[Tex/LaTex] frown and mathop/stackrel/overset


I need something like \stackrel{\frown}{MM'} to express the fact that MM' is some path. But I am not really satisfied by the look of the result. The \frown is too high. Would you please have a suggestion?

Edit 1: I just discovered that the font I'm using, ie kpfonts, offers a nice widearc command which suits my needs.

You may try \wideparen from the yhmath package:


In case you don't want to change the largesymbol font, it's possible to load only the \wideparen accent:
