  Using a macro (here .IR, as used in the already supplied file #43503) is the best solution.

  eqn:<standard input>:122: unquoted escape

\~ in eqn input produces this warning.  It's not clear to me that we get much benefit from using eqn in this page just for this one somewhat malformed chunk of input (it also arguably ought to be using "times" rather than "\[mu]" if it's going to be using eqn anyway).  How about something like this?  Or is there a better approach?
