SuperscriptBox

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

FilledSmallSquare Inside \( ... \) SuperscriptBox[x, y] can be input as x \^ y.

FilledSmallSquare In a notebook a SuperscriptBox can be created using ControlKeyLeftModified6RightModified or ControlKeyLeftModified^RightModified. ControlKeyLeftModifiedRightModified moves out of the superscript.

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

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

FilledSmallSquareSuperscriptBox[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 overscript position when the whole SuperscriptBox is displayed large, and in a superscript position when it is displayed smaller.

FilledSmallSquare In StandardForm, explicit SuperscriptBox 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.
