What is used to execute latex on this website? When I type that into TeXnic center and compile it without MikTex, it is not bold on my computer.

Use \mathbf in math mode.

\mu versus \mathbf\mu [tex]\mu\;\mathbf\mu[/tex]

One drawback of mathbf: Its not in italics.

a versus \mathbf a [tex]a\;\mathbf a[/tex]

If you have the AMS math package (\usepackage{amssymb,amsmath}), \boldsymbol puts things in bold italics.

\mu versus \mathbf\mu versus \boldsymbol\mu [tex]\mu\;\mathbf\mu\;\boldsymbol\mu[/tex]

a versus \mathbf a versus \boldsymbol a [tex]a\;\mathbf a\;\boldsymbol a[/tex]

\mu versus \mathbf\mu [tex]\mu\;\mathbf\mu[/tex]

Whilst that seems to work on the forum, it doesn't work for me (or, it seems, for the OP) hence why I had to find a workaround. The method you list below works fine!Use \mathbf in math mode.

\mu versus \mathbf\mu [tex]\mu\;\mathbf\mu[/tex]
