  1. 1. A LTEX for beginners Stéphane Péchard September 22, 2009 Stéphane Péchard (spechard) A L TEX for beginners v1.0 published under GNU FDL 1 / 43
  2. 2. Outline 1 A Introduction (or Why using LTEX?) 2 First document Document structure Form-content separation Basic commands 3 Mathematics and code 4 Playing with content 5 Going further 6 Resources Stéphane Péchard (spechard) A L TEX for beginners v1.0 published under GNU FDL 2 / 43
  3. 3. Some terminology TEX. . . is a low-level markup and programming language was created by Donald Knuth between 1977 and 1989! is very stable and powerful but time-consuming and difficult to learn A LTEX. . . is a package of macros based on TEX to make a document preparation system created by Leslie Lamport and still actively maintained easier to code and extendable (classes, packages, styles) A but TEX = LTEX Stéphane Péchard (spechard) A L TEX for beginners v1.0 published under GNU FDL 3 / 43
  4. 4. Pros and cons of a non-WYSIWYG approach Pros style is consistent (layout, fonts, tables, maths, etc.) mathematics are easily typeset indexes, footnotes and references are easily generated the author is forced to correctly structure your documents Cons the final result is not visible straight away A the necessary LTEX commands have to be learned customization can sometimes be difficult A LTEX uses a WYSIWYM-approach: What You See Is What You Mean Stéphane Péchard (spechard) A L TEX for beginners v1.0 published under GNU FDL 4 / 43
  5. 5. A Simplified overview of the TEX/LTEX system additionnal data (fmt transcript (log) cls sty ldf tfm fd def) printer document formatted TEX screen input (tex) output (dvi pdf) internal files (aux toc lof) web A Mittelbach Frank & Goossens Michel, The LTEX Companion, Second Edition, 2004.

  8. 8. Preamble – document class d o c u m e n t c l a s s [ 1 1 pt , a 4 paper , oneside ] { report } % global options class First line of code, it defines the type of document and some global options. Common classes are: article for articles, presentations, short reports, documentation. . . report for reports containing several chapters, small books, thesis. . . book for real books. . . letter for writing letters. For more classes and options: http://en.wikibooks.org/wiki/LaTeX/Basics Stéphane Péchard (spechard) A L TEX for beginners v1.0 published under GNU FDL 8 / 43
  9. 9. Preamble – package inclusion, with options u s e p a c k a g e [ utf 8 ] { inputenc } A lot of packages exist, the most important are: amsmath, amssymb and amsthm for mathematical symbols babel for the internationalization of LaTeX, mandatory fontenc to choose the font encoding of the output text geometry for easy management of document margins graphicx to manage external pictures inputenc to choose the encoding of the input text, mandatory For more packages: http://en.wikibooks.org/wiki/LaTeX/Packages Stéphane Péchard (spechard) A L TEX for beginners v1.0 published under GNU FDL 9 / 43
  10. 10. Once the form is fixed for the whole document. . . A simple document: exemple.tex d o c u m e n t c l a s s [ a 4 paper , 1 2 pt ] { article } u s e p a c k a g e [ utf 8 ] { inputenc } u s e p a c k a g e [ T 1 ] { fontenc } u s e p a c k a g e { lmodern } % f o n t u s e p a c k a g e { amsmath , amssymb , amsfonts } % maths u s e p a c k a g e [ english ] { babel } % b a b e l % content begins here t i t l e { Some explanations about stuff } % t h e title a u t h o r { Philip J .

Maecenas pretium and voilà! urna ut nisl semper sed mattis erat interdum. Vestibulum eget massa nisi. Donec feugiat consequat leo, a vehicula est imperdiet at. 2 Do you know I can do that? 2 I like maths: ∀x = 0, x = x x see it: http://spechard.dgplug.org/LaTeXForBeginners/exemple.pdf Stéphane Péchard (spechard) A L TEX for beginners v1.0 published under GNU FDL 12 / 43
  13. 13. Sectioning commands Code is organized depending on the logical structure of the content: Command Level part{this is a part} -1 chapter{this is a chapter} 0 section{this is a section} 1 subsection{this is a subsection} 2 subsubsection{this is a subsubsection} 3 paragraph{this is a paragraph} 4 subparagraph{this is a subparagraph} 5 Note: chapter{} only exists for book and report classes.

