Can this be done? I can't find anything anywhere on this -- which is very strange to me!

  • Is there some particular issue with getting this to work in the title specifically? Please post a Minimal (non-)Working Example if Werner's link doesn't answer your question. – cfr Mar 24 '14 at 21:54

    since the distinction between lightface and bold often has a meaning distinction in math, at least some math publishers reject the use of bold math in a title if it isn't also bold in the text. – barbara beeton Mar 24 '14 at 22:00
  • Please, seperate questions and answers. It would be best if you (1) specified what style file you use (including MWE) and then (2) posted the whole addendum as an answer to the question. – yo' Mar 25 '14 at 17:16

enter image description here


\title{$e=mc^2$ in bold}




$e=mc^2 $


The problem was that I was using a particular .sty file: imsart. After the modification, it works well for me now, so thank you everyone for the hints. I have replaced

\setattribute{title}      {size} {\LARGE\bfseries}

there by

\setattribute{title}      {size} {\LARGE\bfseries\boldmath}

and it works now.
