Is anybody knows how to insert the symbol for probability (a capital P with two lines, something like th symbol for real numbers) and the symbol for filtration (script letter F)

Thank you

I was not aware that special characters had to be used for these terms (unless specified by a publisher).

I found a script "f" as Unicode F070 in the StarMath font among statistical symbols.

I thought statistical probability was usually just given as an ordinary "P". Do you mean a double-struck capital P U+2100 - ℙ, the peso sign U+20A0 - ₱, or something like the modulus of P - |P| ? Can you give a reference to a site where it is used?

You will need to install the font(s) containing the characters you require:

To use a particular symbol have a look at the Help files under: symbols - adding in OpenOffice.org Math

it may not necessary to install new fonts. just type your formula as normal and then modify the fixed font. open your formula and go to format fonts. in 'custome fonts' change fixed to

Urw Chancery L

then

L ^2 ( %OMEGA , font fixed size *1.3 F , P)

will give you a nice curvy F. it is also good for curvy H for Hilbert space. The font "Urw Chancery L" I use is on Linux. on XP just scroll to see a good curvy font and use that.

I have a font called "SF Open Face" that has the P you need. A script font will provide the other.

Check:

http://www.masterliness.com/a/Blackboard.bold.htm

which indicates:

U+2119 ℙ Represents projective space, the probability of an event, or the prime numbers.

The Lucida fonts and Code2000 have this character. On Microsoft try Arial Unicode MS.
