I have the following line of code :

$$
\operatorname{aff}(\mathcal{C})
\coloneqq
\{
\lambda_{1}x_{1}+\lambda_{2}x_{2}+\cdots+\lambda_{k}x_{k}
\mid 
x_{1},x_{2},\ldots,x_{k}\in\mathcal{C},\sum_{i}\lambda_{i}=1
\}
$$

which should generate the following expression :

I wish to know if there is a way to replace the summation notation above and replace it with the smaller summation notation used in text mode i.e. the one below :

$\sum_{i}\lambda_{i}$ 

enter image description here

I attempted to use \text{$\sum_{i}$} in math mode but it did not work because it gave me the large summation notation.

Use \textstyle.

And use \[\] instead of $$ $$ for display style math.

Improved Answer (modification according to Zarko's and egreg's comments):

\documentclass{article}

\usepackage{mathtools}

\begin{document}
\[
\operatorname{aff}(\mathcal{C})
\coloneqq
\{
\lambda_{1}x_{1}+\lambda_{2}x_{2}+\cdots+\lambda_{k}x_{k}
\mid
x_{1},x_{2},\ldots,x_{k}\in\mathcal{C},{\textstyle\sum_{i}\lambda_{i}}=1
\}
\]

\end{document}

  • Removed the amsmath package as it is loaded by the mathtools package (mentioned by zarko).
  • Grouped the part that is to be displayed by \textstyle in the text style mode as \textstyle is not a macro (mentioned by egreg).

Original Problametic answer:

\documentclass{article}

\usepackage{amsmath}
\usepackage{mathtools}


\begin{document}
\[
\operatorname{aff}(\mathcal{C})
\coloneqq
\{
\lambda_{1}x_{1}+\lambda_{2}x_{2}+\cdots+\lambda_{k}x_{k}
\mid
x_{1},x_{2},\ldots,x_{k}\in\mathcal{C},\textstyle{\sum_{i}\lambda_{i}}=1
\}
\]
\end{document}

    mathtools call amsmath, so you not need to load it again. Also definition for new operator name is better to have in preamble.

    Note that \textstyle doesn't take an argument: it's a declaration whose effect ends with the formula.

  • Thank you @Zarko for your suggestion. I have tried to edit accordingly.

For a one-off case you can use Zarko's method.

If you need it several times, you can define a command that forces text style when the symbol is to be used in display style. However, I'd also use \big size for the braces.

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

\DeclareMathOperator{\aff}{aff}

\makeatletter
\newcommand{\tsum}{\DOTSB\mathop{\tsum@}\nolimits}
\newcommand{\tsum@}{\mathchoice{\textstyle\sum}{\sum}{\sum}{\sum}}
\makeatother

\begin{document}

\[
\aff{\mathcal{C}}\coloneqq
\bigr\{
  \lambda_{1}x_{1}+\lambda_{2}x_{2}+\cdots+\lambda_{k}x_{k}
  \mid
  x_{1},x_{2},\ldots,x_{k}\in\mathcal{C},\tsum_{i}\lambda_{i}=1
\bigr\}
\]

\end{document}

A wee bit modified @Imran answer:

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{mathtools}
\DeclareMathOperator{\aff}{aff} % <---

\begin{document}
\[
\aff(\mathcal{C})\coloneqq
\bigl\{  % <---
\lambda_{1}x_{1}+\lambda_{2}x_{2}+\cdots+\lambda_{k}x_{k}
\mid
x_{1},x_{2},\ldots,x_{k}\in\mathcal{C},{\textstyle\sum_{i}}\lambda_{i}=1 % <---
\bigr\}   % <---
\]
\end{document}
