# How to typeset an independent and identical normal distribution (iidN) in LaTex?

Is there an elegant way of writing "iidN()" in LaTex, other than just writing it "iidN()"?

That is, is there a macro for "iid" and/or for normal distribution "N" symbols?

Scrap that. I meant i.i.d. $X \sim \mathcal{N}(\mu,\sigma^2)$. – Jubobs May 9 '13 at 18:54

\iid~$X \sim \pN(\mu, \sigma^2)$
