# Typeset < > symbol [duplicate]

I am trying to typeset this < P > by writing it in math-mode using the symbols <> of the keypad. The problem is that the output in ugly. How can I typeset it so to have a nice output?

You need to use the angular parenthesis \langle and \rangle. In your case you have to write $\langle P \rangle$.
If you add \left\langle P \right\rangle they'll come out in the perfect size.
