Seminars for 2012/13
16 April 2012: Introduction to LaTex (Two Day Course - 16/17 April): UPDATED (Essex Short Courses in Social Research)
Dr Alex Quiroz-Flores from Department of Government, University of Essex
At 10:00 in 5A.325.
LaTeX is a system for high-quality typesetting that is particularly useful for technical and scientific documents. This course prepares students to use all the power of LaTex to typeset any type of manuscript.
The course begins with the typesetting of articles and books. This includes the general set up of a document, fonts, paragraphs, lists, footnotes and, of course, BibTex. Having done this, the students are introduced to the use of mathematical formulas, symbols, equations, matrices, and tables.
The course also covers the interface between LaTex and statistical software to produce tables of estimation results. The students will also learn to use figures in LaTex. Finally, the course covers Beamer, the flexible and powerful LaTex class to create amazing slides for presentations.
Participants will need to bring a laptop computer. Details of free software to download and install prior to the course will be provided nearer the time.
