???

You are "just" defining a new LaTeX command ... nothing will be printed
in LaTeX.

Instead of using \put, you can specify coordinates as usual in R using
text(), title() or mtext().

Instead of "\sigma_{A , #3} = #4", you can use

substitute(sigma[v3] == v4, list(v3 = paste("A,",v3), v4 = v4))

which leads to, e.g.

plot(1:10)

v3 <- 99

v4 <- 55

text(4, 1, label = substitute(sigma[v3] == v4,

list(v3 = paste("A,",v3), v4 = v4)))

See also ?plotmath and the R Help Desk Column in R News 2 (3).
