Trig functions look better like this, double click to see my code.

Leave a space... you can use '~'

TeX has four types of spaces available in math mode. They are \, (thin space), \: (medium space), \; (thick space) and \! (thin negative space). In practice, there are not many occasions when you need to use these spacings. The spacing provided automatically by TeX is usually optimal. The only times when I use manual spacing are in integrals and in modular arithmetic.