  18. 18. Donec feugiat consequat leo, a Do the maths! We need: A L TEX showcase for beginners usepackage{amsmath} 2 Do you know I Stéphane Péchard Inline with begin{math}...end{math}, or (...) or $...$ like: September 18, 2009 2 I like maths: ∀x = 0, x = x $ f o r a l l x neq 0 , f r a c { x ^2}{ x } = x $ x Abstract This (short) document is destined to show beginners how L TEX A can make things pretty! Not always easy though :-) or separate from the text with begin{displaymath}...end{displaymath} or or , which gives: 1 Mathematics begin{equation}...end{equation} [...] This is an exemple of equation separate from the text: tε fh,ε (x, y) = εEx,y Lx,yϕ (εu) ϕ(x) du (1) 0 Here is how to produce powers and indices: kn+1 = n2 + kn − kn−1 2 Stéphane Péchard (spechard) A L TEX for beginners v1.0 published under GNU FDL 18 / 43
  19. 19. A lot of symbols. . . and as many commands! ∝∝ ∴ ==≡≈∼ ∼ = ⊥ |= | ≤≥ ⊂⊃⊆⊇ ± ×÷∗ ◦• ⊕⊗ · ∩∪ ∧∨ †‡ ··· cos sin lim lim lim lim − ← → − ←↔→→←−←→−→ ↑ ←→ ⇑ =⇒⇐⇒⇐=⇒⇔ ⇐ ⇓ . . √ · : . . · · · . . . . . ¬∞ ∅∅ . ∠ ♥♦♦♦ ♠♣∀∃ ℘ℵ ∈∈ / √ ık ⊥ ∂ ð ¨˙.......← − f f αβγδ εζηθϑικλµνπ ρ σςτ υφϕχψω Stéphane Péchard (spechard) A L TEX for beginners v1.0 published under GNU FDL 19 / 43
  20. 20. Maths are easy to type Powers and indices: [ k_{n+1} = n ^2 + k_n ^2 − k_{n−1} kn+1 = n2 + kn − kn−1 2 ] Fractions and binomials: [ n! n f r a c { n ! } { k ! ( n−k ) ! } = binom { n }{ k } k!(n−k)! = k ] Roots: [ √ n s q r t [ n ]{1+ x+x^2+x^3+ l d o t s } 1 + x + x2 + x3 + . . . ] Stéphane Péchard (spechard) A L TEX for beginners v1.0 published under GNU FDL 20 / 43
  21. 21. You can do almost anything you want! Sums: [ 10 i=1 ti sum_{i =1}^{10} t_i ] Integrals: [ ∞ −x i n t _0^ i n f t y e^{−x } , dx 0 e dx ] Automatic bracket sizing: [ l e f t ( f r a c { x ^2}{ y ^3} r i g h t ) x2 y3 ] Stéphane Péchard (spechard) A L TEX for beginners v1.0 published under GNU FDL 21 / 43
  22. 22. And sometimes more. . . Matrices and arrays: [ A_{m , n } = b e g i n { pmatrix } a _{1 ,1} & a _{1 ,2} & cdots & a _{1 , n } a _{2 ,1} & a _{2 ,2} & cdots & a _{2 , n } vdots & vdots & ddots & v d o t s a_{m , 1 } & a_{m , 2 } & cdots & a_{m , n } end { pmatrix } ]   a1,1 a1,2 ··· a1,n   a2,1 a2,2 ··· a2,n   Am,n = .  . .   . . . . .. . .  .  am,1 am,2 · · · am,n http://en.wikibooks.org/wiki/LaTeX/Mathematics Stéphane Péchard (spechard) A L TEX for beginners v1.0 published under GNU FDL 22 / 43
  23. 23. Print the code! We need: usepackage{listings} b e g i n { lstlisting } [ language =[ GNU ] C++] Here is my code: #include <iostream> b e g i n { lstlisting } [ language=C++] using namespace std ; #include <iostream> using namespace std ; int main ( ) { int main ( ) { int N = 4 2 ; int N = 4 2 ; for ( int i = 0 ; i < N ; ++i ) for ( int i =0; i < N ; ++i ) cout << i << endl ; cout << i << endl ; return 0 ; } return 0 ; end { lstlisting } } end { lstlisting } 2 Labels and cross-reference Many languages: Ada, Assembler, bash,Example label{ssec:example} 2.1 C, C++, Caml, Cobol, Delphi, In this section, I put Fortran, HTML, Java, Logo, Matlab, Perl, Pascal, PHP, Prolog, Python, 2.2 Referencing R, Ruby, SQL, TeX, VHDL, XML, XSLT, etc. Now, I can do ref{ssec:example} to print the number of the previous sec- tion, which is 2.1. http://www.ctan.org/tex-archive/macros/latex/contrib/listings/ 2.3 Referencing a table Here, I make a reference and the table 1 of the following section. Stéphane Péchard (spechard) A L TEX for beginners v1.0 published under GNU FDL 23 / 43
  24. 24. Outline 1 A Introduction (or Why using LTEX?) 2 First document Document structure Form-content separation Basic commands 3 Mathematics and code 4 Playing with content 5 Going further 6 Resources Stéphane Péchard (spechard) A L TEX for beginners v1.0 published under GNU FDL 24 / 43
