Blackboard bold is probably the most common way of denoting the "standard" number sets: the natural numbers, the integers and so on. In AMS-LaTeX, you use the \mathbb{...} command to obtain them; the ConTeXt way is the \blackboard{...} command. Also, the following commands are defined:

  • \naturalnumbers
  • \integers
  • \rationals
  • \reals
  • \complexes

as well as \primes for blackboard bold P.
