    How do you guys do slashes for [tex]\gamma_\mu p^\mu = \not p[/tex]

    that p slash is a /not p, but it looks bad. I've tried finding a better way but I'm not sure how. What do you guys do?

    [tex] \not p[/tex] = \not p
    [tex] \displaystyle{\not} p[/tex] = \displaystyle{\not} p

    Why? Beats me.

    Here's another trick that's sometimes used

    [tex]p\!\!\!/[/tex] = p\!\!\!/

    Otherwise, you can also you the \cancel{P} to do the same thing.
