Can you link to a picture of the symbol you're looking for? It's not clear from the question what it is you want... – Seamus Dec 12 '10 at 16:43
When I went to look it up I realised that it is \mathcal{N}. Sorry. – asdf123 Dec 12 '10 at 16:46
@asdf123: It would be nice if you just note the solution you found below as an answer and mark it as "accepted". This way everybody can see that the question is answered resp. closed and not open any more. – Stefan Kottwitz Dec 12 '10 at 16:58
For such things it's always worth to take a look at »Wikipedia«. – Thorsten Donig Dec 12 '10 at 17:30
@asdfl123 @Thorsten ... and if you look under the edit tag in the Wikipedia you will see the actual LaTeX command! – Yiannis Lazarides Dec 12 '10 at 20:06
