    Note that \bordermatrix is a very special construction, which shouldn't generally be used, unless you really need to add names for rows and columns; the extra vertical space you get is exactly the space reserved for the column names. – egreg Aug 25 '14 at 11:05

You better use pmatrix:

\documentclass[11pt,a4paper]{article}
\usepackage{blindtext}
\usepackage{amsmath}

\begin{document}
Preliminary Theorem 1.1.2. If $(\lambda_1,\dots,\lambda_n)$, $(\mu_1,\dots,\mu_n)$,
and $(k_1,\dots,k_n)$ are arrangements of $(1,\dots,n),$ then
\begin{align*}
&ϵ\begin{pmatrix}
     \lambda_1,\dots,\lambda_n \\
     \mu_1,\dots,\mu_n
  \end{pmatrix}=ϵ
    \begin{pmatrix}
    \lambda_{k_1},\dots,\lambda_{k_1} \\
    \mu_{k_1},\dots,\mu_n
  \end{pmatrix}.
\end{align*}
\end{document}

  • Use \dots and not ... – egreg Aug 25 '14 at 10:54
  • @egreg Yes, I always overlook something!, may be I am too focussed ;-). Thanks for noting. – user11232 Aug 25 '14 at 11:01
  • To Harish, Thank you so very much for your demonstration. The BEST part of your illustration is the introduction of pmatrix. I did not know it for I am new to LaTex. Once again thank you! – Nisal Kevin Kotinkaduwa Aug 25 '14 at 11:23
