# Free Font for Math Symbols?

Is there a source for a free math symbol font(s)?

I already checked 1000 freefonts but they don't seem to have any math symbol fonts. Or I didn't find them.

I'm looking for some of the more obscure math symbols.

The backwards capital E (there exists, there is, there are; existential quantification)

the logical negation symbol (can't be reproduced hee).

I googled free math symbol fonts and got many results

Did you actually follow any of those links from the Google results, as none of them give anything useful

Here is a screenshot after installing on my PC: There are some symbols that brothertruffle880 mentioned in his question.

I never select the first 1 or 2 Google results as they are ofted advertising!

True - nice one Paulsauve - I was looking specifically for 'fonts' you can install eg: ttf files

Looking at the last line of your screenshot led me to try in Word directly (now I know what to look for)

In MS Word, go to Insert > Symbol

Change the font to Arial Unicode MS, and the subset to Mathematical Operators (this font exists in at least Word 2003 onwards - I can't check earlier versions)

It will list all of the above, without the need to install anything, and give you the unicode code too just in case you need it

Ahhh, the ol' binomial theorum eh !

ASKER

Is there a place that lists all of the ALT X characters?

Do you know of any reputable font vendors?
