I would like to place a lower limit under two consecutive \sums, somewhere in between. So I have \sum_{j=1}^{\infty}\sum_{k=1}^{\infty} and would like to place j>k in the lower limit between the two sums. I believe the multiple integral operator has this kind of functionality.

Wouldn't \sum_{j=1}^{\infty}\sum_{k=1}^{j} do? – Caramdir Aug 7 '11 at 2:52

Something like:



Looks like this:

Or if you want it on the same line as j=1 and k=1, then maybe:

\mathop{\sum^{\infty}\sum^{\infty}}_{j=1\ j>k\ k=1}

Thanks! The first is exactly what I was looking for. – asar Aug 7 '11 at 2:42

There is an equivalent alternative.
