# How can I insert latex symbols into a matlab plot?

I have a figure in Matlab with axes that I would like to label with latex symbols like $\delta$ on the x axis and $\epsilon$ on the y axis. How can I place these LaTeX notations into the axis labels?

## 1 Answer

when plotting in Matlab, set the text interpreter to be latex:

Figure1=figure(1);clf;
set(Figure1,'defaulttextinterpreter','latex');
plot(...);
xlabel('$\delta$');
ylabel('$\epsilon$');
