Does \widetilde{\phi} work for you? If you enter this in http://www.codecogs.com/latex/eqneditor.php, it produces a nice Phi with Tilde.

If you just need a few words, then a simple approach can solve your problem: \documentclass{article} \usepackage[LGR,T1]{fontenc} \newcommand{\textgreek}[1]{\begingroup\fontencoding{LGR}\selectfont#1\endgroup} \begin{document} physics (from ancient greek \textgreek{f'usis}) \end{document} For longer passages, perhaps loading the polutoniko option with ...

Found the answer here: It turns out, it's not an epsilon, but a curved letter "E". To enter it in LaTeX, simply do \mathcal{E}.

I’ll throw this in here, as my search for a solution led me here, but my problem was another one. Using XeTeX and Latin Modern, I found that the greek letter μ does not work. However, the Unicode micro sign μ does work. Knowing that, I added \sisetup{math-micro=\text{µ},text-micro=µ}, and now all seems well. To clarify, use µ MICRO SIGN Unicode: U+00B5, ...

If you're using LuaLaTeX or XeLaTeX, you can use the unicode-math package. It defines all uppercase Greek letters: \documentclass{article} \usepackage{unicode-math} \begin{document} $\Alpha+\Beta=\Gamma$. \end{document} The result is: This way has an advantage in that one can change the style of the letters by altering the unicode-math options. For ...

Fill in the table: \documentclass{article} \newcommand{\greek}[1]{\begingroup\setuplatintogreek#1\endgroup} \newcommand{\setuplatintogreek}{% \mathcode`a=\alpha \mathcode`b=\beta \mathcode`g=\gamma \mathcode`d=\delta \mathcode`e=\varepsilon %... } \begin{document} $abgde+\greek{abgde}$ \end{document}

since many of the greek uppercase letters have the same shape as latin letters, they were not separately provided for tex, for two reasons: to save space (which was a real consideration in 1980); because it wouldn't be possible to tell the difference between the two shapes. the first reason is no longer relevant, of course, but the second is. go ahead and ...

Here, I take Bruno's answer at Shear transform a "box", and use it to unslant the computer-modern greek letters. I introduce \unslant[slant]{math-symbol}, where the default value of unslant correction is set to -0.25. As you can see, the unslanted font is very visually very compatible with the original, both of which are shown. No packages ...

here an example: \documentclass[border=10mm]{standalone} \begin{document} \begin{equation} \nabla (fg)= f\nabla g + g \nabla f \end{equation} \end{document} it yields: if this does not work there must e something wrong with your TeX installation.

For such concerns, have a look at Detexify², which will try to recognice a symbol you drew: As you can see, it totally agrees with Mico. You can also have a look at the following question: How to look up a symbol? It deals with the common problem of finding the code for a certain symbol.

As @Seamus correctly points out, capital Rho has the same glyph as capital P. You can put \newcommand{\Rho}{\mathrm{P}} into your preamble to make the macro \Rho avialable. The usage of \mathrm is necessary if you use default math alphabets, because all greek capitals are typeset in up-right font. List of those Greek letters whose capital variants coincide ...

Computer Modern's greek (bottom) font is (loosely) based on Monotype's 155M Greek font (top): The Monotype 155M font itself is related to the Porson greek font, which was one of the most used typeface for greek in english speaking countries. One of the characteristic of this font is that it has upright capitals but slanted lowercase. This might seem ...

You can use \reflectbox from graphicx and also \text from amsmath to get the symbol to scale in sub/superscripts \documentclass{article} \usepackage{amsmath,graphicx} \usepackage{unicode-math} \setmathfont{Lucida Bright Math OT} \DeclareRobustCommand{\ammaG}{\text{\reflectbox{$\Gamma$}}} \begin{document} $\Gamma\ne\ammaG$ $\Gamma=\Gamma$ $\ammaG_{\...

It's not at all difficult, if you have an up-to-date TeX distribution. The text is from http://el.wikipedia.org/wiki/Αθήνα Version for TeX Live 2013 and later % !TEX encoding = UTF-8 Unicode \documentclass{article} \usepackage[utf8]{inputenc} \usepackage[greek]{babel} \begin{document} Η Αθήνα (Ἀθῆναι στα αρχαία ελληνικά και την καθαρεύουσα) είναι η ...

