Is there a standard way to typeset the modulus operator (as in arithmetic remainder)? The percent sign (`%`

) is often used by programming languages and mathematicians tend to use `mod`

, but because of the romanization of `mod`

, this notation can be confusing when used inline with text as in

```
So long as T mod n = 0 (i.e., the quantity is an integral multiple of n)...
```

I am currently using `$T\mod{}n=0$`

, which places more space between the first argument and `mod`

than between `mod`

and the second argument.

## Best Answer

`\bmod`

is designed for mod used as a binary op.
