I am trying to use \max with two arguments like so:

\max_{0 \leq k \leq n, 0 \leq l \leq n}

But I want to have the

0 \leq l \leq n below the 0 \leq k \leq n

not next to it.

How do I do this?

  • Welcome to TeX.SX! Please help us to help you and add a minimal working example (MWE) that illustrates your problem. It will be much easier for us to reproduce your situation and find out what the issue is when we see compilable code, starting with \documentclass{...} and ending with \end{document}. A tip: If you indent lines by 4 spaces or enclose words in backticks `, they'll be marked as code

  • the answer is \max_{\substack{0 \leq k \leq n \\ 0 \leq l \leq n}} Jul 28 '14 at 7:38
  • I've rolled back the edit here: the site structure deliberately keeps questions and answers separate, and in this case as a dupe the answer is to read the linked question. (Note: the model for StackExchange is that questions/answers should have value beyond just the OPs problem.)

  • The reason I edited is because the linked duplicate is only about using two lines of \text in a subscript. Getting from there to the solution of my specific problem was, at least for me, not entirely trivial. I was just hoping to save someone with a similar problem some time. Jul 30 '14 at 7:43
  • @VincentPfenninger You could always add a new answer there, if different enough, or make a suggested edit to the relevant answer. Or leave a comment on that answer. That way, all the relevant information will be in one place for people to find.