The KOMA scripts set headings in a sans serif font. This means in your example, they will be set in Arial. The version of Arial that you have installed therefore does not have the Greek script, hence the error (although the mention of roman in the error is a bit misleading here.) However, if you want to use Linux Libertine for all Greek text, then you need ...

You don't need the isomath package: \DeclareMathSymbol{\Gamma}{\mathalpha}{operators}{0} \DeclareMathSymbol{\Delta}{\mathalpha}{operators}{1} \DeclareMathSymbol{\Theta}{\mathalpha}{operators}{2} \DeclareMathSymbol{\Lambda}{\mathalpha}{operators}{3} \DeclareMathSymbol{\Xi}{\mathalpha}{operators}{4} \DeclareMathSymbol{\Pi}{\mathalpha}{operators}{5} \...

I think the amount of work needed wouldn't warrant the advantages of using greektex at all. May I ask what exactly you're using it for? If I'm reading this correctly, it's a package which breaks exactly everything LaTeX is doing nowadays in the inputenc/fontenc area. The goal of greektex is to support a set of fonts called ywclr which are, AFAICS, only ...

OT stands for "old text encoding"; I believe it's not necessary at all. \documentclass{book} \usepackage[T1]{fontenc} \usepackage{polski} \usepackage[utf8]{inputenc} \usepackage[french,polutonikogreek,polish]{babel} \begin{document} Litwo, ojczyzno moja ą ę \foreignlanguage{french}{<<Vous vous taisez?>>} coś tam \foreignlanguage{greek}{sig~a|...

LuaLaTeX is your choice! Greek is possible without any adjustments. Hebrew, as it is a language from right to left, needs adjustments. Of course, you need to use \usepackage{fontspec} in the preamble (as is usual when using LuaLatex). Greek You need a font that supports all the accents. If your mainfont for latin text does not support them, you need to ...

The lipsum package uses \roman{lips@count} to build a control sequence name; but the Greek module for babel changes the meaning of \roman making it not fully expandable. Solution: patch the relevant command: \documentclass[a4paper,11pt]{article} \usepackage[english,greek]{babel} \usepackage{kerkis} \usepackage{lipsum} \usepackage{etoolbox} \makeatletter \...

The command \[\mu\] is a short version of \begin{equation*} \mu \end{equation*} which is normally used for longer formulas. If you want to typeset (short) formulas like μ, you should use the inline-math mode, i.e. This is an example text containing the greek letter $\mu$.

You can use the bm-package \documentclass[paper=a4, fontsize=12pt]{article} % A4 paper and 11pt % font size \usepackage[english]{babel} % English language/hyphenation \usepackage{amsmath,amsfonts,amsthm,bm} % Math packages \begin{document} \begin{align*} (\mathbf{n}\cdot \bm{\sigma}) \sigma&=\mathbf{0} \end{align*} \end{document}

Does not bm just do what you want without any further redefinitions? \documentclass{article} \usepackage{bm,upgreek} \begin{document} \begin{equation} \psi, \uppsi, \Psi,\bm{\psi},\bm{\uppsi},\bm{\Psi} \end{equation} \end{document}

You have to assign a meaning to the Unicode characters you're using and that aren't set by default. Here's a way. \begin{filecontents*}{\jobname.bib} @article{concellon_synthesis_2006, title = {Synthesis of Enantiopure ({αS,βS)-} or ({αR,βS)-β-Amino} Alcohols by Complete Regioselective Opening of Aminoepoxides by Organolithium Reagents {LiAlH4} or {...

Load babel for polytonic Greek. Depending on your preferences, you can use the transliteration or direct input. \documentclass{article} \usepackage[utf8]{inputenc} \usepackage[greek.polutoniko,english]{babel} \begin{document} \textgreek{<amart'ia} \textgreek{ἁμαρτία} \end{document}

You could load any font which supports these letters with help of the package fontspec (which requires Lua- or XeLaTeX): % arara: lualatex \documentclass{article} \usepackage{fontspec} \begin{document} \setmainfont{EB Garamond} ἁμαρτία \setmainfont{Linux Libertine O} ἁμαρτία \end{document} If you do not want to type the letters (or ...
