How do I get the two circles to be on the same height? I tried the following

\newcommand{\sss}{\;\;\;\;\;\;\:}
\overset{\circ}{R}_{\mu\nu\sigma\lambda}\overset{\circ\sss}{R^{\mu\nu\sigma\lambda}} 
\overset{\circ}{R}_{\mu\nu\sigma\lambda}\overset{\circ}{R}^{\mu\nu\sigma\lambda}

Any suggestions?

There is a command \mathring in LaTeX, try

\documentclass{article}
\begin{document} 
\begin{displaymath}
\mathring{R}_{\mu\nu\sigma\lambda} \mathring{R}^{\mu\nu\sigma\lambda}
\end{displaymath}
\end{document}

  • You either need to add amsmath or eliminate the *. – Steven B. Segletes Mar 17 '16 at 17:09

    @StevenB.Segletes: Thanks, I changed it to LaTeX's displaymath – jk - Reinstate Monica Mar 17 '16 at 17:11

Set the superscript outside the regular setting:

enter image description here

\documentclass{article}

\usepackage{amsmath}
\newcommand{\sss}{\;\;\;\;\;\;\:}

\begin{document} 

\[
  \overset{\circ}{R}_{\mu\nu\sigma\lambda}\overset{\circ\sss}{R^{\mu\nu\sigma\lambda}} \qquad
  \overset{\circ}{R}_{\mu\nu\sigma\lambda}\overset{\circ}{R}^{\mu\nu\sigma\lambda} \qquad
  \overset{\circ}{R}_{\mu\nu\sigma\lambda}\overset{\circ}{R}{}^{\mu\nu\sigma\lambda}
\]

\end{document}
