 Feb 16 awarded Popular Question Feb 14 awarded Yearling Feb 14 comment How can I replace the Greek symbols in an expression with their plain text names? Ok. Good to know. Thanks! Feb 14 accepted How can I replace the Greek symbols in an expression with their plain text names? Feb 14 comment How can I replace the Greek symbols in an expression with their plain text names? You're right. It's a font thing (just on my end?). When I copy-past the last code block into Mathematica, everything is correct. However, in this post, they appear switched (for me). Feb 14 comment How can I replace the Greek symbols in an expression with their plain text names? Slick! Thanks! Also, btw, it seems like phi and curlyphi got switched. I can't tell why.

Dec 5 awarded Autobiographer Feb 21 comment Manipulate and Turning Expressions into Functions So, to be sure I understand, \[FormalA] can never be assigned a value and so it works. \[Alpha] and the like, however, are not write protected in the same way that a and b are not protected, but still works. What is different, then, about \[Alpha] and \[Beta] that makes this work? Are they something in between regular a and \[FormalA]? Feb 21 comment Manipulate and Turning Expressions into Functions Very elegant. Thanks! Feb 21 accepted Manipulate and Turning Expressions into Functions Feb 21 comment Manipulate and Turning Expressions into Functions Thanks for the answer. The problem that I am running into, however, is that I have an expression that I would like to plot saved somewhere that is not already a function proper. So, for example, I have the following, both of which do not work. Clear["`*"] someExpression = Sin[a x + b]; func[x_, a_, b_] := someExpression Manipulate[Plot[func[x, a, b], {x, 0, 6}], {a, 1, 4}, {b, 0, 10}] Clear[func] func[x_, a_, b_] := Function[{x, a, b}, someExpression][x, a, b] Manipulate[Plot[func[x, a, b], {x, 0, 6}], {a, 1, 4}, {b, 0, 10}] Feb 21 awarded Editor Feb 21 comment Manipulate and Turning Expressions into Functions Thanks for the catch.
