## pdfMsym – PDF Math Symbols — various drawn mathematical symbols

This package defines a handful of mathematical symbols many of which are implemented via PDF’s builtin drawing utility. It is intended for use with pdfTeX and LuaTeX and is supported by XeTeX to a lesser extent.

Among the symbols it defines are some variants of commonly used ones, as well as more obscure symbols which cannot be as easily found in other TeX or LaTeX packages.
