The following information was provided by our fellow contributor: Name of contribution: The Comprehensive LaTeX Symbol List Version number: 11.0 Author's name: Scott Pakin Location on CTAN: /info/symbols/comprehensive Summary description: Symbols accessible from LaTeX License type: lppl Announcement text:
The Comprehensive LaTeX Symbol List is an organized list of over 5900 symbols commonly available to LaTeX users. Some of these symbols are guaranteed to be available in every TeX distribution. Others require font files that come with some, but not all, TeX distributions. The rest require font files that must be downloaded explicitly from CTAN (http://www.ctan.org/) and installed. The Comprehensive LaTeX Symbol List currently showcases symbols from 130 separate typefaces. This new release of the Comprehensive LaTeX Symbol List (version 11.0) is a particularly exciting one. At long last the document has been fully hyperlinked! (This was not a simple manner of including a \usepackage{hyperref}; the document was filled with constructs that confused hyperref.) The list contain almost a thousand more symbols than before (a 20% increase), new "how to" prose in the Additional Information section, an expanded index with more "see..." entries, and other features designed to help the Comprehensive LaTeX Symbol List live up to its name. Enjoy!

## The Comprehensive LaTeX Symbol List – Symbols accessible from LaTeX

Over 14000 symbols are listed as a set of tables. The tables of symbols are ordered in a logical way (the document begins with a ‘frequently requested symbols’ list), the aim being to make the document a convenient way of looking up symbols.
