How to be codes for trigonometric arc AB like that:enter image description here

( not using kpfonts ). Thanks.

    Welcome! What have you tried? Where have you looked? Why are you stuck? If you are particular about fonts, which are you using? A minimal example would be the ideal way to provide some of this information. – cfr Feb 8 '16 at 2:30
  • Are you using XeTeX or LuaTeX? – Joel Reyes Noche Feb 8 '16 at 12:16
  • Thank you for replying. I can use kpfonts to make it but all fonts in the document changed. Is there a way to make that symbol but reserving all the other fonts. I don't know using XeTex or LuaTex. – Exdata Feb 8 '16 at 13:42

You could draw this with tikz:

Sample output

\documentclass{article}

\usepackage{amsmath,tikz}

\newcommand{\curvearc}{\tikz[trim left]{\draw[->] (0,0) to[bend left] (1em,0);}}

\begin{document}

\( \stackrel{\curvearc}{AB} \)

\end{document}

If you would like the width of this arrow symbol to vary with the material underneath and then you can use the following more complicated definition:

Sample output

\documentclass{article}

\usepackage{amsmath,tikz}

\newlength{\curvearclength}
\newcommand{\curvearcover}[1]{\mathpalette\curvearcoverhelper{#1}}
\newcommand{\curvearcoverhelper}[2]{%
  \settowidth{\curvearclength}{\( #1#2 \)}%
  \setlength{\curvearclength}{0.6\curvearclength}%
  \stackrel{\tikz[trim left]{\draw[->] (0,0) to[bend left] 
    (\the\curvearclength,0);}}{#1#2}}

\begin{document}

\( \curvearcover{AB} \)

\bigskip

\( \curvearcover{IJ} \)

\bigskip

\( \scriptstyle\curvearcover{AB} \)

\end{document}

  • \newcommand*\curvearc[2][1em]{\overset{\tikz[trim left]\draw[->](0,0)to[bend left]({#1},0);}{#2}} might be more practical. – Manuel Feb 10 '16 at 18:34
  • @Manuel Indeed - code now added to make the measuring automatic. – Andrew Swann Feb 12 '16 at 12:37

\usepackage{fourier}

Then

$\wideOarc{AB}$

However, as Andrew Swann noted in a comment, loading the fourier package changes all the fonts in the document.
