I am using the following definition for a symbol I call \nstn:


How can I set the size of this single symbol (which is basically \varepsilon) to a specific number (I would like it to be larger than usual/default)?

You could just declare one symbol, and then define another using a scalebox or something...


A \nstn B

You might change \mathrel to \mathord or \mathop or something depending on the mathematical syntax category. For some reason this said "relation sign" to me.

You can by-pass NFSS and use TeX primitives:

\[ A \nstn B \]
