SuperscriptBox (\^)SubsuperscriptBox

SubscriptBox

FilledSmallSquareSubscriptBox[x, y] represents in input and output.

FilledSmallSquare Inside \( ... \) SubscriptBox[x, y] can be input as x \_ y.

FilledSmallSquare In a notebook a SubscriptBox can be created using ControlKeyLeftModified-RightModified or ControlKeyLeftModified_RightModified. ControlKeyLeftModifiedRightModified moves out of the subscript.

FilledSmallSquare In StandardForm and InputForm, SubscriptBox[x, y] is interpreted on input as Subscript[x, y].

FilledSmallSquare The baseline of SubscriptBox[x, y] is taken to be the baseline of x.

FilledSmallSquareSubscriptBox[x, y] is usually output with y in a smaller font than x.

FilledSmallSquare With the option setting LimitsPositioning->True y is placed in an underscript position when the whole SubscriptBox is displayed large, and in a subscript position when it is displayed smaller.

FilledSmallSquare In StandardForm, explicit SubscriptBox objects are output literally. You can use DisplayForm to see the display form of such objects.

FilledSmallSquare See The Mathematica Book: Section 2.8.10.
