Displaystyle Latex Help

  1. Jul 31, 2009 #1

    In the following, I need [tex]1\leq m\leq M[/tex] to be exactly under "arg", How can I do that?

    [tex]I=\text{arg}_{\substack{1\leq m\leq M}[/tex]

    Thanks in advance

    Hi S_David,

    How about this:

    Code (Text):

    I=\mathop{\mbox{arg}}_{1\le m \le M}
    which gives:

    [tex]I=\mathop{\mbox{arg}}_{1\le m \le M}[/tex]

    Thanks alphysicist for replying, but the code you gave did not work in my case. I forgot to mention this expression is an in-line expression, I don't know if this has anything to do with the problem.

    Best regards

    You can force it by using displaystyle:

    Code (Text):

    I=\displaystyle{\mathop{\mbox{arg}}_{1\le m \le M}}
    but of course that will put extra spacing between the lines of your text.

    Why do you want this to appear under "arg" anyway? If you want the minimum or maximum value over a range of arguments, then it would be underneath "min" or "max," and if you want the argument that results in the minimum or maximum of the expression, then it should be "argmin" or "argmax", but what the heck is just "arg" ?

    I neither want the argument of max nor min values, I need the argument of an arbitrary value m. Of cource, I didn't write the whole expression because it doesn't affect what I want.
