University of Iowa Latex style sheet and associated information

This latest version is due to Michael McLendon, who graduated in the summer of 2002.

Graphical User Interfaces

Scientific Word and WorkPlace, a popular interface to LaTeX for PC Windows and the Power MacIntosh. Student prices are available.
Lyx, an open software visual interface for Latex. It is available for Linux, PC/Windows, and Macintosh.


MathJax interprets LaTeX embedded in a webpage and then displays the compiled LaTeX output on that page.  For example:

\[\begin{aligned} \dot{x} & = \sigma(y-x) \\ \dot{y} & = \rho x - y - xz \\ \dot{z} & = -\beta z + xy \end{aligned} \] \[(\frac{-b\pm\sqrt{b^2-4ac}}{2a}\] \[\mathbf{V}_1 \times \mathbf{V}_2 = \begin{vmatrix} \mathbf{i} & \mathbf{j} & \mathbf{k} \\ \frac{\partial X}{\partial u} & \frac{\partial Y}{\partial u} & 0 \\ \frac{\partial X}{\partial v} & \frac{\partial Y}{\partial v} & 0 \end{vmatrix} \] \[P(E) = {n \choose k} p^k (1-p)^{ n-k} \] \[ \frac{1}{\Bigl(\sqrt{\phi \sqrt{5}}-\phi\Bigr) e^{\frac25 \pi}} = 1+\frac{e^{-2\pi}} {1+\frac{e^{-4\pi}} {1+\frac{e^{-6\pi}} {1+\frac{e^{-8\pi}} {1+\ldots} } } } \] \[ 1 + \frac{q^2}{(1-q)}+\frac{q^6}{(1-q)(1-q^2)}+\cdots = \prod_{j=0}^{\infty}\frac{1}{(1-q^{5j+2})(1-q^{5j+3})}, \quad\quad \text{for $|q|<1$}. \]
