This question was marked as an exact duplicate of an existing question.

For your particular question see: How to typeset the symbol "^" (caret/circumflex). On how to look up symbols generally, see How to look up a symbol. – Alan Munn Dec 11 '12 at 4:50
Welcome to TeX.SE. – Peter Grill Dec 11 '12 at 5:14

There are only two options that come immediately to mind: \verb=^= and \^. The first will not work inside another command and the second is actually an accent so should be typeset as \^{} (if you only want the caret).

It might be useful to know how you intend to use the symbol. For example, if you want to use is as a binary operation in mathematics you could cobble together something like


in your preamble.

Try this: \^{}.

More symbols see in the pdf file symbols-a4.pdf.
