When compiling the following MWE with lualatex,

\documentclass{scrartcl}
\usepackage{amsmath}

\begin{document}
\[\binom{5}{3}\]
\end{document}

the numbers inside the binomial coefficient are not centered:

unsymmetric binomial coefficient

The same happens with \tbinom. When compiling with pdflatex, I don’t have this problem. Any ideas what could cause this?

    With LuaTeX 1.10.0, there is no problem. Probably updating solves your problem. – ferahfeza Apr 26 at 8:47

    That's a quite old luatex. If you really want to use luatex you should better ensure that you have a current tex system - quite a number of bugs have been corrected in the last years. – Ulrike Fischer Apr 26 at 8:47
  • Thank you for the comments! I updated to LuaTex 1.07.0 and it works now. – FKranhold May 2 at 21:45
