# [R] Latex problem in Rd file

I am trying to build

\deqn{(  \begin{array}{c}
k-1 \\
j
\end{array}  )
}

To represent the combinatorial notation as in

k-1
j

but R is rendering PDF literally as follows

( k-1\j )

which is not correct. This is happening on Linux and MacOSX
installations.

I have tried variations of the \deqn{} to no avail.
Any suggestions or point me to an existing package with an Rd file that
has and latex array in it.

Thanks
