## 9.4.8 Ellipses

Ellipsis (omission mark) commands are shown in Table 9.12. The amsmath package also provides: `\dotsc` for dots with commas, `\dotsb` for dots with binary operators/relations, `\dotsm` for multiplication dots, `\dotsi` for dots with integrals and `\dotso` for other dots, which can be used as replacements for `\ldots` and `\cdots`.

 `\vdots` `\cdots` `\dotsb`† `\dotsi`† `\dotsm`† `\ddots` `\ldots` `\dotsc`† `\dotso`†

Example (Low Ellipsis):

This example uses the command `\forall` to produce the “for all” symbol , and it also uses \␣ (backslash space) to make a space before the for all symbol. The amsmath “dots with commas” ellipsis `\dotsc` is used rather than the standard `\ldots`:

Example (Centred ellipsis):

This example uses the amsmath “dots with binary operators/relations” `\dotsb` instead of the standard `\cdots`:

\[
y = a_1 + a_2 + `\dotsb` + a_n
\]
