# Thread: What font is this?

1. ## What font is this?

I tried \mathscr{H}, but that gives a much slantier H than this.

2. What's the context? You could try a \mathcal{H}, but that looks like this:

$\mathcal{H}.$

Is it in a math environment? Could you maybe post a scan of the page in which you find it?

3. Yes, it's in math context. It appears in Problem 7 on this page: http://www.math.upenn.edu/~cle/amcs609/ps3.pdf

4. Well, the Ralph Smith font is close. That's as close as I can get at the moment, without a lot more searching.

That's a nice symbol, and it doesn't appear to belong in any of the standard LaTeX fonts. Why not ask Dr Epstein how he does it, and then let us know here!
