LaTeX is the leading text preparation system for high-quality documents, and is used extensively in the sciences and academia. The previous edition of this book has been essential reading for anyone wishing to gain a thorough understanding of LaTeX. It is the most comprehensive and authoritative guide available to traditional document layout – specialized graphics extensions and Web applications are covered in separate Companions. Much has changed in the ten years since the first edition was published. This new edition covers in depth all the major new developments, and updates coverage in all other areas. The authors, who are all core members of the LaTeX3 Project, cover not just the core of LaTex, but also all the important extensions that have been developed. This book is a perfect companion to Guide to LaTeX.
The LATEX typesetting system remains a popular choice for typesetting a wide variety of documents, from papers, journal articles, and presentations, to books–especially those that include technical text or demand high-quality composition. This book is the most comprehensive guide to making illustrations in LATEX documents, and it has been completely revised and expanded to include the latest developments in LATEX graphics. The authors describe the most widely used packages and provide hundreds of solutions to the most commonly encountered LATEX illustration problems.
