# Braces inside LaTeX statements

edited May 2018

You want something simple like defining a set.

$$\tag{correct} \textbf{A} = \{a, b, c, \cdots d\}$$ ...but the '{' are getting dropped...

$$\tag{dropped} \textbf{A} = {a, b, c, \cdots d}$$

Even better would be to use \lbrace and rbrace, since they always work properly,
$$\tag{more correct} \textbf{A} = \lbrace a, b, c, \cdots d \rbrace ,$$
