[Solved] Symbol for preference relations

Postby moeter » Sat Oct 20, 2012 9:51 pm

Does anybody know if there exist symbols for preference relations ? I can´t post the symbols but they look quite similiar to the "normal" symbols for relations, such as "<". But they are a little bit more curvy. You can see this symbols for examples at Wikipedia --> article: "Preference (economics)" --> "Axioms of order" --> first line. Thank you very much!

Maybe U+227a through U+2281? ≺ ≻ ≼ ≽ ≾ ≿ ⊀ ⊁ The Unicode names are "PRECEDES" and "SUCCEEDS".

You can copy/paste the characters themselves, or make your own named symbols, if OOo Math doesn't already name them.
