I need to use subindices with greek letters. But I find that the result is sometimes decipherable.


$\alpha_{H}$, $\gamma_{H}$

Do you have any suggestion in that regard? Of course, I do not want to use another subindex than "H".


try it this way:


$\alpha_H \gamma_H $ $\alpha_{\H} \gamma_{\H} $

    Or just an empty supercript $\alpha^{}_{H}$ often helps – Danie Els May 18 '11 at 7:24
  • @Herbert Could you please explain why that works? Thanks! – qed Feb 13 '13 at 15:16
  • @CravingSpirit: It insert an invisible vertical rule before H which is always of the same height. – user2478 Feb 14 '13 at 7:09
  • @Herbert Oh, I see. It also has something to do with the length of the rule, the longer it is, the lower the "H" will sink. Thanks! – qed Feb 15 '13 at 15:06
