If you use LaTeX you could try the tikzDevice package (
https://r-forge.r-project.org/projects/tikzdevice/ ).  In that case you
would use:

main = paste('\\mu =',mu,', \\lambda =',lambda,', truncation =',truncation,
', N_T =',n)

a full example is:

boxplot(rnorm(100), main = paste('\\mu =',mu,', \\lambda =',lambda,',
truncation =',truncation, ', N_T =',n))

And in a tex file:


and the symbols would get typeset by latex.

serving but we just released a beta version and are trying to get the word
