    Sub-indexes

    I need to put an index under a symbol that is not \sum.

    For instance: {i=1} must go under the symbol, not as regular subscript.

    \sum_{i=1} does that but I need to see the same under other symbols.

    Any idea?

    Thanks.

    Hm, I'm not sure if this will answer your intended question but I know there are some commands where you can put a substrict "underneath" like
    "min" would be



    Latex code would be
    Code:
    \min_x
    Other commands include dim, gcd, Pr, inf, max, sup, limsup, liminf, and several more.

    Thanks, but...

    It's exactly what I need and I'm trying.

    Unfortunately what you suggested does not work on my LaTex.

    x comes out as regular, right subscript in \min_x

    Are you looking for something like this:

    {\rm {XYZ} \atop {x=5}} = \sqrt{\frac15}

    Maybe you can alter the size in the subscript line(?)

    Functions like \min \max \sum take the subscript below their symbol when the equation is within \[ ... \].

    They take it as a regular right-lower subscript when the equation is within $...$.

    Thanks for all replies!
