[SOLVED] sans serif font for vector space notation
Hi, all.

My linear algebra text uses a sans serif font for vector spaces. Here is a sample image where it talks about arbitrary vector space "V". Notice the font:

Is there some way to do this in latex?

Thanks!

\mathsf{V} gives $\mathsf{V}$. Is that what you are looking for ?
