For publication and/or presentation purposes, is there a symbol to denote the calculation of a correlation between two vectors?
Obviously, for the value of the correlation is symbolically represented using $\rho$ for Pearson's or Spearman's, and $\tau$ for Kendall's, but what is the appropriate way (if any) to present the calculation without the entire formula?
For instance, if I want to report that I calculated the Pearson's correlation between two vectors, $x$ and $y$, I would image writing it as:
$\rho$ = $x$ (some symbol) $y$
The same way to represent the product of $x$ and $y$ would be written $x$ x $y$, or the sum by $x$ + $y$ or $\Sigma xy$.
Would $\rho$ = $cor(x,y)$ be correct?
