I wan to get basically this expression

enter image description here

The problem, if I don't do much, is the big space on the subscript enter image description here

The best I have been to do is (from where I erase the top part to make the first picture)

enter image description here

I have two problems with this expression; first the vertical line is too big (if I don't use \bigg| it overlaps with the text) and second in the equation environment it gives

which is not what I want.

The code for the three las pictures is

\documentclass{article}

\usepackage{tensor}
\usepackage{mathtools}

\begin{document}
\begin{equation}
(p+q)_\mu\left.\tensor*{\tilde\Gamma}{^\mu_a^\nu_b^\rho_c}\right|_{\text{regulated}} (-p-q,p,q)
\end{equation}

$
(p+q)_\mu\tensor*{\tilde\Gamma}{^\mu_a^\nu_b^\rho_c}\mathop{\bigg|(-p}_{\mathclap{\text{regulated}}} -q,p,q)
$

\begin{equation}
(p+q)_\mu\tensor*{\tilde\Gamma}{^\mu_a^\nu_b^\rho_c}\mathop{\bigg|(-p}_{\mathclap{\text{regulated}}} -q,p,q)
\end{equation}


\end{document}
  • Have you tried \parbox{0pt}{regulated}? – Stefan Schroeder Jun 14 '18 at 13:40
  • it does work, but when I tried it in the whole text, it didn't because \parbox and the breqn package seems not to be compatible. (I use breqn in other parts) – David Jaramillo Jun 14 '18 at 14:04
  • Please edit your code so that it incorporates use of the breqn package. – Mico Jun 14 '18 at 14:14

The command \mathclap is a centered overlap which forces you to add (-p. Instead you can use \mathrlap, where the text only overlaps on the right side. Using this in the subscript of \biggr| leads to

\begin{equation}
  (p+q)_\mu\tensor*{\tilde\Gamma} {^\mu_a^\nu_b^\rho_c}\biggr|_{\mathrlap{\text{regulated}}} (-p-q,p,q)
\end{equation}

This works in display and inline math, but the line is still too big. The problem is that delimiters are always centered around the math axis in TeX. If you use LuaTeX, you can use the noaxis flag to fix this:

\documentclass{article}

\usepackage{tensor}
\usepackage{mathtools}

\begin{document}
\begin{equation}
  (p+q)_\mu\left.\tensor*{\tilde\Gamma}{^\mu_a^\nu_b^\rho_c}\Uright noaxis|_{\mathrlap{\text{regulated}}} (-p-q,p,q)
\end{equation}
\end{document}
