The use of Greek letters to represent mathematical concepts dates back to ancient Greece, where the Greeks used the letters of their alphabet as symbols in their mathematical notation. Out of numerous letters, one of them is used to denote the partial symbol. It looks like a stylized letter “d” with a vertical line passing through it (∂).

History of the Partial Symbol
The use of the partiality symbol was first seen in the early 19th century. It was introduced along with the concept of “partial derivative” by two mathematicians AugustinLouis Cauchy and George Boole. The most commonly used partial symbol is the lowercase Greek letter “delta” (δ), which is used to represent a partial derivative concerning a specific variable.
The symbol initially became a part of mathematics and physics in 1770 and was introduced by Nicolas de Condorcet. The symbol is often mistaken as a lowercase Greek letter “delta” which typically represents an ordinary derivative. However, a vertical stroke through it suggests that the derivative is partial rather than total.
