Special Symbols

We have already seen many examples of the symbols available in tex--\alpha, \psi, and so on. There are some other symbols which the amstex and amssymb packages make available. These includes fonts for blackboard bold capital letters ( tex2html_wrap_inline2571 , tex2html_wrap_inline2573 , tex2html_wrap_inline2575 ), caligraphic ( tex2html_wrap_inline2577 , tex2html_wrap_inline2579 , tex2html_wrap_inline2581 ) and Fraktur ( tex2html_wrap_inline2583 , tex2html_wrap_inline2585 , tex2html_wrap_inline2587 ) letters. The commands are \mathbb, \mathcal and \mathfrak. They are valid only in math mode, and they operate only on the letter or group that immediately follows. that follows them. For example, tex2html_wrap_inline2589 is given by $\mathfrak S = \mathbb R^2/G$.

To make the following table of symbols completely available, include the following package-loading command after your documentclass command.

\usepackage{amstex, amssymb}
