I defined a new command \doublefaktor to print a double coset of type A\B/C (similar to \faktor which print a quotient A/B) as follows:

\newcommand{\doublefaktor}[3]{ {\textstyle #1}\mkern-8mu\diagdown\mkern-5mu^{\textstyle #2}\mkern-5mu\diagup\mkern-8mu{\textstyle #3} }

(thanks to previous suggestions here) but I would like to have bigger \diagdown and \diagup in the pdf-printing. How can I do?

    \big doesn't take an argument (as in \big{arg.}): it is prefixed to a math delimiter, like in \big( or \big| or \big\{. Mar 16 '20 at 11:46

    Additionally please make your sniplet into a complete example, there are several macros here we do not know the definition of, and thus we cannot test your code without guessing

    And that is going to help us how? Provide the code, else others cannot test or help with your problem.

    What exactly is it you are trying to do? Do you even know what \big does? Why are you attempting to apply \big to a letter? Perhaps you should start completely over. Explain what the end goal is and then perhaps someone can help you.

    Your edit sill not provide MWE (Minimal Working Example, a small but complete document, which reproduce your problem), which would enable simple testing of your problem.

A pure guessing:

    {\textstyle #1}
    \mkern-4mu\scalebox{1.5}{$\diagdown$}\mkern-5mu^{\textstyle #2}%
    \mkern-4mu\scalebox{1.5}{$\diagup$}\mkern-5mu{\textstyle #3} }


Note, above document example is called MWE (Minimal Working Example). It gives after compilation the following result:

  • Thank you so much. For future question how can I display a MWE?

  • @V.Galgano, copy content from your LaTeX editor to question window, than put ``` before and after it. That is.
