When the Struggle is Real
- I couldn’t find this symbol (shown below -> specifically the subscripted “E”). The guy teaching refers to it as “Expression” but I couldn’t find it on Math Stack Exchange or in LaTeX documentation. So I tweeted and asked my Computational Mathematics friend about it. We’ll see.
Yup…this little guy here in the Subscript.
Solved it by using
- Got back from drinking with German scientists at JPL, and was informed that it is an old-school Math-Cal symbol. There is a library using Lucida Calligraphy that can duplicate it. See this conversation on Math Stack Exchange. Yay. Problem solved!
I attend the JPL German Club once a month. It’s really fun! It’s tonight, so looking forward to it.
I learned how to insert a therefore in LaTeX :) I enjoy hanging out with my mentor because he also deeply appreciates (and has been using for many years) LaTeX. I really enjoy using it and hope to get better at it and use it professionally as long as I can (or even just for fun).
