You can get automatically the § symbol (which I don't recommend, though) with cleveref and its \cref command. It's better to have a different command than \ref, because you might need the latter for referring the section without the § prefix. The § symbol is obtained with \S. \documentclass{article} %\usepackage{hyperref} % not needed; should go before ...

Thanks for the webpage, I already found the symbol.

It may be best to define a new command, say \secref that you use for references to sectional units, while using \ref for everything else: \newcommand{\secref}[1]{\S\ref{#1}} hyperref provides this functionality via its \autoref feature. You merely have to define the \<counter>autorefname macros accordingly: \documentclass{article} ...

I used the detexify website to search the sign you are asking. %pdflatex \documentclass[margin=0.5mm]{standalone} \usepackage{textcomp} \begin{document} \textsection \end{document} The usage is simple, just assign a reference tag to the chapter you want, and then add that reference tag besides to this sign in your text. Please read the following page: ...

I think that there are two most sensitive options: increase the first space and make it symmetric: $\langle\,,\rangle$ put \cdots in place of teh arguments: $\langle\cdot,\cdot\rangle$ (this is what I prefer). Typeset versions: In the second one, if you don't like the space after the comma: $\langle\cdot{,}\cdot\rangle$

If you just need \Bowtie from wasysym, you can just define it by looking what's done in the package: \def\Bowtie{\mbox{\wasyfamily\char49}} so you just need to know what \wasyfamily does: \def\wasyfamily{\fontencoding{U}\fontfamily{wasy}\selectfont} So you can avoid loading wasysym by doing, in your document: % a command to access the wasysym font ...

I will assume you're loading the amsthm package since you make use of an environment called proof. With this package loaded, the following code will give you the QED symbol (say, a hollow square) at the end of the display-math environment; note that the macro \qedhere has to be the last item of the display-math environment. \documentclass{article} ...

The best solution for the automatic placement of end marks in theorems is the ntheorem package, in my opinion. Here is an example: \documentclass{article} \usepackage[utf8]{inputenc} \usepackage[T1]{fontenc} \usepackage{fourier} \usepackage{heuristica} \usepackage{amsmath} \usepackage[thmmarks, amsmath, thref]{ntheorem} \usepackage{cleveref} ...

I don't recognise the image as a sigma. Unicode has three variant lowercase sigmas U+03c2 GREEK SMALL LETTER FINAL SIGMA U+03c3 GREEK SMALL LETTER SIGMA U+03f2 GREEK LUNATE SIGMA SYMBOL which look like ςσϲ or as an image If you are convinced you want the letter shape you drew just save it as a png or (better if you can) a scalable format such ...

As I indicated in my comment which the OP acknowledged as an accurate rendition, the symbol can be found online, for example, at http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/thumb/2/23/Doubleflat.svg/681px-Doubleflat.svg.png. To recreate this, a simple negative kern between two \flat symbols (in math mode) was sufficient to achieve the effect. ...

I didn't see any strange symbol either. Perhaps it is a problem with the encoding of your source file. I suggest a slightly different alignment; with and without (smaller) parentheses around the fractions and a correct definition for absolute value, borrowed from an example in mathtools (it's needless to load amsmath if you load mathtools). ...

I don't know whether this fact is documented (I can't see it in the manual, though), but the arabicfnt.sty that's automatically loaded has \DeclareRobustCommand{\times}{\fontfamily{artimes}\selectfont} which explains the mystery. You can solve the problem by adding to your document \DeclareMathSymbol{\mtimes}{\mathbin}{symbols}{"02} and using \mtimes ...

Well, from your MWE I removed those strange bullets at the end of the code, since you're loading the amsmath package, we can improve the code with it. \documentclass[12pt,a4paper]{article} \usepackage[utf8]{inputenc} \usepackage[spanish]{babel} \usepackage{amsmath} \usepackage{amsfonts} \usepackage{amssymb} \usepackage{pgf,tikz} \usetikzlibrary{arrows} ...

Seems to be missing a tikz solution: or with smaller text under the brace: Code: \documentclass{article} \usepackage{mathtools} \usepackage{xparse} \usepackage{tikz} \usetikzlibrary{calc} \usetikzlibrary{decorations.pathreplacing} \newcommand{\tikzmark}[1]{\tikz[overlay,remember picture] \node (#1) {};} % Tweak these as necessary ...

