comment Black and white emphasis for \boxed?
I added a MWE. \boxed is from amsmath or mathtools. I used kpfonts as that is what I was using there, so if you compile it your equations will look exactly the same.

comment Why is pdflatex not recognizing my > symbol?
@uli Actually PDFTeX will try and guess when you are in math mode, but it is really bad at it an will screw up when it does. As someone who forgets ( too often I've seen that error a few times >.>

@FUZxxl Ah, I was referring to the average usage case, not the theoretical number of documents.

comment Document requiring infinitely many compiler passes?
@FUZxxl Well no, there should be a class of TeX documents that you can't prove it for. Most ones you could follow the algorithm through and see if it will end, much like most C programs. It is just POSSIBLE to answer a question you can't predict.

Now someone should put this into latexmk and watch it run forever.

comment Define particle names to use upright greek letters in math mode
But if I use your solutions I have to stop using Latin Modern in the rest of my document, correct?

@FUZxxl All we have to do is describe a simple system as a state machine and show that it will move between these two states forever.

comment Document requiring infinitely many compiler passes?
@FUZxxl That isn't true: That just states that there exists a class of problems exists for which you cannot prove if they will halt or not. Not all problems belong to that class. For example, you can mathematically prove that while(n>0){n++;} will go forever, and that n=10;while(n<10){n--}; will halt.

@egreg Can you also expand that into an answer on how I would use those fonts with the upright characters?

@egreg What about Latin Modern? Doesn't it support pretty much every European alphabet?

Ok, that works, but since it loads them from another font face they are ugly as sin compared to the surrounding text.

I was just about to ask about this: Which is better/what is the difference?
