Hello,

I would like to create a matrix with one of the columns named

$\delta$. I have also created columns $\beta_1$ , $\beta_2$, etc.

However, it seems like \d is an escape sequence which gets

automatically removed. (Using these names such that they work right in

xtable -> latex)

colnames(simpleReg.mat) <- c("$\beta_1$","$SE(\beta_1)$", "$\beta_2$",

"$SE(\beta_2)$", "$\delta$", "$SE(\\delta)$")

Warning messages:

1: '\d' is an unrecognized escape in a character string

2: unrecognized escape removed from "$\delta$"

Is there a way to get R to not remove the unrecognized escape?

Thanks,

-stephen
