Using xypic, my best attempts looks like

Notice how the longer formula on the second line stretches out the top line.

What Package(s) could I use to create the top image?

Thanks.

Have you tried using tikz-cd which helps in drawing commutative diagrams? Of course, I have never used it as I do not need commutative diagrams :-)

mas' suggestion is very good. I also used pure TikZ for it. Examples:


tikz-cd gives a convenient way and hides the complex TikZ syntax. But TikZ is great, you may see it if you click the examples and look at the rest of that TikZ gallery.
