 I'm afraid that this is not in general possible---unless you want to 
 write the source code yourself and contribute it to LyX, which of course 
 would be welcome. That is to say: Every package that LyX natively 
 supports, it supports only because someone wrote the code that makes LyX 
 support it. To get the various particle names to display properly, for 
 example, the names have to be added to the unicodesymbols file, together 
 with code points in various fonts, etc. So it's not a trivial matter at all.

I 'm afraid that i can't write the source code for this... But then
could you please find me any way to use slashed characters? That is any
character(mainly letters) with a / on it. Thanks for the reply.

 You can use them as you wish, by entering whatever the raw LaTeX is. In 
 math mode, you just type it; in non-math mode, you can enter the 
 characters in ERT. You can do this with any LaTeX stuff that LyX does 
 not support.

sorry for insisting but i tried searching with google how to enter these
characters and i came accross hep package again..i don't
understand..what is ERT?what exactly do i have to type in math mode in
order to get the slashed characters??

I 'm afraid that i can't write the source code for this... But then
could you please find me any way to use slashed characters? That is any
