Superscripts in math mode

Postby Ultragabu » Sun Nov 06, 2016 8:16 pm

Hi. Please, look at this code

R = \left( \, \frac{a}{b} \, \right)^{N}

When I use the \left \right feature and then superscript the last bracket the superscript (N in this case) is placed far from the bracket, like it is drifting away. Is there a way to bring it closer?

Thank you.

You could write:

... \right)^{\!N}

with the \! for a thin negative space. Or use \!\! for two negative spaces.
