Hi I'm trying to make a simple function using subscripts and greek symbols instead of typing the English equivalent. Here is one function using Greek symbols and subscripts. It doesn't work. I've also pasted the corresponding cell expression below. \!\(\(x\_2[\(?\_1\) _] := 2\ ?\_1;\)\) Cell[BoxData[ RowBox[{ RowBox[{ RowBox[{ SubscriptBox["x", "2"], "[", RowBox[{ SubscriptBox["\[Theta]", "1"], "_"}], "]"}], ":=", RowBox[{"2", " ", SubscriptBox["\[Theta]", "1"]}]}], ";"}]], "Input"] Here is a similar function that works. It avoids using the symbols and subscripts. x3[theta1_] := 3 theta1; Cell[BoxData[ RowBox[{ RowBox[{ RowBox[{"x3", "[", "theta1_", "]"}], ":=", RowBox[{"3", " ", "theta1"}]}], ";"}]], "Input"]
