Dear Community,

I can't seem to get an answer to this simple question: are greek letters
allowed as variable names in Mathematica? I have tried this with limited
success (v 5.2). It seems that some greek letters are reserved, for example
alpha. I am not sure about that. Any insight is appreciated. Thanks!
