Thanks to the HMC Mathematics System Administrator, Claire
Connelly, for compiling these resources and teaching me a great deal
Online Resources for TeX and LaTeX
- CTAN—the Comprehensive TeX Archive
Network --CTAN maintains a comprehensive archive of TeX and
LaTeX packages, formats, fonts, document classes, documentation, and
other materials, including complete TeX systems.
- The UK-TUG
FAQ --Answers many frequently asked questions about TeX and LaTeX. A
good first place to check if you're having problems.
comp.text.tex is the official Usenet newsgroup for
discussing TeX and LaTeX questions. Chances are that any problems
you're having, someone else has already had, asked about on
and gotten an answer. You can search
the newsgroup with Google.
- Google -Google is probably
your best bet for finding information outside
- TUG, the TeX Users Group
- TUG is the main international TeX User Group. TUG runs annual
conferences, maintains and distributes the TeX Live CD-ROM, and supports the
work of the LaTeX Project Team.
- Donald E.
Knuth's Home Page --Knuth is the author of TeX, and a renowned
computer scientist. He's mostly offline, but does maintain a webpage
with some information about his work, past, present, and future.
Claire has reviewed the LaTeX books that are out there, and trust me,
she knows what she is talking about.
My personal favorite is Math into LaTeX by George
Grätzer which is easy to read, well-written and fairly
Templates for the PDE Lecture Series
