Hello : this is probably more of a latex issue than Lyx, but I would
do this quickly in Lyx, so...
What I want is a neatly formatted set of relations like
a < S < b
c < T < d
and so forth. I just need the analog of the usual "3 column"
environment so that the various inequality symbols match up
the above example I want 5 columns instead of the usual 3. I tried
the AMS align environment, but had trouble adding the columns (the
came out with way too much spacing).
How do I do this in Lyx?
You could use an array in a regular equation environment. Then you
have more control over alignment of each column in the array.
