SuperscriptBox

FilledSmallSquare SuperscriptBox[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.

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

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

FilledSmallSquare See Section 2.9.10.
