comment issues with fractions
Thank you. As I see these outputs, I like the \left[-\tfrac{1}{2} , \infty\right) but I don't like either the \left[-\tfrac{1}{2} , \infty\right) (seems clumsy: the 1/2 is too big) or either of the two e^{} (too small). On balance I would perfer the e^{-\left(y+\frac{1}{2}\right)} but I would like to find some middle ground (if possible). Thanks again, much appreciated.

@egreg should I post a different question about fractions, as I foresee this exchange continuing? I appreciate your comments very much indeed, but I have questions about how to make my LaTeX better in this instance.

@egreg Actually, it was the \nicefrac after the exp that seemed better to me. This didn't look good to me: ` \exp \left( -y-\frac{1}{2} \right)`

@egreg thanks for your comment (much appreciated as I am a beginner in LaTeX). Do you think this is better $\left[-\frac{1}{2} , \infty \right)$ ?
