Not much to this question, just can't find the name.

I cannot find what this symbol is called, its like a n with a tail before it. It is something to do with eigenvectors in my context.

Purpose is I need to put it in LaTeX.

weird n with a curve before it

    $\begingroup$ In LaTeX it is given by \eta. FYI see here. $\endgroup$ – TheSimpliFire Feb 2 '19 at 19:01

I assume you are refering to

$$\large\eta$$

which is the greek letter "eta".

    $\begingroup$ @HectorHaffenden Okay. to add some more context: the letter "eta" $\eta$ aswell as the letter "lambda" $\lambda$ are commonly used to denote eigenvectors and eigenvalues respectively. $\endgroup$ – mrtaurho Feb 2 '19 at 19:05

    $\begingroup$ @HectorHaffenden No need for apologies. I didn't know it for myself for a long time and only heard stories that this could happen in connection with serial votings. However, I appreciate your compliment as you would determine my posts as valuable and you surely can upvote them; but maybe not all at once ;) $\endgroup$ – mrtaurho May 13 '19 at 10:12

Actually, in your post it is $$ \hat{\eta}_A. $$ The greek letter is $\eta$.
