My answer simply confirms the comment of the very good @JouleV user, adding a minimum compilation code and a clarification of the font used. newtxtext package give a font Times clone; in mathematical mode to have the same characters Times you can add newtxmath.

w in text mode and w in math-mode: $w$.

Very similar also with Cambria Math, often used in other writing programs is very close to the image. See this code compilable with LuaLaTeX.

\setmathfont{Cambria Math}
