How to look up a math symbol?

How can I put a dash across the letter d? Not through the middle but only through the top vertical line bit. It's like the \hbar used in physics but with a d.

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

Please always see “How to look up a math symbol?” for ideas how you can easily find a particular symbol. Usually questions like this get closed as duplicate, but I don't think it makes sense doing it now. – Martin Scharrer Sep 15 '11 at 6:32

What you are looking for is:


d with dash

For this you need to load the fontenc package


When looking for a symbol, remember using Detextify, which is a beautiful tool, created just for this purpose, or check the The Comprehensive LaTeX Symbol List.
