Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The LaTeX Book is for the professional or student who needs to quickly learn how to write and typeset using LaTeX or wants to advance their LaTeX knowledge in order to write articles, books or presentations containing mathematical formulas. As a spin-off of Grtzers well-received Math into LaTeX, this book retains the simple, example-based, visual approach, with sample articles to demonstrate the basic structure of LaTeX and AMS articles. This book includes a new chapter on implementing LaTeX on multiple platforms and an entirely new section on creating presentations; he discusses both the simpler FoilTex package and the more sophisticated Beamer package. Rounding out this book is a major revision to the amsart document class.

This comprehensive and up-to-date guide is the result of over two centuries of LaTeX experience. As Grtzer began as a user of LaTeX, he writes from a users perspective, making this guide accessible to the beginner and rewarding to the more experienced LaTeX user.

Key features of The LaTeX Book:

A simple, example-based, visual approach

A quick introduction (Part I), allowing readers to type their first articles in only a few hours

Sample articles to demonstrate the basic structure of LaTeX and AMS articles

Useful appendices containing mathematical and text symbol tables and information on how to convert from older versions

A new chapter on implementing TeX and LaTeX on a PC, MAC or UNIX machine.

Also a new chapter on presentations with details on both the FoilTeX and Beamer packages

Another new chapter describing amsrefs, a simpler method for formatting references that incorporates and replaces BibTeX data

This edition also integrates amajor revision to the amsart document class, along with updated examples

-----

From reviews of prior editions:

meets the needs of mathematicians publishing mathematics

Zentrallblatt

This book is truly unique in its focus on getting started fast yet keeping it simple. It is indispensable for the beginner and a handy reference for the experienced user.

Bulletin of the Mathematical Association of India

I came away with the impression that this book is a very helpful and useful tool for all scientists and engineers.

Synopsis:

This is the fourth edition of the standard introductory text and complete reference for scientists in all disciplines, as well as engineers. This fully revised version includes important updates on articles and books as well as information on a crucial new topic: how to create transparencies and computer projections, both for classrooms and professional meetings. The text maintains its user-friendly, example-based, visual approach, gently easing readers into the secrets of Latex with The Short Course. Then it introduces basic ideas through sample articles and documents. It includes a visual guide and detailed exposition of multiline math formulas, and even provides instructions on preparing books for publishers.

Synopsis:

Gratzera (TM)s book is a solution.

-European Mathematical Society Newsletter

For close to two decades, Math into Latex has been the standard introduction and complete reference for writing articles and books containing mathematical formulas. In this fourth edition, the reader is provided with important updates on articles and books. An important new topic is discussed: transparencies (computer projections).

Key features of More Math into Latex, 4th edition:

- Installation instructions for PC and Mac users

- An example-based, visual approach and a gentle introduction with the Short Course

- A detailed exposition of multiline math formulas with a Visual Guide

- A unified approach to Tex, Latex, and the AMS enhancements

- A quick introduction to creating presentations with computer projections

From earlier reviews of Math into Latex:

There are several Latex guides, but this on wins hands down for the elegance of its approach and breadth of coverage.

-Amazon.com Best of 2000, Editora (TM)s choice

A novice reader will be able to learn the most essential features of Latex sufficient to begin typesetting papers within a few hours of timea ]An experienced Tex user, on the other hand, will find a systematic and detailed discussion of Latex features.

-Report on Mathematical Physics

A very helpful and useful tool for al scientists and engineers.
