deci-

$\mathrm d$

The Système Internationale d'Unités symbol for the metric scaling prefix deci, denoting $10^{\, -1 }$, is $\mathrm { d }$.


Its $\LaTeX$ code is \mathrm {d} .


deka-

$\mathrm {da}$

The Système Internationale d'Unités symbol for the metric scaling prefix deka, denoting $10^{\, 1 }$, is $\mathrm { da }$.


Its $\LaTeX$ code is \mathrm {da} .


Hexadecimal

$\mathrm D$ or $\mathrm d$

The hexadecimal digit $13$.


Its $\LaTeX$ code is \mathrm D  or \mathrm d.


Roman Numeral

$\mathrm D$ or $\mathrm d$

The Roman numeral for $500$.


Its $\LaTeX$ code is \mathrm D  or \mathrm d.


Integral Domain

$D$

Used as a variable denoting the general integral domain.


Integral Domain as Algebraic Structure

$\struct {D, +, \circ}$

The full specification for an integral domain, where $+$ and $\circ$ are respectively the ring addition and ring product operations.


Its $\LaTeX$ code is \struct {D, +, \circ} .


Ordered Integral Domain

$\struct {D, +, \circ, \le}$

This specifies an ordered integral domain which is totally ordered by the ordering $\le$.


Its $\LaTeX$ code is \struct {D, +, \circ, \le} .


Non-Zero Elements of Integral Domain

$D^*$

Let $\struct {D, +, \circ}$ be an integral domain whose zero is $0_D$.


Then $D^*$ denotes the set $D \setminus \set {0_D}$.


Its $\LaTeX$ code is D^* .


Non-Negative Elements of Ordered Integral Domain

$D_+$

Let $\struct {D, +, \circ, \le}$ be an ordered integral domain whose zero is $0_D$.


Then $D_+$ denotes the set $\set {x \in D: 0_D \le x}$, that is, the set of all positive (that is, non-negative) elements of $D$.


Its $\LaTeX$ code is D_+ .


Positive Elements of Ordered Integral Domain

$D_+^*$

Let $\struct {D, +, \circ, \le}$ be an ordered integral domain whose zero is $0_D$.


Then $D_+^*$ denotes the set $\set {x \in D: 0_D < x}$, that is, the set of all strictly positive elements of $D$.


Some sources denote this as $D^+$, but this style of notation makes it difficult to distinguish between this and $D_+$.


Its $\LaTeX$ code is D_+^* .


Decimetre

$\mathrm {dm}$

The symbol for the decimetre is $\mathrm {dm}$:

$\mathrm d$ for deci
$\mathrm m$ for metre.


Its $\LaTeX$ code is \mathrm {dm} .


Pennyweight

$\mathrm {dwt}$

The symbol for the pennyweight is $\text{dwt}$.

This derives from the Latin denarius, which evolved into the (old) penny.


Its $\LaTeX$ code is \mathrm {dwt} .


Electric Displacement Field

$\mathbf D$

The electric displacement field is a vector quantity defined as the electric field strength multiplied by the permittivity of the medium through which it passes:

$\mathbf D = \varepsilon \mathbf E$

where:

$\varepsilon$ is the permittivity of the medium
$\mathbf E$ is the electric field strength


Its $\LaTeX$ code is \mathrm D .
