### Newbie question - mathematica fonts in Latex

Hi all,

Can somebody please tell me how I can produce mathematica fonts
in latex? In particular, I need to produce the mathematica symbol
obtained by typing <Esc>ii<Esc> in a*document. Any help is greatly
appreciated.

Search the google archive of comp.text.tex for "mathematica fonts"

Look at the comprehensive symbol list on CTAN.

Hello,

if you you are using MikTeX you should have a look at the following page:

http://www.veryComputer.com/

On this side youll find all information you need to include all necessary
files. If you follow the given advices, youll also able to use symbols you
need.

Wow - am I the only one who thought that one helpful answer to the
question would be: $\mathbb{i}$ (using the amsfonts package) ?

(I don't have a TeX distro in front of me, but I _think_ that makes
the i-of-imaginary-numbers)

:)

There is no such symbol in the AMS fonts.

The imaginary unit should simply be upright:  \mathrm{i}.  No extra
package is required.  (However, I don't know whether this is actually
the symbol obtained by typing <Esc>ii<Esc> in Mathematica.)

No, but

\usepackage{bbm}
...

$\mathbbm{i}$

should do the trick.

Perhaps, but it may not be so helpful.

Here it makes a hebrew letter (I think it is beth). The
AMS fonts have only ever contained uppercase blackboard bold (apart
from one or two exceptions). I'm pretty sure the bbold package (or is
it mathbbold?) contains lowercase and there are probably others. The
comprehensive symbols list is the best place to look.

Mathematica's symbol for i is actually a double-struck (that is,
blackboard bold) _italic_ lowercase "i".  On screen it doesn't look
very italic, but in print it does.  There are a few such letters:
i, j, e, d, and D.  There is also a full blackboard bold alphabet,
where the letters are not italic in shape.

I agree with Walter, though, in preferring \mathrm{i}.

Maybe you are the only one who knows what character <Esc>ii<Esc>
produces.

Hi,

Your Mathematica come with a large documentation
in \$TopDirectory/SystemFiles/IncludeFiles/TeX/texmf/doc/wolfram
how to install the virtual fonts.

Hi !

I'm a complete newbie with TeX, and am looking for the way to install the
hyperref package.

I don't know how to install this (found the .INS file, but what should I do)
?
