## $\Omega$ Notation: Also known as

Note that in the Greek alphabet, $\omega$ is the **minuscule** counterpart of the **capital letter** $\Omega$.

Hence the former is called **little-omega** and the latter **big-omega**.

Some sources, therefore, write **$\omega$ notation** as **little-$\omega$ notation**, despite the fact that $\omega$'s "little"-ness is intrinsic.

$\mathsf{Pr} \infty \mathsf{fWiki}$ may sometimes adopt this convention if clarity is improved.
