Supremum of the infimum

Is there a way to make the subscripts appear evenly in the following code: \sup_{a\in A}\inf_{b\in B}?

That is, so that a\in A doesn't appear lower than b\in B (can't post a sample pic - need more than 10 rep points)?

Thanks for any help in advance!


Are you referring to inline or display math? In display mode, the mathtools package provides a command to adjust the "limits"


\[\adjustlimits\inf_{a\in A}\sup_{b\in B} f(a,b)\]

adjusted limits

  • Yes, I was referring to display math. Your solution is great, thank you!
