The LaTeX latexsym package

Version: 3.x, 4.x, 5.x - Scientific WorkPlace & Scientific Word

The latexsym package provides 11 math symbols that were originally defined in LaTeX2.09 but are no longer defined in the New Font Selection Scheme. The symbols are

Math: inverted ohm sign, join relation, square Math: Diamond , leads to Math: square image of Math: square original of Math: var triangle left relation Math: triangle left equal relation Math: var triangle right relation Math: triangle right equal relation

These symbols are also provided by the amsfonts and amssymb packages. Because SWP and SW call the amsfonts package automatically, ordinarily you don't need to add the latexsym package to your document to obtain the symbols.

No package options are available. The latexsym package is installed in the TCITeX/TeX/LaTeX/base directory.
