# How to get these symbols in LaTeX? [duplicate]

In my book I found a few of weird symbols:

They are used as mark of ellipse, parabola and hyperbola, respectively (E-like, P-like and H-like letters in these images). How to get them in LaTeX (and by the way, what's their name)?

Are you looking for \mathcal{E}, \mathcal{P} and \mathcal{H}? –  moewe Mar 30 at 16:05

The math alphabet \mathcal is used for these symbols:

\documentclass{article}

\begin{document}

$\mathcal{E} \mathcal{P} \mathcal{H}$

\end{document}
