How does one create the symbol for EMF (electromotive force) used in physics for a LaTeX document? It is like \varepsilon but uppercased.

  • @hftf I'm not sure this really should be a duplicate, because the symbol used for EMF is \mathcal{E} (I've written it many times, I know), but the other question's poster specifically says that is not the symbol they're looking for.

  • @DavidZ I've never seen it written \mathcal{E}.

  • @hftf well, now you have, or at least you know someone who has. ;-) I guess there must be some variation between sources, but pretty much every time I remember seeing it, the symbol seems like an exact match to the calligraphic E.

Is this close enough?


    \[\mathcal{E} \varepsilon \]
