# History of 2021-09-27 Ellipses in math - ldots versus cdots

 2021-09-27 20:18 UTC Revision 1 . . . . mbork – It’s been a while since a TeX-related post here, but I still use TeX and friends once in a while, and this time I’d like to share something apparently not everyone knows about. LaTeX has a \dots macro, setting the ellipsis (three consecutive dots) which is just an alias for \ldots.
