nope. i mean, that triple dot which is oriented in diagonal way either up or down.. for example..

$\displaystyle {{{{{{{x^x}^x}^x}^x}^x}^x}^x}^x$

and i want to continue the power to infinity, instead of doing that, i'll just put an ellipsis upward right? so what is it? - Nov 2nd 2007, 05:16 AMJhevon

Hi,

there exist the following types of dots:

\ldots $\displaystyle \longrightarrow~\ldots$

\cdots $\displaystyle \longrightarrow~\cdots$

\vdots $\displaystyle \longrightarrow~\vdots$

\ddots $\displaystyle \longrightarrow~\ddots$

but I haven't found dots going diagonally up. - Nov 2nd 2007, 05:35 AMKrizalid
I actually found the command, but it's really nasty!

{\mathinner{\mkern2mu\raise1pt\hbox{.}\mkern2mu

\raise4pt\hbox{.}\mkern2mu\raise7pt\hbox{.}\mkern1 mu}}.

But I wouldn't type it, unless you save it in some place such that you can do copy & paste.

$\displaystyle

x^{x^{x^{.^{.^. } } } }

$

Or,

$\displaystyle x^{x^{.^{.^. } } }$

Applyin' the nasty code, we have

$\displaystyle x^{x^ {\mathinner{\mkern2mu\raise1pt\hbox{.}\mkern2mu

\raise4pt\hbox{.}\mkern2mu\raise7pt\hbox{.}\mkern1 mu}} }$

On more $\displaystyle x,$

$\displaystyle x^{x^{x^ {\mathinner{\mkern2mu\raise1pt\hbox{.}\mkern2mu

\raise4pt\hbox{.}\mkern2mu\raise7pt\hbox{.}\mkern1 mu}} } }$

Hope it helps :) - Nov 2nd 2007, 05:40 AMkalagota
