16.4 Math accents

LaTeX provides a variety of commands for producing accented letters in math. These are different from accents in normal text (see Accents).

\acute

Math acute accent

\bar

Math bar-over accent

\breve

Math breve accent

\check

Math háček (check) accent

\ddot

Math dieresis accent

\dot

Math dot accent

\grave

Math grave accent

\hat

Math hat (circumflex) accent

\mathring

Math ring accent

\tilde

Math tilde accent

\vec

Math vector symbol

\widehat

Math wide hat accent

\widetilde

Math wide tilde accent

When you are putting an accent on an i or a j, the tradition is to use one without a dot, \imath or jmath (see Math symbols).
