A LaTeX package to provide italic uppercase Greek

  alphabet \mathbold; to be used with the default CM math

The style files can be unpacked by running the particular
installation script (.ins) through LaTeX.  The files will 
be created immediately in the appropriate TDS directory
tex/latex/was, if this directory exists and the DOCSTRIP
tool is properly configured -- otherwise they are written
into the current directory.

fixmath – Make maths comply with ISO 31-0:1992 to ISO 31-13:1992

’s default style of typesetting mathematics does not comply with the International Standards ISO 31-0:1992 to ISO 31-13:1992 which require that uppercase Greek letters always be typset upright, as opposed to italic (even though they usually represent variables) and allow for typsetting of variables in a boldface italic style (even though the required fonts are available). This package ensures that uppercase Greek be typeset in italic style, that upright $\Delta$ and $\Omega$ symbols are available through the commands \upDelta and \upOmega; and provides a new math alphabet \mathbold for boldface italic letters, including Greek.

This package used to be part of the was bundle, but has now become a package in its own right.
