Is it possible to use the curled beta: ϐ (U+03D0) in a formula?

There are variants available for `\epsilon`

, `\theta`

, `\phi`

, `\rho`

, `\sigma`

and `\phi`

with `\varepsilon`

, `\vartheta`

, etc… but there is no `\varbeta`

. Why is that?

## Best Answer

You can with XeLaTeX and the

`mathspec`

package:Here

`Cambria Math`

can be replaced by any font on your filesystem that supports this character. Fileformat.info has a list of all known fonts supporting it and a list of locally installed fonts that support it.As egreg notes, you can also do it with the

`unicode-math`

package:
