing one or the other and most of the time the results are satisfactory In the event they are not there are three ETEX commands that can be used to in uence the placement of the limits 1imits nolimits displaylimits Compare 25 I 25t I iT TztiltX0 WM and irirztlltXo int absx X Z RX 0 int1imitsabsxxztltXO The 1imits command should follow immediately after the base symbol to which it applies and its meaning is shift the following subscript andor superscript to the limits position regardless of the usual convention for this symbol nolimits means to shift them to the side instead and displaylimits which might be used in de ning a new kind of base symbol means to use standard positioning as for the sum comman See also the description of the intlimits and nosumlimits options in AMUG

subscript or superscript for example sumsubstack Z Pz j 01e i1e m ogigm oltjltn MK Pij 84 THE sideset COMMAND Therels also a command called sideset for a rather special purpose putting symbols at the subscript and superscript corners of a symbol like 2 or Note The sideset command is only designed for use with large operator symbols with ordinary symbols the results are unreliable With sideset you can write sideset Z nEn sumnltktextn odd nEn nltk n odd The extra pair of empty braces is explained by the fact that sideset has the capability of putting an extra symbol or symbols at each corner of a large operator to put an asterisk at each corner of a product symbol you would type sideset prod Hik Short Math Guide for ETEX version 109 200203 22 16 9 Changing the size of elements in a formula The TATEX mechanisms for changing font size inside a math formula are completely different from the ones used outside math formulas If you try to make something larger in a formula with one of the text commands such as 1arge or huge 1arge you will get a warning message Command 1arge invalid in math mode Such an attempt however often indicates a misunderstanding of how ETEX math symbols work If you want a symbol analogous to a summation sign in its typographical properties then in principle the best way to achieve that is to de ne it as a symbol of type mathop with the standard ETEX DeclareMathSymbol command see LFGM In this particular example it is currently unlikely that you will be able to lay your hands on a math font with a suitable textsizedisplaysize pair but that is probably best understood as a problem of inadequate fonts not as a ETEX problem Consider the expression Engt0 2 fracsumn gt O z n ngkgn 74k prod11eq k1eq n 1q k Using dfrac instead of frac wouldnlt change anything in this case if you want the sum and product symbols to appear full size you need the displaystyle command 22 ngto fracdisplaysty1esumn gt O z n H 174k displaysty1eprod11eq k1eq n 1q k 13kg And if you want fullsize symbols but with limits on the side use the nolimits command a so Zngt0 Zn fracdisplaysty1esumnolimitsngt 0 z n H 17 qk disp1aysty1eprodnolimits11eq k1eq n 1q k 1 k n There are similar commands textstyle scriptstyle and scriptscriptstyle to force ETEX to use the symbol size and spacing that would be applied in respectively inline math firstorder subscript or secondorder order subscript even when the current context would normally yield some other size Note These commands belong to a special class of commands referred to in the ETEX book as declarations In
