[Tex/LaTex] Making a thicker \cdot for dot product (that is thinner than \bullet)


I'm trying to replicate the dot that my professor uses in his notes for the dot product between vectors but I am having a hard time doing so. This is what it looks like:

enter image description here

I have tried a couple of things. \cdot is too thin


and \bullet is too thick

enter image description here

and using \Large with \cdot gives an error. Moreover, after digging through the list of symbols I cannot find a nice medium between \cdot and \bullet.

How can I get a dot closest to the first picture?

May be you find a better name like \dotp or something like that.



$a \bigcdot b$
