    What font is this?

    What font is this?-script-h.png

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

    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?

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

    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!
