This is just a small and simple tutorial, maybe just an introduction to LaTeX. I will try to keep improving it. LaTeX is a document markup language and document preparation system for the TeX typesetting program.
Sometimes in your document, you want to have something like this:. This kind of box helps our report or book look nice. In this short tutorial, we will show you a step by step box design using mdframed package in LaTeX.
Tables can be a very efficient way to present information, in fact, we use them often in this tutorial. When writing scientific papers, there are almost always tables of some sort to present data. However, tables can get quite complicated in LaTeX due mostly to assumptions about what the compiler will do with the input.
Nevertheless, I recently sat down, began writing, and after not too long, I came up with a presentable result that I would like to share. In order to even spacing all around, we change the page margins to 3cm using the geometry package. In case you prefer to add a photo to your CV, try the following slightly more complex code, using minipage:. Straight forward.
This article is a guide to constructing a decent parent file for a thesis or dissertation compiled in Latex. The specific details implemented here, and included in the example files, are those set out by the guidelines for submission to the University of Nottingham, but can be easily amended to suit any sensible requirements. Considerable attention has been paid to presenting the final document as a PDF file, which keeps the file size manageable compared to postscript and allows groovy add-ons such as hyperlinks and back-referencing.
To start, open TeXShop. You should see a blank window, which looks like this:. In TeXShop, the code will be color coded.
The content of the final manuscript should be of sufficient written English quality to enable readers to follow the narrative easily. For IEEE Xplore authors not fluent in English may be expected to consult an individual who is fluent in English to check and correct their work. This means that the author must use the original IEEE template Word or Latex file as the base for its own paper text editing, and to read and follow the template text instructions to comply the IEEE Style.
LaTeX and the document class will normally take care of page layout issues for you. For submission to an academic publication, this entire topic will be out of your hands, as the publishers want to control the presentation. However, for your own documents, there are some obvious settings that you may wish to change: margins, page orientation and columns, to name but three. The purpose of this tutorial is to show you how to configure your pages.
For example:. If the TOC depth is not explicitly specified, it defaults to 3 meaning that all level 1, 2, and 3 headers will be included in the TOC. You also have to make sure the system package ghostscript is available in your system for pdfcrop to work.
