Writing with LateX
Practical experiences of a student
Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin
Almost all publications in mathematics and other natural sciences are originally created using LaTeX. This format has many advantages, especially concerning the retrieval of information. Moreover, given a LaTeX-document, it is possible to generate almost every customary format, for instance, one can easily obtain the corresponding dvi-, ps-, or pdf-file. In contrast to its importance, however, the LaTeX-format has been widely neglected in many library projects. The question concerning us in this presentation is: What does a LaTeX-coded publication look like? We will focus our attention on LaTeX as format discussing a specific example, namely a PhD thesis. Furthermore, the talk includes a short introduction to the handling of LaTeX-sources and the role of LaTeX in the natural sciences.
