Some math symbols I can't find

Postby rodolfoul » Mon Jun 21, 2010 3:27 am

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.

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«.
