In summary, The conversation discusses how to properly subscript variables in category theory and functors, specifically in the Linear and Abstract Algebra Forum thread. The suggested solution is to use f_{\Large_P} and g_{\Large_P} to achieve the desired appearance. The conversation ends with Peter thanking Mark for his assistance.

I have just finished a post on category theory and functors in the Linear and Abstract Algebra Forum ... post #3 in the thread ...Thread: https://mathhelpboards.com/linear-abstract-algebra-14/functor-any-category-preorder-category-awodey-exercise-8-chapter-1-a-24883.htmlI wanted to use f subscript P and g subscript P in the text ... but the letter P looks as if it is concatenated with f and g ... how do I get these variables to look as if they are genuinely subscripted ...The variables (actually arrows) look like $$\displaystyle f_P$$ and $$\displaystyle g_P$$ ... basically I would like to shift the letter P lower ...

Any ideas ...

Peter

Try something like:

f_{\Large_P}

to get:

$$\displaystyle f_{\Large_P}$$

Thanks for the help, Mark ...

## 1. What are subscripts that look like subscripts?

Subscripts that look like subscripts are characters or symbols that are written slightly below or to the right of the main text. They are often used in mathematical or scientific notations to represent a specific variable or element in an equation or formula.

## 2. How are subscripts that look like subscripts different from regular subscripts?

The main difference between subscripts that look like subscripts and regular subscripts is their placement. Regular subscripts are written below the main text, while subscripts that look like subscripts can be placed anywhere around the main text, such as above, to the right, or even slightly below.

## 3. Why are subscripts that look like subscripts used in scientific notation?

Subscripts that look like subscripts are used in scientific notation to represent a specific variable or element in an equation or formula. This makes it easier to read and understand complex scientific notations, as each subscript can be associated with a specific part of the equation or formula.

## 4. How are subscripts that look like subscripts formatted?

Subscripts that look like subscripts are usually written in a smaller font size and are often italicized. They can also be written in different colors or styles to distinguish them from the main text.

## 5. Can subscripts that look like subscripts be used in any type of scientific notation?

Yes, subscripts that look like subscripts can be used in various types of scientific notations, such as chemical formulas, mathematical equations, and physical constants. They are a common and important part of scientific notation and are used to represent specific variables or elements in a concise and organized manner.