  25. 25. Lists and enumeration Three environments: b e g i n { itemize } i t e m first stuff first stuff i t e m second thing end { itemize } second thing b e g i n { enumerate } i t e m first stuff 1 first stuff i t e m second thing end { enumerate } 2 second thing b e g i n { description } i t e m [ itemize ] list with bullet points itemize list with bullet points i t e m [ enumerate ] numbered list enumerate numbered list i t e m [ description ] list with definitions description list with definitions end { description } Stéphane Péchard (spechard) A L TEX for beginners v1.0 published under GNU FDL 25 / 43
  26. 26. Labels and cross-referencing Three commands: label {marker} to make an object reference a marker, mostly like a name to reference the object marked before, it prints the ref {marker} number assigned to the object pageref{marker} will print the number of the page where the object is Important! This is a two-step process: first the compiler stores the labels, then it replaces the ref with the right number. Then, several compilation are necessary to see the proper output. A If LTEX uses deprecated labels information, you get a warning: LaTeX Warning: There were undefined references. Stéphane Péchard (spechard) A L TEX for beginners v1.0 published under GNU FDL 26 / 43
  27. 27. Tables: a tough one! The tabular environment: begin{tabular}[pos]...{table spec}end{tabular}: pos: vertical position table spec: column alignment and vertical lines h here l left-justified column b bottom c centered column c center r right-justified column t top p{width} paragraph column with text vertically aligned at the top ... :content management | vertical line & column separator || double vertical line start new row hline horizontal line cline partial line A One of the most difficult part of LTEX! Stéphane Péchard (spechard) A L TEX for beginners v1.0 published under GNU FDL 27 / 43
  28. 28. Tables: exemples, please! b e g i n { tabular }{ l c r } 1 & 2 & 3 h l i n e 1 2 3 4 & 5 & 6 h l i n e 7 & 8 & 9 4 5 6 end { tabular } 7 8 9 b e g i n { tabular } { | r | l | } hline 7 C 0 & hexadecimal 7C0 hexadecimal 3700 & octal c l i n e {2−2} 11111000000 & binary 3700 octal hline hline 11111000000 binary 1984 & decimal hline 1984 decimal end { tabular } http://en.wikibooks.org/wiki/LaTeX/Tables Stéphane Péchard (spechard) A L TEX for beginners v1.0 published under GNU FDL 28 / 43
  29. 29. Floats A float is an unbreakable box containing text, images, etc. to deal with objects that won’t fit on the current page to help when you really don’t want the object here just now not part of the normal stream of text, they’re separate entities may disturb beginners because it breaks they’re WYSIWYG mind! The author specifies placement with: h here (in fact as soon as possible in the text flow) t at the top of the page (the current or the following) b at the bottom of the page (the current or the following) p on a special page for floats only (far away) H precisely here (requires the float package, to be used wisely) Stéphane Péchard (spechard) A L TEX for beginners v1.0 published under GNU FDL 29 / 43
  30. 30. Figures and tables may be floats b e g i n { figure } [ placement specifier ] . . . figure contents . . . end { figure } This way, you can specify a caption{} for your table: b e g i n { table } [ h ] c a p t i o n { simple showcase . } b e g i n { tabular } { | r | l | } hline Table: simple showcase. 7 C 0 & hexadecimal 3700 & octal c l i n e {2−2} 7C0 hexadecimal 11111000000 & binary hline hline 3700 octal 1984 & decimal 11111000000 binary hline end { tabular } 1984 decimal end { table } Stéphane Péchard (spechard) A L TEX for beginners v1.0 published under GNU FDL 30 / 43
