The output is as expected:

enter image description here

However, I have the following error with regard to the usage of \abs:

Missing { inserted. $\abs{\cdot}
Missing { inserted. $\abs{\cdot}
Missing } inserted. $\abs{\cdot}
Missing } inserted. $\abs{\cdot}$

Why? How to prevent this?

  • Does this answer your question? \DeclarePairedDelimiter with \left and \right

  • @user202729 Yes it does answer my question partly. Is there a way I can achieve resizing without going through the rigmarole that egreg uses in their answer, that uses \left|?
