## Main Question or Discussion Point

*Suppose I want to find the range of the set [tex] \left\{ {t_1 ,t_2 , \ldots ,t_n } \right\} [/tex], that is, the difference between the maximum and minimum values (of the elements that is!) in the set.

Do I have to fully write out,

[tex] \max \left\{ {t_1 ,t_2 , \ldots ,t_n } \right\} - \min \left\{ {t_1 ,t_2 , \ldots ,t_n } \right\} [/tex]

Or is there some nice shorthand/other notation to use ?

Maybe

[tex] \left\{ {t_1 ,t_2 , \ldots ,t_n } \right\}|_{\min }^{\max } [/tex] ??

*

(b/c writing out [itex] \max \left\{ {t_1 ,t_2 , \ldots ,t_n } \right\} - \min \left\{ {t_1 ,t_2 , \ldots ,t_n } \right\} [/itex] is quite

__something__like[tex] \left\{ {t_1 ,t_2 , \ldots ,t_n } \right\}|_{\min }^{\max } [/tex] ??

**Is there any symbol/notation/shorthand available to represent a set's range?**(b/c writing out [itex] \max \left\{ {t_1 ,t_2 , \ldots ,t_n } \right\} - \min \left\{ {t_1 ,t_2 , \ldots ,t_n } \right\} [/itex] is quite

__tedious__**!!**)
