Overview The natbib package is a reimplementation of the LATEX \cite command, to work with both author-year and numerical citations. It is compatible with the standard bibliographic style files, such as plain.bst, as well as with those for harvard, apalike, chicago, astron, authordate. Loading. Apa.cls. Contents Introduction apa.cls is a document class for typesetting manuscripts with LaTeX according to the rules of the 5th edition (2001) of the Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association.


It simplifies writing of the manuscript, taking care of appearance and leaving only the content to the author (in true LaTeX fashion) and it also allows both for manuscript look and journal look with a simple option to the class-loading command. Endfloat.pdf (application/pdf Object) Apacite.pdf (application/pdf Object) More TeX Resources. This page shows: It's not hard to draw reasonably nice graphs in TeX, without recourse to \special's, postscript or pdf inclusions. An advantage to doing so is that your dvi file won't need to be accompanied by additional files, and won't need anything beyond a dvi reader to be viewable and printable.

Sometimes, as with proposals submitted to NSF via FastLane, this can make a big difference. (FastLane claims to accept such multiple file submissions, but often times out while processing them, making them de facto unacceptable. PAGSA - LaTex. Subcaption.pdf (application/pdf Object) LaTeX:Math. From AoPSWiki This article will detail how to work with math mode in LaTeX and how to display equations, formulas, and mathematical expressions in general.


Math Mode LaTeX uses a special math mode to display mathematics. To place something written in TeX in math mode, use $ signs to enclose the math you want to display. For example, open a new source file in TeXnicCenter and type or copy/paste the following: \documentclass{article} \begin{document} The solution to $\sqrt{x} = 5$ is $x=25$. Save the document (press Ctrl-S or click File, then Save) as 'mymath' (don't include the quote marks in the name) in a folder of your choice. Compile the document just as you compiled your first document. If you remove the $ symbols from your source file then try to compile, you should get 'Missing $ inserted' error messages in the Output window of TeXnicCenter (try it and see - you may have to scroll up in the Output window to see the errors).

Lesson 5:Typesetting Math in LaTeX. Let's take a look at how to handle some typical problems in using LaTeX to typeset mathematics.

Lesson 5:Typesetting Math in LaTeX

We have already looked at various math environments. Fractions In order to get fractions in-line, you have a choice of using the solidus to get a fraction like 1/2, or of using the math mode command \frac{a}{b}, which will give a small fraction with numerator a and denominator b for in-line formulas. Using the "displayed fraction" command \dfrac{a}{b} gives an upright fraction, and makes the line a little larger vertically to provide sufficient vertical space for the displayed fraction. In a displaymath environment or equation environment it is not necessary to use the \dfrac command; the command \frac{a}{b} will give an upright fraction, and the resulting line will also take extra vertical space.

Warning: note that the fraction command has two arguments, each enclosed in curly braces. Integrals Expanding Delimiters. LaTeX:Commands. From AoPSWiki This page introduces various useful commands for rendering math in LaTeX, as well as instructions for building your own commands.


Math Commands Here are some commonly used math commands in LaTeX. Exponents and Subscripts. Bold and Italic font in LaTeX « Symbols in LaTeX and HTML — Steve Sque, University of Exeter. Ltxcrib.pdf (application/pdf Object) Fields. Next: Helpful HintsUp: The Entries Previous: Entry Types Below is a description of all fields recognized by the standard bibliography styles.


An entry can also contain other fields, which are ignored by those styles. address Usually the address of the publisher or other type of institution. For major publishing houses, van Leunen recommends omitting the information entirely. Annote An annotation.

Next: FieldsUp: The Entries Previous: The Entries When entering a reference in the database, the first thing to decide is what type of entry it is.

Entry Types

No fixed classification scheme can be complete, but BibTeX provides enough entry types to handle almost any reference reasonably well. References to different types of publications contain different information; a reference to a journal article might include the volume and number of the journal, which is usually not meaningful for a book.

Therefore, database entries of different types have different fields. For each entry type, the fields are divided into three classes: required Omitting the field will produce a warning message and, rarely, a badly formatted bibliography entry. Optional The field's information will be used if present, but can be omitted without causing any formatting problems. Getting to Grips with LaTeX - LaTeX Tutorials by Andrew Roberts. Here are some tutorials I have written for getting up to speed with this excellent document processing system.

Getting to Grips with LaTeX - LaTeX Tutorials by Andrew Roberts

Funnily enough I wouldn't consider myself an expert, per se, but I'm learning all the time. I recall finding it quite taxing when I started to learn LaTeX, which is why I have started these tutorials. However, I hope that my experience plays to your advantage because I cover sort of questions and problems I had when I first learning LaTeX which are probably typical for most beginners. Benefits LaTeX pre-dates modern graphical word processors, if not modern graphical operating systems! For a more detailed account, see my article regarding the numerous advantages.

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 Donald Knuth. It takes a suitably prepared computer file and converts it to a form which may be printed on many kinds of printers, including dot-matrix printers, laser printers and high-resolution typesetting machines. LaTeX is a set of macros for TeX that aims at reducing the user's task to the sole role of writing the content, LaTeX taking care of all the formatting process. The book is organized in different parts. LaTeX/Tables - Wikibooks, collection of open-content textbooks. Tables are a common feature in academic writing, often used to summarise research results. Mastering the art of table construction in LaTeX is therefore necessary to produce quality papers and with sufficient practice one can print beautiful tables of any kind.

Keeping in mind that LaTeX is not a spreadsheet, it makes sense to use a dedicated tool to build tables and then to export these tables into the document. Basic tables are not too taxing, but anything more advanced can take a fair bit of construction; in these cases, more advanced packages can be very useful. However, first it is important to know the basics. Once you are comfortable with basic LaTeX tables, you might have a look at more advanced packages or the export options of your favorite spreadsheet. For a long time, LaTeX tables were quite a chaotic topic, with dozens of packages doing similar things, while not always being compatible with one another.
