1. I would like to know if there is option to make such scrpits like in this picture below.
  2. Is option to put letter instead of a *?

enter image description here


You can do the first one:

Row[{Superscript[" ", "*"], M}]

and the second by

Superscript[M, "*"]

and if you want the equals sign at the end:

Row[{Superscript[M, "*"], "="}]

You can replace the * with anything you wish.

  • $\begingroup$ \[InvisibleSpace] is probably better for the first one. $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ No, you can't assign *M to a function. All variable and function names start with letters, and by convention, should be small (not capital). You asked for "scripts" which I interpreted as text (because it makes sense), not variables (which do not). $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ @Papa you would need to use Symbolize from the Notations package if you want to make M* a symbol. $\endgroup$ Apr 1 '20 at 0:53
