Typing Greek Symbols in Maple

• 

To enter Greek symbols into in your Maple document, use the Greek palette. This works in both Text mode and Math mode.

  

For details on palettes in Maple, see worksheet/expressions/palettes.

• 

In math mode, you can also enter Greek symbols using Command and Symbol Completion.  See worksheet/expressions/completecommand for more information.

Using the SYMBOL Font in Plot Commands

• 

To use Greek letters in a plot command, for instance to label the axes, set the appropriate font option to SYMBOL.  Then, when you enter a letter, the corresponding Greek letter is used.  For example, enter "r" for "rho", and ρ is displayed.

  

The following is a list of corresponding Greek symbols.

In this example, we set the label font for the plot to SYMBOL and label the axes ρ and Ψρ.

plot(sin(r), r=0..3, labels=["r", "Y(r)"], labelfont=[SYMBOL]);

• 

You can also use typeset math in a plot command to enter 2-D math, including Greek symbols, anywhere in a plot where text is allowed.  See plot/typesetting for details.
