Lecture notes should be typeset with LaTeX, using the following template:
If you are not familiar with LaTeX,
a good source of information are the Web pages of the TeX Users Group .
- lect00.tex - Start with this file,
and add your notes to it.
- handout.cls - A support file
needed by lect00.tex.
The most common way to include drawings in your text is to
produce Encapsulated Postscript (EPS) files using a drawing
program. The programs available include:
EPS files are included in LaTeX documents using
psfig or epsfig package included in most LaTeX distributions.
- xfig (or idraw) on most UNIX systems,
- Adobe Illustrator on Mac's
and PC's. In Illustrator, it is recommended to save the files
as AI EPS files version 7.0 (later format versions occasionally
produce files that cannot be included in LaTeX documents)
with no preview or thumbnail, with document fonts included.
Submitting your notes
Please try to complete the notes within one week after the
lecture and send it to the instructor.
Send the directory with your files via e-mail.
You can do this with the following command (minor modifications
may be necessary for UNIX systems other then IRIX):
tar cvfz - * | uuencode notes#.tar.gz | Mail -s "lecture#"
Remember to remove .dvi, .log, .blg
and .aux files as well as the final Postscript output
before sending us the files, but do not forget to include the
Postscript files for the figures.
The instructor might request further changes to the notes. The
final version of the notes will be distributed to the class, and
also made available on the course web page (with your name on it).
