Tex symbols

  1. Oct 16, 2005 #1
    Hmm... I'm writing a paper and trying to figure out how to make an x-vector symbol.. as in:
    Code (Text):
    \beq ds^2=d(\overrightarrow{x})^2+dt^2 \eeq
    Except with a smaller arrow over the x, as would be seen in a real paper.

    perhaps $\vec{x}$? that gives you the standard vector arrow if you like that ;)

    [tex] ds^2=d(\overrightarrow{x})^2+dt^2 [/tex]

    [tex] ds^2=d(\vec{x})^2+dt^2 [/tex]