The package MnSymbol defines \nleftrightline which looks similar: \documentclass{standalone} \usepackage{MnSymbol} \begin{document} $W \nleftrightline X$ \end{document}

Never seen such a symbol, but you can define it; choose a better name. \documentclass{article} \usepackage{centernot} \newcommand{\wrel}{% for weird relation'' \centernot{\mathrel{-}\joinrel\mathrel{-}}% } \begin{document} $W\wrel X$ \end{document} Notes. I use the fact that TeX doesn't add space between consecutive relation symbols; \joinrel ...

This symbol is called U+21A7 in the Unicode. There are many fonts which support that. You can search for possible symbols on your system by clicking here. With help of this font list, I tried some symbols which were available on my machine (this requires Xe- or LuaLaTeX): % arara: lualatex \documentclass{article} \usepackage{fontspec} ...

A simple one-line solution which worked for me was: X \underset{k_2}{\stackrel{k_1}{\rightleftharpoons}} Y But the harpoon arrows don't extend when the text above and below is longer.

If you look at pgfgantt documentation will see that a milestone is not just a symbol but a pgfshape. Therefore you need to replace it with another shape. But luckily, Alain Matthes wrote a shapes.emoticon library in his answer to Something between \frownie and \smiley. Once you have the file tikzlibraryshapes.emoticon.code.tex in your working folder, you'll ...

Using the code from the entry The Principal Value Integral symbol (which defines the macro \dashint) in the UK List of TeX FAQs as a starting point, it is reasonably straightforward to define two new macros, \lowdashint and \highdashint, that place a "dash" symbol -- actually, a "minus" symbol -- a bit lower and a bit higher, respectively, than \dashint ...

One way of placing bars through math characters is to use \ooalign. In the two commands I've defined below, the first number controls how high the bar is on the integral sign, the second controls the length of the bar, and the third controls the thickness of the bar. \documentclass{article} \newcommand{\stI}{% \ooalign{\hidewidth ...

Regarding the inputenc question Your example works without problem if I copy it in an utf8-document and declare the inputenc encoding accordingly as utf8. Ditto with ansinew. I can't really imagine how you could get the output in your image -- it can be created but imho not with the standard files. None of them would replace non-ascii chars with question ...

this is the kind of job I use to do sometimes. Well, there are few tools you can use for solve this. Maybe the best and automatic way is with pandoc, but sincerely the truth is that I have not tested enough and have not had a satisfactory experience with it yet. Another choice is to do what @Bernard suggests. Formerly I used AbiWord for open doc files and ...

Pandoc is a command-line tool that can covert docx files to LaTeX files. As for dealing with ellipses and quote marks, I think that the best way to handle those is using the search and replace function in your LaTeX editor.

You might use the Fetamont fonts: \documentclass{article} \usepackage{textcomp} \usepackage{fetamont} \DeclareRobustCommand{\simtm}[1]{% \textsuperscript{\normalfont\ffmfamily\fontseries{lc}\selectfont#1}% } \begin{document} A\texttrademark\quad A\simtm{TM}\quad A\simtm{ABC} \end{document} that gives (the first for comparison)

Just switch fonts in a group: \newcommand\myTM{{\normalfont\texttrademark}} If you are switching actual types (font families, e.g. Times vs. Computer Modern) within your document, you will need to specify the font fully.

I like Mathematica's way to denote products with spaces (horresco referens!). To do this in TeX, I have redefined * (see below) so that it inserts a thin space in math mode. This is not automatic, but it seems to work well with ordinary atoms, parentheses and operators. If needed, it can easily be switched off. For other uses of * in math mode, \ast may be ...

Here, I just saved your ear image into a file (ear.pdf and/or ear.eps), and used a scaled \includegraphics to insert it. You can vary the size, which I set to a height of 2ex. \documentclass{article} \usepackage{graphicx,dingbat} \def\ear{\includegraphics[height=2ex]{ear}} \begin{document} Ear and eye symbols: \ear{} and \eye \end{document}

If you are able to use Xe- or LuaLaTeX, you may use the unicode U+1F442 by copy pasting it in your source code or like in my following MWE: % arara: lualatex \documentclass{article} \usepackage{fontspec} \begin{document} \setmainfont{quivira.otf} \symbol{"1F442} \setmainfont{symbola.ttf} \symbol{"1F442} \end{document} When you have ...

