LaTeX Math Symbols

Prepared by L. Kocbach, on the basis of this document (origin: David Carlisle, Manchester University)

File A.tex contains all necessary code
This file is prepared by running
latex A.tex
and cutting the pictures out of the resulting preview. Relevant parts of the latex code are reproduced under each of the pictures.
Some of the symbols have an explanatory text. This text is found in the latex code, mostly stating that they are parts of some spacial setup and cannot be used in standard LaTeX. Each of the figures also has a link to itself.
