giga-

$\mathrm G$

The Système Internationale d'Unités symbol for the metric scaling prefix giga, denoting $10^{\, 9 }$, is $\mathrm { G }$.


Its $\LaTeX$ code is \mathrm {G} .


Group

$G$

Used to denote a general group.

In this context, frequently seen in the compound symbol $\struct {G, \circ}$ where $\circ$ represents an arbitrary binary operation.

The $\LaTeX$ code for \(\struct {G, \circ}\) is \struct {G, \circ} .


Acceleration Due to Gravity at Earth's Surface

$g$

The force exerted on a body at (or near) the surface of the Earth under the influence of the gravitational field given rise to by the Earth.


Function

$\map g x$

The letter $g$, along with $f$ and $h$, is frequently used to denote a general mapping or function.

The $\LaTeX$ code for \(\map {g} {x}\) is \map {g} {x} .


Geometric Distribution

$X \sim \Geometric p$

$X$ has the geometric distribution with parameter $p$.


The $\LaTeX$ code for \(X \sim \Geometric {p}\) is X \sim \Geometric {p} .


Shifted Geometric Distribution

$X \sim \ShiftedGeometric p$

$X$ has the shifted geometric distribution with parameter $p$.


The $\LaTeX$ code for \(X \sim \ShiftedGeometric {p}\) is X \sim \ShiftedGeometric {p} .


Generating Function

$\map {G_A} z$


Let $A = \left \langle {a_n}\right \rangle$ be a sequence in $\R$.


Then $\displaystyle G_A \left({z}\right) = \sum_{n \mathop \ge 0} a_n z^n$ is called the generating function for the sequence $A$.


The $\LaTeX$ code for \(\map {G_A} z\) is \map {G_A} z .


gcd

$\gcd$


Used to denote the greatest common divisor of a pair of numbers.

For example:

$\gcd \set {6, 10} = 2$


The $\LaTeX$ code for \(\gcd\) is \gcd .


glb

$\map {\operatorname {glb} } T$ or $\map {\operatorname {g.l.b.} } T$

Used to denote the greatest lower bound of a subset $T$ of an ordered structure $\struct {S, \preceq}$.

The same as $\map \inf T$, that is, infimum.


The $\LaTeX$ code for \(\map {\operatorname {glb} } T\) is \map {\operatorname {glb} } T .

The $\LaTeX$ code for \(\map {\operatorname {g.l.b.} } T\) is \map {\operatorname {g.l.b.} } T .
