H =
P_{\mbox{ring}}   \times \left( -\log_2 ( P_{\mbox{ring}})   \middle)
P_{\mbox{rinc}}   \times \middle( -\log_2 ( P_{\mbox{rinc}})   \right)

Yup, that worked!!

An explicit example is always useful to have, it's one of the serious
problems with LaTeX that such working examples aren't always there so
one is left guessing.
