Synopsis:

\*


A multiplication symbol that allows a line break. If there is a break then LaTeX puts a \times symbol, ×, before that break.

In $$A_1\* A_2\* A_3\* A_4$$, if there is no line break then LaTeX outputs it as though it were $$A_1 A_2 A_3 A_4$$. If a line break does happen, for example between the two middle ones, then LaTeX sets it like $$A_1 A_2 \times$$, followed by the break, followed by $$A_3 A_4$$.
