# Aligning a split up equation not at equal sign

I currently have the following equation:

\begin{align}
\begin{split}
\left| \Psi \left( t \right) \right\rangle _{I}^{3}&=-\frac{1}{{{\hbar}^{2}}}\int_{0}^{t}{\hat{H}_{1}^{I}\left( t' \right)\,}\left( \int_{0}^{t}{\hat{H}_{1}^{I}\left( t'' \right)dt''} \right)dt' \notag \\
& =-\frac{1}{\hbar }\int_{0}^{t}{\hat{H}_{1}^{I}\left( t' \right)\,}\left( -\frac{g}{\Delta }\left( -{{{\hat{A}}}_{+}}\left( {{e}^{-i\Delta t'}}-1 \right)+{{{\hat{A}}}_{-}}\left( {{e}^{i\Delta t'}}-1 \right) \right) \right)dt' \notag \\
& =\frac{1}{\hbar }\int_{0}^{t}{\hbar g\left( {{{\hat{A}}}_{+}}{{e}^{-i\Delta t'}}+{{{\hat{A}}}_{-}}{{e}^{i\Delta t'}} \right)\,}\left( -\frac{g}{\Delta }\left( -{{{\hat{A}}}_{+}}\left( {{e}^{-i\Delta t'}}-1 \right)+{{{\hat{A}}}_{-}}\left( {{e}^{i\Delta t'}}-1 \right) \right) \right)dt' \notag \\
&=-\frac{{{g}^{2}}}{\Delta }\Bigg[ -\frac{1}{2i\Delta }{{e}^{-2i\Delta t'}}{{{\hat{A}}}_{+}}{{{\hat{A}}}_{+}}+\frac{1}{i\Delta }{{e}^{-i\Delta t'}}{{{\hat{A}}}_{+}}{{{\hat{A}}}_{+}}-{{{\hat{A}}}_{+}}{{{\hat{A}}}_{-}}-\frac{1}{i\Delta }{{e}^{-i\Delta t'}}{{{\hat{A}}}_{+}}{{{\hat{A}}}_{-}} \\ &+{{{\hat{A}}}_{-}}{{{\hat{A}}}_{+}}-\frac{1}{i\Delta }{{e}^{i\Delta t'}}{{{\hat{A}}}_{-}}{{{\hat{A}}}_{+}}-\frac{1}{2i\Delta }{{e}^{2i\Delta t'}}{{{\hat{A}}}_{-}}{{{\hat{A}}}_{+}}+\frac{1}{i\Delta }{{e}^{i\Delta t'}}{{{\hat{A}}}_{-}}{{{\hat{A}}}_{+}} \Bigg]_{0}^{t} \notag
\end{split}
\end{align}


From this I get 5 lines, where the last two are split up. But the last one is split up inside a bracket. My question is, can I align the last line, with the + sign, with the first minus sign, inside the bracket, instead of aligning with the = sign ?

Please always post complete documents, not just fragments.

You can use \phantom

(I'm assuming this is cut down from some larger example, as there is no need to have an alignment just consisting of a split)

Sorry for my mistakes, I will remember :) Don't know what you mean by larger example though ? The last line, if not split up, will go outside my paper. And then I just Googled how to split up equations inside brackets, which was done how I wrote it. So, I don't know any other way to do it :) But it seems that your suggestion was just what I needed. Thank you :) – Denver Dang May 28 '13 at 21:54
split is for splitting things up within a larger display. If you delete \begin{split} and \end{split} and change align to align* you get essentially the same display. – David Carlisle May 28 '13 at 22:02
Hmmm, did not know that :) Thank you very much ! – Denver Dang May 28 '13 at 22:07
