I was unable to find the symbol in http://detexify.kirelabs.org/classify.html. You might find it in http://www.ctan.org/pkg/comprehensive. See also How to look up a symbol or identify a math symbol or character?.

Until someone posts a better solution, you might want to go with this.





This \Varpi{} works.

This A $\Varpi$ B and $A \Varpi B$, too.

  • no, the symbol requested really is a cyrillic Sha, and the question is a duplicate of the question linked in a comment. that's not the only way to get this symbol though. depending on what font is used, with utf8 input there are other methods; see What packages will let me use Cyrillic characters in math mode? for possibilities. – barbara beeton Mar 25 '17 at 3:17
  • Indeed. I was not aware of Ш and was pretty sure that there is a better solution: "Until someone posts a better solution...". I hope that mixing different fonts works well in this case. – CampanIgnis Mar 25 '17 at 11:20
