The following commands worked for me.

\documentclass{article}

\begin{document}

This is a test document. $\alpha + \omega = k^{2}$

\section{This is a section}

\subsection{This is a subsection}

\subsubsection{This is a sub sub section}

\end{document}

Please see section 2.2.3 (page 21) of the book: Leslie Lamport, "LaTeX,"
Pearson Education, 1994 (Third Indian Reprint 2002).
