Event description

Description

Please note:

  • This session is open to research students at Birkbeck, University of London only.

  • Despite the proposed industrial action over the coming weeks, these sessions will be going ahead as planned.


Overview

LaTeX is a powerful typesetting system for producing documents of high typographic quality, the de facto standard for communication and publication of scientific outputs. The three-evening course, supported by practical hands-on exercises, with a particular emphasis on preparing a PhD thesis, will take students through all stages of using LaTeX: from downloading and installing the system to creating documents with complex structure (chapters and sections, various types of lists, figures and tables), typesetting mathematical formulas and using graphics, multi-lingual features, fine-tuning the layout, managing bibliographies, producing the index and table of contents and creating presentations.
