I'm writing some integrals and I don't like the way the \int symbol is displayed when it is followed by a big delimiter. Here's the code:

\[
\int_S\biggl(\nabla\times\bar B - \mu_0\bar J -
\mu_0\varepsilon_0\frac{\partial\bar E}{\partial t}\biggr) \cdot\hat n\,ds = 0
\]

And here's the output:

What I'd like to have is an integral sign taller than the parenthesis, as if it would have a sort of \bigg command right before. Is there any way to do this, or the \int symbol is impossible to modify?

  • There are a number of integral symbols in various packages. Check out symbols. I don't know if any of them have more than two sizes though. I suspect not. – TH. Aug 27 '10 at 11:38

Maybe the bigints package? http://www.ctan.org/tex-archive/macros/latex/contrib/bigints/
