Latex - how to do Dirac slash notation

    Latex -- how to do Dirac slash notation

    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. :biggrin:

    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]
