Use mathbb command in latex

To do this, you need to have \mathbb{R} command that is present in multiple packages. For example amsmath, amssymb, texfonts, and pxfonts.

  \[ \mathbb{R}\in \left[a_1,a_n\right] \]
  \[ \mathbb{R}\in \left[S_1,S_n\right] \]
  \[ \mathbb{R}_1, \mathbb{R}^n,\mathbb{R}_{-*},\mathbb{R}_{+*} \]

Output :

Real number expression

Add superscript and subscript with real number

Positive real number and Negative real number symbols are denoted by ℝ+ and ℝ. Which, you can easily represent using the superscript with the \mathbb command.

   \[ \mathbb{R}_{\geq 0} \in \mathbb{R}^+ \cup \{0\} \]
   \[ 0 < \mathbb{R}^+ < \infty \]
   \[ -\infty < \mathbb{R}^- <0 \]
   \[ \mathbb{R}_0 = \{0\} \]

Output :

Set of real number
