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

\ddot
Math dieresis accent
\dot

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).
