I need to use gamma as a "free" symbol in pde that I pass to pdsolve, so that the latex comes out as \gamma OK in the solution.
in other words, the pde itself uses the symbol gamma (as it is written in the textbook and I want to keep it the same). This gamma is not the known constant gamma. Something similar to using alpha and beta or x and y.
But gamma in a known constant in Maple and I am worried this will affect some computation inside pdsolve if I use gamma as known number in the PDE (even though I think it should not change the result of pdsolve as there are no other numbers in the PDE input, I just wanted to be safe).
I am not able to clear gamma
unassign(gamma) gives error since it is protected.
Is there a way around this? Should I use wrap the name with 'gamma' or `gamma` for example?
Here is an example
pde := a*diff(w(x,y,z),x)+ b*diff(w(x,y,z),y)+c*diff(w(x,y,z),z)= alpha*x+beta*y+gamma*z+delta;
It is the gamma above I am worried about using in the input. What is the correct way to do this?
