flouran,

You are gonna love this site:

http://detexify.kirelabs.org/classify.html

You draw the LaTeX symbol you want, and it finds it for you.

It isn't perfect, but hopefully it is helpful.

Cheers,
Pace

Jeff.
I am not a big Windows fan myself. I typically use vim as my editor under Linux.

vim, of course, won't help you find the symbols, making it fairly irrelevant for this thread.

I don't suppose you have any experience with custom vim syntax highlighting files, flouran? I'm writing one at the moment.

I wasn't trying to say that it was, Charles
I was saying that I just like using it as an editor (and at the same time expressing my dislike for anything that runs on Windows).

Nope. May I ask why you are writing one?

1. When I have an overhead bar, i.e.:

\bar{ab},

my LaTeX compiler does not have the line cover both the letters. Instead it only covers the middle part of the two letters (and does not extend all the way). Does anyone else have similar problems or is it just something that I can't fix?

Wow, déjà vu! Use \overline{}: \overline{x^2+y^2}

On pg. 591 (or page 5 of the pdf file) of this paper: http://math.dartmouth.edu/~carlp/PDF/paper32.pdf
the following relation is given:
\frac{1}{x}\Psi(x,y) ? \frac{1}{\pi(x)}\Psi'(x,y).

How do I typeset the symbol in place of ?.
