I need to typeset letter with a circle above it in math. \dot A does a very close result, but I need something that looks like \circ, not like \cdot.

Edit: there is awesome answer here, but Detexify failed for me, and I tried looking up tables, but haven't found what I needed.

  • @AndrewSwann Sorry, I know that awesome site, but it have not given me answer. Apr 30, 2015 at 9:00
  • I was not thinking of detexify, but of texdoc symbols given as the first option in the top answer - table 164 Math mode accents, the same table containg \dot. That not only answers your question, but tells you how to find answers to similar questions. Apr 30, 2015 at 9:59
  • @AndrewSwann Thanks. As I mentioned, I was searching there, but haven't succeeded. Apr 30, 2015 at 10:02

1 Answer 1

Use \overset{\circ}{X} or \mathring{X} for letter X say

    \mathring - exactly what i needed! Apr 30, 2015 at 8:55

    I'd avoid the first: \mathring is the correct answer
