# Problem with superscript

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 *?

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.

• \[InvisibleSpace] is probably better for the first one. Mar 31 '20 at 0:05
• Thanks you but is option to assign *M to function?

• 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). Mar 31 '20 at 17:51
• @Papa you would need to use Symbolize from the Notations package if you want to make M* a symbol. Apr 1 '20 at 0:53
