The "limits" associated with these symbols are entered as
subscripts for entries appearing below the
symbol and as superscripts for entries appearing
above the symbol.
For example the sum from n=0 to infinity of x_{n} would be entered as

\sum_{n=0}^{\infty} x_{n}The actual placement of the limits depends on whether this is in

The `\sqrt` command produces a radical
symbol appropriately sized for the radicand argument.
