How do you do Dirac slash notation using LaTeX?

For instance, I want to be able to type

[tex] /\partial = \gamma_i \partial^i [/tex]

[tex] /p = \gamma_i p^i [/tex]

[tex] /A = \gamma _i A^i [/tex]

with the slashes running through the symbols [tex] \partial [/tex], p, and A.

Here's a crude make-shift attempt for whatever it's worth. I just did this by goofing around.

I have no idea how to do it formally, of if there even is a formal way to do it.

[tex] \displaystyle{\not} \partial = \gamma_i \partial^i [/tex]

[tex] \displaystyle{\not} p = \gamma_i p^i [/tex]

[tex] \displaystyle{\not}A = \gamma _i A^i [/tex]
