Say set [tex]p = \left\{p_1, p_2,\ldots,p_n\right\}[/tex], how to notate [tex]p_n[/tex] without saying [tex]p_n[/tex], since I'm not explicitly writing out [tex]p[/tex] like that for a variety of reasons?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Like max([tex]p[/tex]) has the maximal element, what about last([tex]p[/tex]) or something? Is that recognized?
