LaTeX wizards: help me with labels on sums


I'm fairly new to LaTeX though I have used it indirectly, through LyX, for some time. I would like to reproduce the typesetting seen in this picture:

However, I can only figure out how to put a label/index to the right of the sum, not directly beneath it as in the picture. Is there any way to do this in LaTeX?

Simple enough, the following should give the right form,

\begin{equation}
\sum_{bonds}
\end{equation}

$\underset{bonds}{\sum}$ should work as well.

Thanks epck, it turns out that what I actually wanted was displaystyle. I have a paper reference sitting nearby now so hopefully I won't encounter any other elementary puzzles.
