I would like to know if there is a package that allows text to print like the following output from Wolfram Mathematica.

So basically the c_1 and c_2 that appears below. What is the best approach for this?

Style that I want

  • Which approach is "best" for you strongly depends on which math fonts are available on your system. For instance, is the Mathematica font for LaTeX installed? One way to find out is to compile the following test document: \documentclass{article} \usepackage[bb=mma]{mathalpha} \begin{document} $\mathbb{c}_1+\mathtt{t}\mathbb{c}_2$ \end{document}. Give it a try. (I trust you've figured out that mma is shorthand for Mathematica.)

  • @Mico I have mathalpha installed in MiKTeX Console but I get Font U/mmambb/m/n/10=mmambb at 10.0pt not loadable: Metric (TFM) file not found. <to be read again> Commented Nov 15, 2020 at 11:10
  • With all respect due to the people at Wolfram, their usage of doubly stroked symbols is terribly awful.

  • @egreg I mean I just wanted to have a way to distinguish constants from functions, and since I've been using Mathematica I thought I'd look for ways to replicate what they have done Commented Nov 15, 2020 at 11:18
  • There is even the bbold package
