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.

In a LaTEX program you write the content of your document, you use commands to provide markup and automate tasks, and you import libraries. The following explains this in further detail. content The content of your document is determined in terms of text and logical markup. LaTEX forces you to focus on the logical

Many thanks to Mr Engesser, Ms Glaunsinger, and Ms Fisher at Springer for providing the opportunity to publish this book and for helping me bring this project to a successful end.

how to: ◦ Write a simple LaTEX input document based on the article class. ◦ Turn the input document into pdf with the pdflatex program. ◦ Define labels and use them to create consistent cross-references to chapters and sections. This basic cross-referencing mechanism also works for tables, figures, and so on. ◦ Create a fault-free table of contents with the \tableofcontents command. Creating a list of tables and a list of figures works in a similar way. ◦ Cite the literature with the aid of the
