Does anybody know the LaTeX Code for curly H used for Hausdorff dimension?

Below are two different math fonts that may assist you in what you want:

\documentclass{article}

\usepackage{amsmath,amssymb}

\begin{document}
$\mathcal{H}\quad\mathfrak{H}$
\end{document}

See the The Comprehensive LATEX Symbol List under Math Alphabets.

An alternative source for all TeX and LaTeX package information and general documentation is texdoc.net. For example, to find the symbol list, on can search for comprehensive and you will get two formats: a4 and letterpaper. Here is a snapshot:

    @azetina: please don't quote www.ctan.org (it puts unreasonable load on an old machine with poor connectivity, soon to be withdrawn), please use CTAN's preferred mirror.ctan.org instead. Nov 16, 2012 at 11:20

    @wasteofspace Or simply google The Comprehensive LATEX Symbol List right? :-)

Try this one:

Use the free package mathrsfs

\usepackage{mathrsfs}

Use the following to get the desired symbol:

$\mathscr{H}$

Here is the output:

    This is already included in azetina’s response.

  • Ahh, you are correct. Look, here was the problem. I was also looking for answers to the same question, I read his response. However it was a lot of information for a simple job. Naturally that answer did not help much. So I went on and looked for all by myself. When I found out, I thought of posting it and I did. My intention was not to disrespect, but to help someone out in hurry. Dec 6, 2017 at 17:40

A better way of doing it using the MTPro2. Using this package, you can easily create the Hilbert space symbol with $\mathscr{H}$. Here is the image of what it generates.
