Bold Greek

Postby tdc » Tue Jan 20, 2009 1:05 am

hi there,

I was wondering if there was a special trick (or possibly package) in order to get bold greek letters,

i've tried using
\textbf{\omega}
but that doesn't seem to work...

any thoughts?

cheers, Tim

Since greek letters are mathematical symbols, your approach can't work. Try it with the help of amsmath.
$\boldsymbol{\omega}$

In this way you can get whole expressions bold faced.
