Bigger Sum
 
:rolleyes: I am trying to learn how to use the AMSMATH package. Can anyone tell me how to change the size of [tex] \sum [/tex] to make it bigger?
thanks

In a TeX file, write $\displaystyle \sum$ rather than $\sum$. This will give you the difference between the following two:

[itex]\sum[/itex]

[tex]\sum[/tex]
