Is there a way to have symbol with a tilde and arrow stacked on top of each other? I tried $\vec \tilde{p}$ but it doesn't look good.

    Try $\vec{\tilde{p}}$

  • another way using mathtools-package: $\overset{\tilde{\rightarrow}}{p}$

  • You should load the amsmath package and write $\vec{\tilde{p}}$.

The nicest, in my opinion, is obtained with a \widetilde and the esvect package. In most cases, we need to add some kerning:




\[ \vv{\!\widetilde p}\qquad\vec{\tilde p}\qquad \overset{\rightarrow}{\!\widetilde p}\qquad \overrightarrow{\!\widetilde p} \]
