subscript without latex

Hello, how I can write a simple formula like this: $\alpha_0$ without
latex using unicode? My problem is how to write sub(super)script.
Thanks.

You have a choice of the built-in math layout engine (mathtext) and using the real LaTeX for this. The rcParam "text.usetex", when True, will use LaTeX.

I'm not sure I fully understand the question, though. To get the Greek alpha character, Unicode will be used in the output. You've demonstrated that you don't have to use Unicode in the input, however, as you can say "$\alpha_0$". What is it you're trying to avoid?
