The trick is not to paste expressions but to make an expression of the
pastes:
composite.expression <- expression(paste("f(x | ", alpha, ", ", beta, " )"))
dev.off()
par(mar=c(5,5,1,1)+0.1)
plot(NA,xlim=c(0,1),
ylim=c(0,3),xlab="x",ylab=composite.expression,lwd=3,type="l",cex.lab=1.3)

Subject: [R] Display Conditional Probabilities on y-label
Hello,
I am trying to display a conditional probability for the y-label on a beta
distribution plot. Here is the code I have been using:
z = expression("f(x|")
g = paste(z,expression(alpha),",",expression(beta),")")
plot(x,y,ylim=c(0,3),xlab="x",ylab=g,lwd=3,type="l",cex.lab=1.3)
The output on the plot is as follows:
f(x|alpha,beta)
This is what I want except have the greek letters for alpha and beta
instead of the words. I have consulted plotmath and other options with no
luck. I appreciate any help and thank you ahead of time.
best,
Brian