  31. 31. #include <iostream> using namespace std ; Remember labels? int main ( ) { int N = 4 2 ; for ( int i = 0 ; i < N ; ++i ) cout << i << endl ; Floats are always numbered, so they can be referred to return 0 ; } end { lstlisting } use label {} to create a marker always put the label after the caption, inside the float environment! 2 Labels and cross-reference again, (at least) two compilations are Example label{ssec:example} 2.1 needed! In this section, I put 2.2 Referencing b e g i n { table } [ h ] Now, I can do ref{ssec:example} to print the number of the previous sec- tion, which is 2.1. b e g i n { tabular } { | r | l | } hline 2.3 Referencing a table 7 C 0 & hexadecimal Here, I make a reference and the table 1 of the following section. 3700 & octal c l i n e {2−2} 11111000000 & binary 3 Tables hline hline 7C0 hexadecimal 1984 & decimal 3700 octal 11111000000 binary hline 1984 decimal end { tabular } Table 1: simple showcase. c a p t i o n { simple showcase . } l a b e l { tab : 1 9 8 4 r ep re se n ta ti on s } 2 end { table } Stéphane Péchard (spechard) A L TEX for beginners v1.0 published under GNU FDL 31 / 43
  32. 32. Graphics We need: usepackage{graphicx} The magical command use includegraphics[options]{name} to insert a extern graphic document there is a lot of options (height, width, trim, page, etc.): read the doc! you can insert png, jpg and pdf format images make it a float! b e g i n { figure } [ t ] Figure 1: Saint-Nazaire’s bridge. c a p t i o n { Saint−Nazaire ’ s bridge . } l a b e l { fig : S a i n t N a z a i r e B r i d g e } centering i nc lu de g ra ph ic s [ width= t e x t w i d t h , trim =400px 100 px 0 px 400 px , clip ] { Pont_de_Saint−Nazaire } 4 Graphics end { figure } Stéphane Péchard (spechard) A L TEX for beginners v1.0 published under GNU FDL 32 / 43
  33. 33. Page Layout Everything is under control! 4 5 2 Header default page size: US letter format 6 A4 format (21x29.7cm): documentclass[a4paper]{article} everything is a parameter (header, footer, margins, body sizes) Margin notes Body 7 Package geometry to define margins, 9 10 orientation, etc. 3 landscape (portrait is default): 8 usepackage[landscape]{geometry} 11 Footer margins: usepackage[hmargin=3cm, 1 vmargin=2cm]{geometry} http://en.wikibooks.org/wiki/LaTeX/Page_Layout Stéphane Péchard (spechard) A L TEX for beginners v1.0 published under GNU FDL 33 / 43
  34. 34. Headers and footers content We need: usepackage{fancyhdr} % page h e a d e r s / f o o t e r s f o r a t w o s i d e document p a g e s t y l e { fancy } % m a n d a t o r y fancyhf {} % c l e a r d e f a u l t s fancyhead [ RO ] { nouppercase {emph{ r i g h t m a r k }}} % RO=r i g h t −odd fancyhead [ LE ] { nouppercase {emph{ l e f t m a r k }}} % LE=l e f t −e v e n fancy pagestyl e { plain }{ % f o r c h a p t e r p a g e s fancyhf {} % c l e a r d e f a u l t s renewcommand { headrulewidth }{0 pt }} % remove t h e l i n e using: thepage the current page number leftmark the current chapter name rightmark the current section name thesection current section number http://en.wikibooks.org/wiki/LaTeX/Page_Layout Stéphane Péchard (spechard) A L TEX for beginners v1.0 published under GNU FDL 34 / 43
  35. 35. Useful things http://en.wikibooks.org/wiki/LaTeX/Useful_Measurement_Macros Measurement units and macros A LTEX knows a lot of measurement units (pt, bp, mm, cm, in, ex, em) and a lot of macros: baselineskip , baselinestretch , columnsep, columnwidth, evensidemargin, linewidth , oddsidemargin, paperwidth paperheight, parindent , parskip tabcolsep , textheight , textwidth topmargin, unitlength , etc. you can change their values: setlength{textwidth}{0.5paperwidth} or make a slight change: addtolength{itemsep}{0.5 baselineskip } Contents Tables of interest: 1 Mathematics 1 2 Labels and cross-reference 2 tab le of c on te nt s 2.1 Example . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 2 listoffigures 2.2 Referencing . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 2 listoftables 2.3 Referencing a table . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 2 3 Tables 2 4 Graphics 3 Stéphane Péchard (spechard) A L TEX for beginners v1.0 published under GNU FDL 35 / 43