For PDFLaTeX: As recommended by Sigur.

Here's a version that works across math styles. EDITED to keep the same vertical height as the original elements \documentclass{article} \usepackage{scalerel} \def\widen{\mathrel{\ThisStyle{\stretchrel*{\ooalign{% \raise0.2\LMex\hbox{$\SavedStyle\sqcup$}\cr% \raise-0.2\LMex\hbox{$\SavedStyle\sqcup$}}}{\sqcup}}}} ...

In case there is someone else out there looking for a solution, I will share what I have come up with after some trial and error. In this answer, the combination \mathrm{}\! is used to add a bit of spacing before a differential d. So I defined the following two commands to add space to the left and right of symbols: \newcommand\lxspace{\mathop{}\!} ...

A version lighter than using TikZ: \documentclass{article} \usepackage{pict2e} \DeclareRobustCommand{\kumarsymbol}{% \begingroup\setlength{\unitlength}{\fontcharht\font`A}% \begin{picture}(.5,1) \roundcap \put(0,1){\line(2,-1){.25}} \put(.25,.875){\line(0,-1){.75}} \put(.25,.125){\line(2,-1){.25}} \end{picture}% \endgroup } ...

Please give us more information about the meaning and its usage. I searched the unicode for you and the most similar would be the U+23B1. This symbol is quite curly, but with the font Code222 it could be acceptable. You will have to compile my MWE with Xe- or LuaLaTeX. I made the symbol applicable for math- and text-mode. Further improvements can be done ...

A pretty simple solution can be achieved with the tikz package. \documentclass{article} \usepackage{tikz} \newcommand\mysymbol{% \tikz[scale=.3]{\draw[very thick] (0,0) to ++(330:.5) to ++(0,-1) to ++(330:.5);}% } \begin{document} Two single \mysymbol and \mysymbol . \end{document}

If you are using pdfTeX, you can draw the symbol using PDF elementary commands and set it as the PDF form (this is like subroutine in PDF, the drawing commands are not repeated at the every instance of the symbol in PDF file). \def\drawmysymbol{\pdfliteral{q 1 J 0 8 m 3 5 l 3 1 l 6 -2 l S Q}} \setbox0=\hbox to8bp{\kern1bp\vrule height9bp depth3bp width0bp ...

I tried all of the above, and this worked the best, for me. You need to install the tipa package, and since your \lambdabar will be in math mode, you must use \mbox{} to take it back to text mode. It works with two lines of code, as shown below: \usepackage{tipa} \newcommand{\lambdabar}{\mbox{\textipa{\textcrlambda}}} here is the character, in a math ...

A great resource for this kind of question is the opaquely named Detexify, at http://detexify.kirelabs.org/classify.html. You sketch a shape with the mouse and it lists the TeX symbols that look like it, along with package and mode information. It did a great job with my very clumsy rendering of your symbol, finding as top matches the same symbols proposed ...

If you are able to use Lua- or XeLaTeX, you can just use the Unicode of this symbol which is U+2040. There will be quite a lot of fonts on your system that support this symbol. You could choose one, load the package fontspec and do: \newcommand*{\concat}{\fontspec{your-font-name}\mathbin{\text{\symbol{"2040}}}}. However, it would be easier to use the ...

Use $\overleftrightarrow{AB}$ with the mathtools or amsmath packages.

If you write in Portuguese, you need \usepackage[T1]{fontenc} and possibly add \usepackage{lmodern} to your document preamble. The first package is needed in order to make hyphenation of accented words possible also past an accent, which in Portuguese is essential. With this, an input such as Formato reconhecido <Especificador> will print as ...

View the Comprehensive LaTeX Symbol List and search for the macro of interest. You'll see it in Table 202: Miscellaneous AMS Math Symbols. As such, it requires an AMS-related package. In this case, amssymb: \documentclass{article} \usepackage{amssymb} \begin{document} The measure of $\angle{ABC}$ is expressed as $\measuredangle{ABC}$. \end{document}
