I have to write some equations in latex, my Latex equation:

    \begin{align}
G _{a_{1},\ldots ,a_{k}}\ast_{b_{1},\ldots ,b_{k}} G^{\prime }=G^{\prime \prime }
\end{align}

How can I make the text like this: enter image description here

I use a \Centerstack to accomplish the stack. I place the top and bottom items in a \mathsf wrapper, and I introduce \coresym[scale]{symbol}{subscript/superscript} to center the core symbol and scale it as needed.

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{graphicx}
\usepackage[usestackEOL]{stackengine}
\newcommand\coresym[3][1]{\phantom{#3}\scalebox{#1}{$#2$}#3}
\setstackgap{L}{.9\baselineskip}
\stackMath
\begin{document}
\[
\Centerstack{\mathsf{G} \\ \coresym[1.3]{*}{^1_2} \\ \mathsf{G}} =  ax + b
\]
\end{document}

I also shrunk the stacking gap between items to .9\baselineskip, but that can be changed to suit. Here it is shrunk to .7\baselineskip.

You will probably want to make a macro to simplify. I wasn't sure what to make an argument and what to leave fixed.

math sym

\documentclass{standalone}
\usepackage{mathtools}
\usepackage{mathabx}% for \Asterisk

\begin{document}
$\displaystyle A = \vcenter{\baselineskip=0pt\hbox{$G$}\hbox{$\displaystyle *_{\scriptscriptstyle 2}^{\scriptscriptstyle 1}$}\hbox{$G$}}
= \vcenter{\baselineskip=0pt\hbox{$G$}\hbox{$\displaystyle \Asterisk_{\scriptscriptstyle 2}^{\scriptscriptstyle 1}$}\hbox{$G$}}$
\end{document}

Not sure about your intentions. Here's an attempt:

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{amsmath}

\newcommand{\xasterisk}[4]{%
  {\mathop{*^{#1}_{#2}}\limits^{#3}_{#4}}%
}

\begin{document}
\[
\xasterisk{1}{2}{\mathsf{G}}{\mathsf{G}}=ax+b
\]
\end{document}

Maybe something like this?

enter image description here

\documentclass{article}
\newcommand{\asteriskG}[4]{{\mathop{\ast}\limits
      _{\textsf{\bfseries\scriptsize#1}}
      ^{\textsf{\bfseries\scriptsize#2}} \mkern-2mu
    {}_{\scriptscriptstyle#3}
      ^{\scriptscriptstyle#4}}
}
\begin{document}
$\asteriskG{G}{G}{2}{1}=ax+b$
\end{document}

If you need a five-pointed instead of six-pointed star, use \star instead of \ast. How important is it that the two letters G be typeset in bold sans-serif style?
