This question already has an answer here:

I am getting an error when I type:

$\~{c}_{it+1}} = c_{it+1}$ 

The error says:

You can't use `\spacefactor' in math mode. ... composite future consumption good $\~{c}

How I can modify the code so I use the accent above c_{it+1}.

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.


You want $\tilde{c}_{it+1}} = c_{it+1}$.

Some accents have mathematical meaning, hence the warnings or errors.
