This pack­age de­fines a sin­gle com­mand \actuarialangle to type­set nice look­ing "an­gles" in ac­tu­ar­ial and fi­nan­cial no­ta­tion, such as in sym­bols for the present value of an an­nu­ity.


Public Do­main


The code in this pack­age was given to me (Vin­cent Goulet <vin­cent.goulet@act.ulaval.ca>) by a for­mer col­league who would sim­ply copy it in the pream­ble of all his doc­u­ments need­ing an "an­gle" sym­bol. The ac­tual au­thor of the code is un­known.

My sole con­tri­bu­tion was to make a pack­age out of the code.


The pack­age is part of Live and MiK. If it is not al­ready in­stalled on your sys­tem, copy actuarialangle.sty where can find it.


Load the pack­age as usual with


Then, in math mode, use


to type­set "an­gle n". For a com­plete present value sym­bol, use some­thing like


You will most likely want to use the fol­low­ing short­cuts:

  • \angl for \actuarialangle
  • \angln for \angl{n}
  • \anglr for \angl{r}
