How do I make a diagram like this? Thanks in advanceenter image description here

  • \documentclass{article} \usepackage{tikz-cd} \usepackage{amsfonts} \begin{document} \begin{tikzcd} & \mathbb{F} \arrow[dl,"\mu"'] \arrow[dr,"\nu"] & \\ \mathbb{P} & & \mathbb{M}\\ \end{tikzcd} \end{document} – user121799 Jul 31 '19 at 0:12
  • Have you tried some code? – Black Mild Jul 31 '19 at 0:15
  • \documentclass[tikz,border=2mm]{standalone} \usepackage{amsfonts} \begin{document} \begin{tikzpicture} \path (0,0) node (F) {$\mathbb{F}$} +(-45:1.5) node (M) {$\mathbb{M}$} +(-135:1.5) node (P) {$\mathbb{P}$}; \draw[->] (F)--(M) node[pos=.3,right]{$\nu$}; \draw[->] (F)--(P) node[pos=.3,left]{$\mu$}; \end{tikzpicture} \end{document} – Black Mild Jul 31 '19 at 0:23
  • @BlackMild Hey, thanks for the reply. Is there a way to make the arrows bigger? They are too short on my document. Also, How do I put it in the center of the page? Than – Thales Castro Jul 31 '19 at 0:30
  • @marmot Thanks for the reply. The letters above the arrows do not appear for some reason – Thales Castro Jul 31 '19 at 0:31

Such diagrams can be drawn with tikz-cd. This site is full of examples, and the manual is very well written.

 & \mathbb{F} \arrow[dl,"\mu"'] \arrow[dr,"\nu"] &  \\
 \mathbb{P} & & \mathbb{M}\\

For bigger arrows, you can use [line width=1pt] or [thick] right after \begin{tikzpicture}.

enter image description here

(0,0)       node (F) {$\mathbb{F}$}
+(-45:1.5)  node (M) {$\mathbb{M}$}
+(-135:1.5) node (P) {$\mathbb{P}$};
\draw[->] (F)--(M) node[pos=.3,right]{$\nu$};
\draw[->] (F)--(P) node[pos=.3,left]{$\mu$};
  • @marmot nope! my mind is free. My code is elegant, so I make it community wiki – Black Mild Jul 31 '19 at 1:17
  • @marmot I recommend you unretiring! – Black Mild Jul 31 '19 at 1:20
  • Your solution is original, but a tikz-cd one is more flexible and simpler. – CarLaTeX Jul 31 '19 at 12:10
  • @CarLaTeX: with (original) plain tikz, I can fine-tune every commuative diagram. I don't know why tikz-cd is more flexible! I think tikz-cd is well-fitted for one who are not familiar with tikz. The amount of time for learning new syntax, new commands of tikz-cd is equal the amount of time for learning basic TikZ. – Black Mild Jul 31 '19 at 16:43
  • It's more flexible because you don't have to set the positions explicitly. It's more convenient if you have to add new elements. – CarLaTeX Jul 31 '19 at 17:45

Here there is my proposal using the same tips of tikz-cd but with another package called xy. I have added \usepackage[bb = boondox]{mathalfa} to give you the same mathematical double struck capital. With the option @R=.6pc@C=.6pc you can increase or decrease the lenghts of the rows R, or the columns C.

enter image description here

\usepackage[bb = boondox]{mathalfa}
   { & \mathbb{F} \ar[dl]_{\scriptscriptstyle\mu} \ar[dr]^{\scriptscriptstyle\nu}  & \\
     \mathbb{P} & & \mathbb{M}


For further information on how put the labels neighbours to the arrows, there is specific my question with an answer in this link: Labels closer to the arrows with xy package
