In my field, for example, the publication habits (read: the journal 
requirements) are, regarding maths:

- constants (like pi, i, e and gamma, the differential operator d): 

- variables: italics

- vectors: bold (upright for constant vector, italicized for variable 

- matrices and tensors: sans serif (upright if constant, italicized if 


So you see that, alas (given the Euler fonts really look nice), they
