How can I write curly capital Greek letters, looking like math cal? In particular I need curly \Pi. I want to have both version regular \Pi and curly \Pi in one text.

Welcome to TeX.SX! You can have a look at our starter guide to familiarize yourself further with our format. Could you please include a image to get an idea for all ?. As new user without image posting privileges simply include the image as normal and remove the ! in front of it to turn it into a link. A moderator or another user with edit privileges can then reinsert the ! to turn it into an image again. – texenthusiast Nov 15 '13 at 22:02
Can you point to a resource showing the shape you have in mind? – egreg Nov 15 '13 at 22:18
\pi creates a smaller but curly/fancy pi greek letter. Is this what you had in mind? – Melanie Nov 16 '13 at 1:06
Some of the greek letters have "variants", such as the, I believe to be a caligraphic variant, \varpi. I'm unaware of any such for the capital ones though. – Tilo Wiklund Nov 22 '13 at 14:09
