How do I create a left brace for an array such that it surrounds all the elements of the array? This is happening whenever one of the elements is \cos with \frac as its mandatory argument.

Minimal Working Example:



\mathbf{A} = \frac{1}{\sqrt{\frac{n}{2}}} \left[
1 \\
\cos\frac{2\pi}{n} \\
\vdots \\

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.

  • From what I can gather, the various solutions are: placing \struts in the argument of the fractions, applying \arraystretch, and inserting lines with narrow height to increase the spacing manually. The cause of the issue is characters being drawn outside of the bounding box. – jrand Sep 10 '12 at 5:15
