 I would like to include some math symbols in the title of my deck. I have tried many combinations, such as: title : "$\alpha$" title : "$$\alpha$$" title : "$\\alpha$"  ...etc., but I can't seem to get it to work. I also checked up on this issue, but this seems to be different (and everything is contained on a single line). Is it possible to include math in a deck title? What about super/subscripts?

 Unfortunately it is not possible, unless you turn off the automatic title slide (seal = FALSE) and write your own title slide, e.g. --- title: "Presentation Ninja" author: "Yihui Xie" date: "2016/12/12" output: xaringan::moon_reader: seal: false --- class: center, middle, inverse, title-slide # Presentation Ninja $\alpha$ ### Author ### 2016/12/12 --- # Your first slide