  37. 37. A Guidelines to make LTEX coding easier Split the document into multiple files to avoid writing in one giant document ; input{file} inserts content as it in file ; include{file} is more flexible thanks to includeonly {file1, file2} ; Create and recreating new commands using newcommand{name}[num]{definition} with name the name of the new command, num number of arguments taken, up to 9 (default=0), definition the command itself newcommand { note } [ 1 ] { m a r g i n p a r {% n o t e s i n m a r g i n v s k i p − b a s e l i n e s k i p %r a i s e t h e m a r g i n p a r a b i t r a g g e d r i g h t f o o t n o t e s i z e color { red } { i t s h a p e h r u l e s m a l l s k i p #1} p a r s m a l l s k i p h r u l e }} newcommand { nonotes }{ renewcommand { note } [ 1 ] { } } Stéphane Péchard (spechard) A L TEX for beginners v1.0 published under GNU FDL 37 / 43
  38. 38. A bit of debugging: DON’T PANIC! Everybody makes error like: mistype or mis-spell commands forget curly braces type a forward slash / instead of a backslash use a special character by mistake But happily: A errors and warning are well defined in LTEX log ! Undefined control sequence . l . 6 t ab le of c on te nt s an editor may help you locate or even avoid them an erroneous document is not what you want, so don’t let them! Stéphane Péchard (spechard) A L TEX for beginners v1.0 published under GNU FDL 38 / 43
  39. 39. A bit of debugging: What can I do? A On the command line, when LTEX finds an error, you have to specify it what to do about it: Key Meaning x A stop and exit LTEX q carry on as best as possible and stop showing errors e stop and position the editor at error line (if possible) i correct here (not in the editor) and carry on r non-stop mode, ignore errors (up to 100) h try to give me more help Some editors run in non-stop mode and analyze log to show errors and warnings. http://en.wikibooks.org/wiki/LaTeX/Errors_and_Warnings Stéphane Péchard (spechard) A L TEX for beginners v1.0 published under GNU FDL 39 / 43
  40. 40. Going local :-) Want to print pretty bengali? Use XeTEX: A a variation around LTEX (component of TeXLive) based on unicode and modern fonts systems specific syntax for new features and own binary xelatex sample . tex http://methopath.wordpress.com/2008/06/26/writing-unicode- bengali-in-latex/ Stéphane Péchard (spechard) A L TEX for beginners v1.0 published under GNU FDL 40 / 43
  41. 41. Many (many!) packages bibtex bibliography management ; makeidx indexes management ; pstricks low-level and hitoric graphic package ; pgf modern, nice and simple graphics (preferred) ; beamer presentation class, like this one ; hyperref PDF hyperlinks management (use with caution) ; color to make colored text (use wisely) ; pdfpages to insert PDF or PS pages in a PDF ; verbatim A to insert LTEX code ; minipage to create a page in a page ; Stéphane Péchard (spechard) A L TEX for beginners v1.0 published under GNU FDL 41 / 43
  42. 42. Editors A Both ViM and Emacs have a LTEX edition mode. http://vim-latex.sourceforge.net/ http://www.gnu.org/software/auctex/ A Kile – a LTEX Environment (for KDE) http://kile.sourceforge.net/ Stéphane Péchard (spechard) A L TEX for beginners v1.0 published under GNU FDL 42 / 43
  43. 43. Many resources to learn even more Books: A Mittelbach Frank & Goossens Michel, The LTEX Companion, Second Edition, 2004. Donald E. Knuth, The TeX book, 1986. The Comprehensive LaTeX Symbol List (pdf) LaTeX Reference Card (pdf) Websites: http://www.latex-project.org/ – official website http://www.ctan.org/ – where you can find everything! http://www.tug.org/ – The TeX Users Group http://www.tex.ac.uk/cgi-bin/texfaq2html – The UK TeX FAQ http://en.wikibooks.org/wiki/LaTeX/ – a book being written online Stéphane Péchard (spechard) A L TEX for beginners v1.0 published under GNU FDL 43 / 43
