This question already has an answer here:

I'm trying to use \mathscr in my documents, but it just doesn't show up. I'm using MacTeX, with pdfTeX and XeTeX version 3.1415926 and TeXShop version 3.26. As an MWE, I can use:

%!TEX TS-program = xelatex  
%!TEX encoding = UTF-8 Unicode  
\documentclass[a4paper]{report}  
\usepackage{mathrsfs}  
\begin{document}  
$\mathscr{abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyz}$  
\end{document}  

the first two lines being TeXShop's way to be told to use XeLaTeX (though using pdfTeX changes nothing) and to save the document in UTF-8 Unicode encoding. How do I get the \mathscr to appear?

You have to define a math font, e.g. XITS Math

%!TEX TS-program = xelatex
%!TEX encoding = UTF-8 Unicode
\documentclass[a4paper]{report}
\usepackage{unicode-math}
\setmathfont{XITS Math}
\setmathfont[version=setB,StylisticSet=1]{XITS Math}
\begin{document}
$\mathscr{abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyz}$

$\mathscr{ABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRST}$

\mathversion{setB}%
$\mathscr{abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyz}$

$\mathscr{ABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRST}$
\end{document}

Talking about pdfLaTeX, the command \mathscr from the package mathrsfs only support capital letters...

MWE

%!TEX TS-program = pdflatex
%!TEX encoding = UTF-8 Unicode  
\documentclass[a4paper]{report}
\usepackage{mathrsfs}
\begin{document}
$\mathscr{ABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUVWXYZ}$
\end{document}
