I'm having a lot of difficulty in finding an explicit explanation of how to use the "Mathematica Fraktur", as defined in the top answer of this post: What are all the font styles I can use in math mode?

I suppose then my question is:

How, when using $\mathfrak{A}$, do I get the output to be the letter A, but in the font "Mathematica Fraktur", without changing the font of my entire document?

  • Welcome to TeX.SX! That font is commercial, as far as I know.

If you own the font in question, then you can use the mathalfapackage as mentioned in the answer linked in the question.

The explicit explanation you were asking for is this: The documentation of the mathalfa package states, that the following command would select "Mathematica Fraktur" for the output of \mathfrak and \mathbfrak:

  • It would seem, though, that this solution still relies on you owning the font, however. Am I mistaken? Commented Nov 1, 2017 at 11:09
  • Yes, you must own the font. This is just an answer to the bit about setting a font for \mathfrak without changing the font for the whole document. I will adjust my answer accordingly.
