Would like to find a way to cross out a term in a mathematical expression with a diagonal arrow pointing from lower left to upper right and with a little "zero" next to the pointy end of the arrow. :)

You can use the cancel package (adding \usepackage{cancel} in the preamble of the document) that introduces the commands:

  • \cancel : draws a diagonal line (slash) through its argument.

  • \bcancel: uses the negative slope (a backslash).

  • \xcancel: draws an X (actually \cancel plus \bcancel).

  • \cancelto{〈value〉}{〈expression〉} draws a diagonal arrow through the 〈expression〉, pointing to the 〈value〉.

For example, to get an arrow ending in a zero over parameter $\phi$ , you would use $\cancelto{0}{\phi}$.
