Some math symbols I can't find

Postby rodolfoul on Mon Jun 21st, 2010

I'm looking for a symbol for closed surface integral. Something like \oiint.

I also need a skewed fraction symbol, like the one in microsoft word 2007. I did try
{}^{A}/_B but that does not give the correct size.
Does anyone know a symbol for any of these two?

Thanks in advance.

What is wrong with the existing symbol? You may take a look at the esint package.

In general you can use the nicefrac package. For fractions with units the siunitx package is very useful.


Best regards and welcome to the board

Well, the problem is that I didn't know a package that contained \oiint.

But thanks, that was exactly what I was looking for.

In such cases you can take a look at »The LaTeX Comprehensive Symbol List«.
