    Hi Peter,

    Capital Tau is just a T.
    Mathjax doesn't have a caligraphic Tau, but the caligraphic T is the same thing: $\mathcal{T(S)}$.
    Alternatively we can consider mathscr T: $\mathscr{T(S)}$.

    I think that the T in your text is just a caligraphic T. It is just rendered slightly differently.
    Note that a lowercase tau actually has its bottom curve in the opposite direction

    although this is hardly visible in the mathjax version ($\tau$).

    Try mathcal{T}, which gives $\displaystyle \mathcal{T}$.
