# Natbib reference sheet

Reference sheet for natbib usage(Describing version 7.0b from 2002/02/27) For a more detailed description of the natbib package, LATEX the source file natbib.dtx. 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 Load with \usepackage[options]{natbib}. Replacement bibliography styles I provide three new .bst files to replace the standard LATEX numerical ones: plainnat.bst abbrvnat.bst unsrtnat.bst Basic commands The natbib package has two basic citation commands, \citet and \citep for textual and parenthetical citations, respectively. Multiple citations Multiple citations may be made by including more than one citation key in the \cite command argument. Numerical mode These examples are for author-year citation mode. Suppressed parentheses Partial citations Related:  LaTeX

xetex - I am new to TeX. Should I use LaTeX, XeLaTeX, ... Bibliography and citation style The default bibliography [\bibliographystyle{plain}] and citation [ \cite ] styles in latex are not used very commonly used nowadays. After doing a small search on the web and reading some documentation I have found some useful packages which help format the bibliography entries and the citations to the authors in the " author( year) " instead of the " [1] " fromat. Note that all the packages I will use are already in the unix servers in the Statistics Dept ( Pennstate). Citation Style In LaTeX, one can use a number of different bibliography styles. This is how the LaTeX-source might look like: Reference to a paper in proceedings [1], to an article [2], and to a book [3]. References Reference to a paper in proceedings [2], to an article [3], and to a book [1]. Reference to a paper in proceedings [FSC93], to an article [LBG80], and to a book [Abu90]. Reference to a paper in proceedings [Fanty et al., 1993], to an article [Linde et al., 1980], and to a book [Abut, 1990]. \begin{document} Usage

LaTeX/Bibliography Management For any academic/research writing, incorporating references into a document is an important task. Fortunately, LaTeX has a variety of features that make dealing with references much simpler, including built-in support for citing references. However, a much more powerful and flexible solution is achieved thanks to an auxiliary tool called BibTeX (which comes bundled as standard with LaTeX). BibTeX provides for the storage of all references in an external, flat-file database. Embedded system If you are writing only one or two documents and aren't planning on writing more on the same subject for a long time, maybe you don't want to waste time creating a database of references you are never going to use. LaTeX provides an environment called thebibliography that you have to use where you want the bibliography; that usually means at the very end of your document, just before the \end{document} command. \begin{thebibliography}{9} \end{thebibliography} OK, so what is going on here? @article

Night Walker: Latex: \headheight is too small You never know what you will meet when you use Latex, luckily, we can search Google or Yahoo to find the answer. However, it cannot help all the times. There is a problem you may come across using package fancyhdr: Package Fancyhdr Warning: \headheight is too small (12.0pt):Make it at least 14.49998pt.We now make it that large for the rest of the document. It was not easy to find the answer via either Google or Yahoo. Here is the solution. \setlength{\headheight}{15pt} in the preamble, i.e. before \begin{document}.Tips: \headheight defines the height of the header.

Computer Science | Video Courses on Academic Earth In its purest form, computer science is the research and development of technology that solves specific problems. Computer science has brought the world smart phones, GPS systems, the gaming industry and tablet computing, along with technological developments that assist government, industry and medicine. In addition to creating new technology, computer scientists also make improvements to existing technology and study the ways computers can make our lives easier. As with any branch of science, computer scientists perform research that establishes new information. This research begins with known mathematical algorithms and computer theory, and strives to constantly redefine what technology can do for us. Exploring fundamental questions about computation is the first step toward designing the hardware, software and complex network systems that we rely upon. Sample Courses During the first two years of a standard 4-year program, students focus on the basics: Possible Specializations Master’s

BibTeX: How to cite a website With the increasing importance of the internet for scientific research, need increases for properly citing online resources. Unfortunately, when the main LaTeX citation machinery BibTeX was created, this was not to be foreseen; this is why there is to date no canonical way to cite, say, a website. Different workarounds have emerged, using for example some trickery with the @MISC type (see below), but the right way™ hasn't been found yet. This could change with the advent of biblatex. Its new entry type @ONLINE is supposed to contain references to web resources and doesn't give room for confusion anymore. and the LaTeX file\documentclass{article} \usepackage{biblatex}\bibliography{test.bib} \title{BibTeX Website citatations with the \textsf{biblatex}~package}\date{} \begin{document} \end{document} one gets a nicely typeset list of references. Note that there are plenty of more options and entry types in the biblatex package, such as (the currently unused) @AUDIO and @VIDEO. \usepackage{url} and

Top four LaTeX mistakes Here are four of the most common typesetting errors I see in books and articles created with LaTeX. 1) Quotes Quotation marks in LaTeX files begin with two back ticks, , and end with two single quotes, ''. The first “Yes” was written as Yes.'' in LaTeX while the one with the backward opening quote was written as "Yes." 2) Differentials Differentials, most commonly the dx at the end of an integer, should have a little space separating them from other elements. The first integral was written as \int_0^1 f(x) \, dx while the second forgot the , and was written as \int_0^1 f(x) dx The need for a little extra space around differentials becomes more obvious in multiple integrals. The first was written as dx , dy = r , dr \, d\theta while the second was written as dx dy = r dr d\theta 3) Multi-letter function names The LaTeX commands for typesetting functions like sin, cos, log, max, etc. begin with a backslash. The first example above was written as \log e^x = x and the second as log e^x = x Related posts:
