When it comes to graphics in my publications and presentations, I have incredibly high standards. I do most of my documents and slides in LaTeX. So when I create plots, I demand that plotting software that has sophisticated integration with LaTeX and the ability to create stunning and clean visuals. For me, that software is without a doubt GNUPLOT . GNUPLOT has a range of terminals that work with LaTeX, including a LaTeX terminal. If you’re using system fonts and XeLaTeX, then the pdf terminal can do a very nice job, but if you’re using fonts in your document that are installed with LaTeX, then only one terminal can suit my standards: the TikZ terminal .
Installing the Beamer class You will first need to install the package Beamer . Under Debian or Ubuntu, you can type the following command:

Welcome to Dia's new homepage. Dia is a GTK+ based diagram creation program for GNU/Linux, MacOS X, Unix, and Windows, and is released under the GPL license. Dia is roughly inspired by the commercial Windows program 'Visio,' though more geared towards informal diagrams for casual use. It can be used to draw many different kinds of diagrams. It currently has special objects to help draw entity relationship diagrams, UML diagrams, flowcharts, network diagrams, and many other diagrams.
Temporarily disabled the OSX download. (There have been problems I have to fix first.) News: Uploaded version 0.2.2.
Typographical Details The book is written in Plain TeX in order to maximize control over the output. The fonts are from the Lucida Bright family, the same fonts that are used in the A.M.S. Notices.
Ever seen those sweet research papers with that awesome font? That’s LaTeX. If you are a die-hard LaTeX fan you can pretty much stop reading this post right now. For the rest of us, Microsoft Word 2007 is often a practical alternative when pressed for time.
by Tom Schneider Can your word processor do these? Examples from The TeX showcase LaTeX is a typesetting language that runs circles around standard word processing programs because ... it is a true language. This means you can define new commands and do rather complex things. It is not really any harder to use than standard word processing programs such as word Y or word IM perfect but it beats them hands down.
LaTeX is a system of typesetting mathematical notation. You enter LaTeX markup language in a plain text file, and then typeset it using the program pdflatex . You can do this by hand (invoking pdflatex from a command line) but all three major platforms have GUI LaTeX editors available that will do syntax coloring on your LaTeX document and also invoke the typesetter for you. We highly recommend that you get a GUI editor; it will make your life less painful.
J. Hrabe Magalien, LLC Unlike NSF, the NIH does not seem to expect that grant applications (RO1, RO3, R21, ...) could be written in LaTeX. However, it appears possible to do so, fulfilling all NIH requirements and avoiding the horrors of MS Word or annoyances of OpenOffice.
This is a guide to the LaTeX markup language. It is intended to form a useful resource for everybody from new users who wish to learn, to old hands who need a quick reference. TeX and LaTeX TeX is a computer program for typesetting documents, created by D. E. Knuth.
T his section is devoted to a template bundle which I developed for the typesetting system LaTeX . The first version of the template was released in early 2006. From the feedback and postcards I received so far, it seems to be in heavy use all over the world! Note: This software is released under the GNU General Public License . The LyX port of classicthesis is maintained by Nick Mariette and Ivo Pletikosić. Thanks, Nick and Ivo!
Here is a LyX port of “A Classic Thesis Style” by André Miede . This high quality thesis style for LaTeX was inspired by Robert Bringhurst’s “The Elements of Typographic Style”. For the most recent versions of the Classic Thesis template, please see the Google Code page where the project currently resides: http://code.google.com/p/classicthesis/ History: The port was made by myself in March, 2009, using LyX version 1.6.2 with MacTEX-2008 , on Mac OS X 10.4.11. I had first adapted the classicthesis.sty to my own needs for typesetting my PhD thesis using LyX.
What is this? Anyone who works with LaTeX knows how time-consuming it can be to find a symbol in symbols-a4.pdf that you just can't memorize. Detexify is an attempt to simplify this search.
