[R] mathematical expressions in main

I've tried and tried and I presume it is very simple but .....

I want some varying titles for plots using greek symbols
eg using an expression like

for (true in c(0:5))
   plot(...,main = expression(paste(phi," = ",true,sigma)),...)

where phi and sigma are greek symbols.  Instead of \phi=2\sigma I get
\phi=true\sigma as true is taken as a text string - not a variable.

Any help much appreciated
