Hypertext Help with LaTeX
Latex provides commands for all sorts of arrows. The following commands
are used only in math mode.
In general the command names are created from "left", "right", "up", or
"down". "leftright" gives a double headed arrow.
Prefacing with "long" gives a longer arrow. Capitalizing the
first letter gives a double-shanked arrow.
The \stackrel command is
useful for putting things over or under your arrow.
- \nearrow points from southwest to northeast
- \searrow points from northwest to southeast
- \swarrow points from northeast to southwest
- \nwarrow points from southeast to northwest
