I tried \cancel{\Rightarrow}, but perhaps I am installing the package improperly or something.

    $\begingroup$ Oh, sorry -- I thought saw lots of LaTeX questions. But I found the answer -- \not\Rightarrow $\not\Rightarrow$ $\endgroup$ Commented Apr 18, 2012 at 2:48
  • $\begingroup$ @DavidLewis" That, unfortunately, gives bad spacing; but lucky for you there is a pre-built command. $\endgroup$ Commented Apr 18, 2012 at 2:52

  • $\begingroup$ There is a difference in asking for (la)tex support which is available on Math.SE, vs plain (la)tex support. You will see lots of questions of the former type on meta.math but probably very few upvoted ones of the latter. $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ The repost at TeX-SX has a little more context (see tex.stackexchange.com/q/52827/86) making it clear that the question is about packages with MathJaX. "How do I do X in MathJaX?" is off-topic on TeX-SX as it is not a question about TeX. Please only refer genuine TeX (including, but not limited to, LaTeX) questions to TeX-SX. $\endgroup$ Commented Apr 21, 2012 at 18:59

\nRightarrow gives $\nRightarrow$

Added: For a thorough discussion of \implies vs. \Rightarrow, see this TeX.stackexchange question.

Unfortunately, it looks like \centernot is not supported in MathJax, nor is the solution using \ooalign


You can always write: $$\lnot(\varphi\implies\psi)$$


If you want to denote implication, it is usually best to use \implies from amsmath, which adjusts spacing (and dots).

  • $\begingroup$ How do you negate \implies? \not\implies gives poor alignment. Tx. $\endgroup$ Commented Apr 18, 2012 at 4:34

    $\begingroup$ @DavidLewis You could use \kern; though it won't be perfect "\kern.6em\not\kern -.6em \implies" gives $ \kern.6em\not\kern -.6em \implies$. $\endgroup$ Commented Apr 18, 2012 at 18:04
  • $\begingroup$ @DavidMitra Perfect substitute for \nimplies $\endgroup$
