I like to use fouriernc package. But unfortunately the mathcal font in this package doesn't look nice to me and I would like to ask if it is possible to use this package while changing the mathcal font, say in mathpazo package.



In mathpazo.sty we find

 \DeclareSymbolFontAlphabet{\mathcal}   {symbols}

which sends us to

\DeclareSymbolFont{symbols}       {OMS}{zplm}{m}{n}

You can then do


See texdoc fntguide for more information. The second line is for the \boldmath version.

Full example:




This is math: $a+b\in\mathcal{F}(Z)$.

Without the suggested declaration, we'd get

I have never used mathpazo before, but here's a possible solution





\sin(x) = x + \mathcal{O}(x^3)
