About the book
LaTeX FOR BEGINNERS presents all that a beginner would need to know to produce documents of high typographical quality. Beginning with a gentle introduction, the book proceeds to discuss how the LaTeX code may be written to produce simple documents. The complicating features (different fonts and font sizes, special characters including European characters, double column entries, tables and figures and many more) are covered one by one. How cross-references are made, and how an index of important words and bibliography generated are also explained in detail.
Apart from the students and researchers the book can be used with advantage by lawyers, media persons and even the lay public.
• Plenty of illustrative examples with the LaTeX code for each topic and example displayed alongside
• Detailed coverage of mathematical equations
• Suggestions and instructions for running a hands-on workshop
• Some computer related information for the benefit of nearly computer illiterate beginners
