Greek letters

    Are there any plans for compiling WxMaxima for windows with unicode support to enable the use of greek letters (with subscripts) in equations?


    For example the input %alpha_p gives "%alpha_p" as output and dosen't give the alpha letter with subscript p or just "a_p" (as when using any other but letters) ??

    can this be done ?

    You can use %alpha[p] to get the subscript. Make sure p is not assigned a value.

    Thank you for your reply ! - maybe I don't get it right - if I input

    (%i04) %alphap;

    I just get

    (%o4) %alphap

    • not alpha (subscript p)

    Anything wrong ?

    Anyway - Maxima and wxMaxima is a great software - I use it almost everyday.

    I have made a alpha sub p like this.
    I think this is really making a vector of alphas indexed at p, but it works.

    Oh. I see what is going on. ProfBrady said the same thing but the forum ate his square brackets []. I had to edit my post to get them to show correctly.

      "I think this is really making a vector of alphas indexed at p, but it works."

      Thats exactly what I mean - It could be nice to (actually in general) to be able to make subscripts without making a vector - in order to allow all the normal mathematical operations on the subscripted variable....

    Unfortunately Greek letters are not displayed on wxMaxima 12.4.0
    (under Windows xp).

    How can Greek letters be displayed?

    Thanks in advance
