Letter w vs omega

Postby dsplib » Mon Nov 23, 2020 10:22 am

In mathematical formulas, when I type letter w, it becomes very similar to the greek omega. What is the best way to print a "triangular" letter w unlike omega in the equation.

In Equation case, if you want to use "w" as it is then you need to write it as a text.
For e.g.
Code: [Select all] [Expand/Collapse] [Download] ({untitled.tex})
  1. \begin{equation*}
  2. w = \text{w}+ \omega
  3. \end{equation*}

Here you see the difference between w in Equation, Omega and text 'w'.

Hope this is what you required.
Thank you.
