# LaTeX : P slash and partial slash

How do you guys do slashes for $$\gamma_\mu p^\mu = \not p$$

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?

$$\not p$$ = \not p
$$\displaystyle{\not} p$$ = \displaystyle{\not} p

Why? Beats me.

Here's another trick that's sometimes used

$$p\!\!\!/$$ = p\!\!\!/

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