How to use LaTeX Double Up Arrow Symbol

To write the double up arrow symbol (⇑) in LaTeX, use the LaTeX command \Uparrow. It will add ⇑ arrow in the text.

In this article, we will discuss how to use upward double arrow (⇑) in the LaTeX document and their significance in the mathematical expressions and logical statements.

Symbol Overview

Symbol: Double Up Arrow

Unicode: U+21D1

Type: Mathematical

Package Requirement: None (built-in symbol)

Argument: None (no additional arguments needed)

LaTeX Command: \Uparrow



The double up arrow represented as a double-headed upwards pointing arrow (⇑) is available in LaTeX. It is used to indicate a upward directional relationship. In mathematics context, it is used to represents the logical implication or “if-then” statements with upward consequences. In logical context, it is used in operations such as “if and only if” with upward consequences.


The LaTeX command \Uparrow is used to display the double up arrow symbol.


Let’s understand using double up arrow symbol in various domains like mathematics, logical context with the help of examples.

Using the Double Up Arrow Symbol in a Mathematical Expression

\[ x \Uparrow y \]

Output: 👇️

x ⇑ y

Here in the above example, x \Uparrow y represents a logical implication, indicating that if ‘x’ is true then ‘y’ is also true, with upward consequences.

Using the Double-headed Up Arrow Symbol in Logical Statement

\[ P \land Q \Uparrow (P \lor \neg Q) \]

Output: 👇️

P ∧ Q ⇑ (P ∨ ¬Q)

In the above example, the \Uparrow represents the “if and only if” operation in the logical statement. Logical statement is true when the both ‘P’ and ‘Q’ have the same truth value, with upward consequences.


The doouble up arrow symbol has versatile applications in LaTeX documents such as:

  • Represents logical implications or “if-then” statements with upward consequences in mathematical expression or equations.
  • Indicates logical equivalence or “if and only if” relationships with upward consequences in logical statement.


Using the double sided up arrow symbol in LaTeX documents, you can use it in document where upward directional relationships, logical implications, and logical equivalence are required. It helps to create visually appealing and formatted documents with enhanced mathematical and logical representations.
