 Quote by bartadam How do I do a wide check symbol in latex? A wide hat or wide tilde is easy, it is simply \widehat{long expression} or \widetilde{longexpression} There is no command for wide check, i.e an upside down hat.
You can install the mathabx fonts found here:

http://www.ctan.org/tex-archive/fonts/mathabx/

which contain a widecheck. Once they are installed, you can use them with the regular \usepackage command:

\documentclass{article}

\usepackage{mathabx}

\begin{document}

$\widecheck{asdf}$

\end{document}
