- LaTeX in 24 Hours by Dilip Datta This book presents direct and concise explanations and examples to many LaTeX syntax and structures, allowing students and researchers to quickly understand the basics that are required for writing and preparing book manuscripts, journal articles, reports, presentation slides and academic theses and dissertations for publication. Unlike much of the literature currently available on LaTeX, which takes a more technical stance, focusing on the details of the software itself, this book presents a user-focused guide that is concerned with its application to everyday tasks and scenarios. It is packed with exercises and looks at topics like formatting text, drawing and inserting tables and figures, bibliographies and indexes, equations, slides, and provides valuable explanations to error and warning messages so you can get work done with the least time and effort needed. This means LaTeX in 24 Hours can be used by students and researchers with little or no previous experience with LaTeX to gain quick and noticeable results, as well as being used as a quick reference guide for those more experienced who want to refresh their knowledge on the subject.ISBN: 9783319478302Publication Date: 2017-07-07
- Practical LaTeX by George Grätzer Practical LaTeX covers the material that is needed for everyday LaTeX documents. This accessible manual is friendly, easy to read, and is designed to be as portable as LaTeX itself. A short chapter, Mission Impossible, introduces LaTeX documents and presentations. Read these 30 pages; you then should be able to compose your own work in LaTeX.nbsp; The remainder of the book delves deeper into the topics outlined in Mission Impossible while avoiding technical subjects. Chapters on presentations and illustrations are a highlight, as is the introduction of LaTeXnbsp; on an iPad. Students, faculty, and professionals in the worlds of mathematics and technology will benefit greatly from this new, practical introduction to LaTeX. George Grätzer, author of More Math into LaTeXnbsp; (now in its 4th edition) and First Steps in LaTeX, has been a LaTeXnbsp; guru for over a quarter of century. From the reviews of More Math into LaTeX: ``There are several LaTeXnbsp; guides, but this one wins hands down for the elegance of its approach and breadth of coverage.'' --Amazon.com, Best of 2000, Editors Choice ``A very helpful and useful tool for all scientists and engineers.'' --Review of Astronomical Tools ``A novice reader will be able to learn the most essential features of LaTeX sufficient to begin typesetting papers within a few hours of time...An experienced TeX user, on the other hand, will find a systematic and detailed discussion of all LaTeX features, supporting software, and many other advanced technical issues.'' --Reports on Mathematical PhysicsISBN: 9783319064246Publication Date: 2014-09-01
- LaTeX and Friends by M. R. C. van Dongen LaTeX is a free, automated state-of-the-art typesetting system. This book teaches all the ins and outs of LaTeX which are needed to write an article, report, thesis, or book. The book teaches by example, giving many worked out examples showing input and output side by side. The book presents the most recent techniques for presenting data plots, complex graphics, and computer presentations, but does not require previous knowledge. However, it is also a reference for the more seasoned user, with pointers to modern techniques and packages. Recurring themes in the book are consistent and effective presentation, planning and development, controlling style and content, and maintenance.ISBN: 9783642238154Publication Date: 2012-01-29
