I find that if I typeset
$3 q$, I find the 3 and the q a bit too close to each other. I know that I can manually add a thin space by typing:
$3 \, q$.
However, I was wondering if there was a way to automate this, i.e. that every time a number precedes a variable, a thin space is added.
In other words I would like a thin space to be automatically added in
$5 q$, but not in
And is it possible to have added in
$p q$too? Do you recommend such practice between two variables that are multiplied? (I don't want to use
\cdotas it clutters the display.)
