Supremum of the infimum

Is there a way to make the subscripts appear evenly in the following code: \sup_{a\in A}\inf_{b\in B}?

That is, so that a\in A doesn't appear lower than b\in B (can't post a sample pic - need more than 10 rep points)?

Thanks for any help in advance!

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

I've duped here based on the particular situation but also note tex.stackexchange.com/questions/3223/… – Joseph Wright Dec 2 '11 at 8:11

Are you referring to inline or display math? In display mode, the mathtools package provides a command to adjust the "limits"


\[\adjustlimits\inf_{a\in A}\sup_{b\in B} f(a,b)\]

adjusted limits

Yes, I was referring to display math. Your solution is great, thank you! – William Jul 5 '11 at 13:06
