what is the command for the diagonal/slant elipsis (...)?
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.
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
