script "r"

Postby riemann.integirl » Tue Jun 05, 2007 5:47 pm

I am trying to insert a script style lower case "r" into my document. This is in an attempt to mimic the lower case script r in "Introduction to Electrodynamics" by Griffiths. If you aren't familiar with that, then the lower case "r" at this link is fairly similar to what I'm looking for: ... indeer.htm
I've tried $\mathcal{r}$ Rolling Eyes but that turns out to look like an upside down upper case delta, otherwise known as a "del". Thanks so much for your help!

Have a look at the frcursive fonts (it's metafont, but there's also a beta type 1). It's distribted with MiKTeX (metafont only), but you should also visit the home page:

This worked for me:


I also added


So the Griffiths' r is generated by \scripty{r}.
You can use it as the argument of \hat or \mathbf for vectors.

All info from the CTAN comprehensive symbol list, BTW.

Yay E&M!
