I have started an inquiry about cyrillic in math on the list rustex-l. Here is one answer.

Well, I have read numerous papers written in Russian :) and: Yes, Cyrillic letters are _occasionally_ used for subscripts. This seems to be more common with physics and economics papers than with pure math papers. I don't recall _ever_ seeing Cyrillic letters used for variables, unless they happen to look like Greek letters. One person I know always write \Gamma for group (gruppa) and \Pi for semigroup (polugruppa). While I don't recall seeing Cyrillic variables, it's not unusual to have a whole Russian word as a subscript, in which case it's set in regular upright font: L + L = .... solnce luna The words s. and l. would be set in the same text font as the text outside the formula. --- dlv@bwalk.dm.com (Dimitri Vulis) Brighton Beach Boardwalk BBS, Forest Hills, N.Y.: +1-718-261-2013, 14.4Kbps
