LaTeX Seminar

LaTeX is a document preparation system that produces professionally typeset output. It is used by all mathematics journals and most physics and engineering journals. The instructor has written formatting files that will produce Masters theses and PhD dissertations. The LaTeX seminar will meet on Wednesdays starting on July 10, 2013. Participants may attend from 10:20 AM to 12:10 PM or from 3:00 PM to 4:50 PM. The content of these two meetings will be identical. All of those interested in learning how to use LaTeX or wishing to increase their knowledge of LaTeX are invited to attend, students and staff alike. Undergraduate students may (but are not required to) enroll in MTH 490 section 203 for one credit. Undergraduate enrollees must prepare a LaTeX document of at least 5 pages and have it critiqued by the instructor to get credit. Graduate students wishing to get one credit should send an email message to Leslie Aitcheson (aitches3@math.msu.edu) containing their PID and requesting an override to enroll in MTH 890 section 204. Graduate enrollees must prepare a LaTeX document of at least 10 pages and have it critiqued by the instructor to get credit. No previous knowledge of LaTeX will be assumed, but each topic will be covered in enough detail to permit the users to use LaTeX in a very effective manner. Even those who have been using LaTeX for some time will learn something new from each lesson which will bring their LaTeX skills up to date. All participants will be able to download handouts for each meeting in advance, which may be printed and used for taking notes. In addition, detailed class notes will also be available for download, which can be used for later reference.
