# Function with several arguments

I want to .tex the attached. I tried using \begin{pmatrix}.....\end{pmatrix}, but didn't give the required. Any help is much appreciated.

• Aren't 1 and 2 indices for φ? Apr 23, 2017 at 13:49

i think this is what you're looking for.

\documentclass{article}

\begin{document}
\usepackage{amsmath}
$2\phi_1 \biggl( \begin{matrix} az, a/z \\ ab \end{matrix} \biggm | q, \frac{bt}{a} \biggr)$

\end{document}


pmatrix won't work because of the vertical rule in the middle.

• i'm not sure about the size/position of the numerals accompanying the \phi. if you can tell me what they're supposed to look like, i'll fix this. Apr 23, 2017 at 14:10

Here's an implementation that changes size in text style and display style:

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{amsmath,mathtools,xparse}

\NewDocumentCommand{\hyper}{mommmm}{%
\IfValueTF{#2}{\prescript{}{#2}{#1}^{}_{#3}}{#2^{}_{#3}}%
\innerhyper{{#4}{#5}{#6}}
}

\makeatletter
\newcommand{\innerhyper}[1]{\mathpalette\inner@hyper{#1}}
\newcommand{\inner@hyper}[2]{\inner@@hyper{#1}#2}
\newcommand{\inner@@hyper}[4]{%
\ifx#1\displaystyle\!\left(\else\bigl(\fi
\begin{\ifx#1\displaystyle\else small\fi matrix}
#2 \\ #3
\end{\ifx#1\displaystyle\else small\fi matrix}
\ifx#1\displaystyle\;\middle|\;\else\bigm|\fi
#4
\ifx#1\displaystyle\right)\else\bigr)\fi
}
\makeatother

\begin{document}

$\hyper{\phi}[2]{1}{az,a/z}{ab}{q,\frac{bt}{a}}$
$\hyper{\phi}[2]{1}{az,a/z}{ab}{q,\frac{bt}{a}}$

\end{document}


\documentclass[11pt]{article}
\usepackage{amsmath}

\begin{document}
2$\phi_{1}$$\left( \begin{array}{ll|ll} az, & a/z & & bt\\ & & q, & -\\ & ab & & a \\ \end{array} \right)$
\end{document}
