LaTeX harpoon vector symbol

My favorite vector symbol is a harpoon.

  1. in document header
    \usepackage{harpoon}
    \newcommand*{\vect}[1]{\overrightharp{\ensuremath{#1}}}
    
  2. in document body where desired.
    $\vect{x}$
    

Notes

  • The harpoon package defaults to text mode, which will fail when math characters like ell are used in the math mode.
  • reference
