Griffiths' E-M Notation

Hi there

Griffiths uses a nice notation for the vector from the source point to the field point --a "squiggly r" -- in his E-M textbook. He calls it a "script letter". It makes many ugly expressions look much simpler.

Anyway, nice as it is, does anyone who has used Griffiths know how to produce that "squiggly r", in LaTeX or using some standard symbol font? I'm trying to typeset some stuff and I've been stumped trying to find it!

Thank you!

I remember looking for this about a year ago. After searching extensively, I came across a site claiming that this was a special font developed for the purpose of the book. Whether or not I believe it, after a couple days of searching, I hadn't found anything, so I ended up using the fcursive font package. Take a look and see if you can be satisfied with as little as I was =)

Good luck,
a.
