Hello all. 
  I would like to redefine the capital Greek letters so that they can be  used without worrying about putting $ around them in in-line text. I  was able to do this fine for all letters except for \Lambda and \Sigma  (uppercase). The following is the code I used in the preamble of my  document. 
  \renewcommand{\Lambda}{\ensuremath \Lambda\xspace}
  What happens is that my LaTeX hits waht appears to be an infinite loop  and then runs out of memory and then shuts down. Any thoughts on why  \Lambda and \Sigma are the only ones (upper or lower case) that are giving me such trouble?
