"Why is 'lEX so hard to use?" is the most frequent comment/complaint made by (frustrated) 'lEX users. The answer: Because it is programmable (has many features commonly found in programming languages), because it pays attention to detail, and because its creator has developed it for his own use (perhaps also his administrative assistant's) and not for general use. The material presented here is a direct result of this complaint and is an attempt to make it easier for inexperienced users to get the kind of high-quality typesetting that is possible with 'lEX. The material is based on classes taught since 1985, and on the author's personal experience with 'lEX, which includes writing three books and numerous articles, handouts, and letters. Both introductory and advanced material is included here. There are many examples as well as a detailed discussion of topics, such as \ valign and \emergencystretch, that are only briefly touched upon in The TpJXbook. Chapter 20 describes the macros used to typeset this book; it also lists the METAFONT programs for the special characters used.

TeX Reference Manual

The TeX Reference Manual is the first comprehensive reference manual written by a programmer for programmers. It contains reference pages for each of TeX's 325 primitive control sequences. Over 80% of its reference pages contain examples that range from simple to challenging. Each example is typeset verbatim in a style which is easy to read and experiment with. TeX Reference Manual also just typesets the example, so you can see what it makes, and explains how the example works. The description on each primitive's reference page is an annotated discussion of The TeXbook's treatment of the primitive. That means a TeX user will find it natural to move back and forth between the two books. One of TeX Reference Manual's innovative features is families. They simplify the search for the primitive which performs a particular task.

Statistics Applied to Clinical Trials

Self-Assessment Book

The current book can be studied together with the texbook Statistics Applied To Clinical Trials by the same authors, or separately. The authors often hear that students have difficulties in understanding statistics from a textbook and that self-assessment through exercises and examples is required. Rather than trying to be complete, this book focuses on the main aspects, including the test statistics generally used for the primary analysis of continuous and proportional data from randomized controlled clinical trials. In the past few years statistical analysis has increasingly been left to the computer, and clinical investigators are at a loss to understand the limitations of the research and its statistical analysis, on the one hand, while on the other hand, statistical results are often overemphasized. This self-assessment book is not only useful for investigators involved in the field of clinical trials, but also for every physician who wishes to better understand the data from trials as published currently.

The Joy of TEX

A Gourmet Guide to Typesetting with the AMS-TEX Macro Package

The Joy of TeX is the user-friendly guide to AMSTeX, a software package based on the computer typesetting language TeX. AMSTeX was designed to simplify typesetting of mathematical quantities, equations, and displays, and to format the output according to any of various preset style specifications. This second edition of Joy reflects the changes introduced on Version 2.0 of the AMSTeX macro package. The first two parts of the manual, ``Starters'' and ``Main Courses'', teach the reader how to typeset the kind of text and mathematics one ordinarily encounters. ``Sauces and Pickles'', the third section, treats more exotic problems and includes a 60-page dictionary of special TeXniques. The manual also includes descriptions of conventions of mathematical typography to help the novice technical typist. Appendices list handy summaries of frequently used and more esoteric symbols. This manual is useful for technical typists as well as scientists who prepare their own manuscripts. For the novice, exercises sprinkled generously throughout each chapter encourage the reader to sit down at a terminal and learn through experimentation.

A First Course in Scientific Computing

Symbolic, Graphic, and Numeric Modeling Using Maple, Java, Mathematica, and Fortran90

Author: Rubin H. Landau

Publisher: Princeton University Press

ISBN: 1400841178

This book offers a new approach to introductory scientific computing. It aims to make students comfortable using computers to do science, to provide them with the computational tools and knowledge they need throughout their college careers and into their professional careers, and to show how all the pieces can work together. Rubin Landau introduces the requisite mathematics and computer science in the course of realistic problems, from energy use to the building of skyscrapers to projectile motion with drag. He is attentive to how each discipline uses its own language to describe the same concepts and how computations are concrete instances of the abstract. Landau covers the basics of computation, numerical analysis, and programming from a computational science perspective. The first part of the printed book uses the problem-solving environment Maple as its context, with the same material covered on the accompanying CD as both Maple and Mathematica programs; the second part uses the compiled language Java, with equivalent materials in Fortran90 on the CD; and the final part presents an introduction to LaTeX replete with sample files. Providing the essentials of computing, with practical examples, A First Course in Scientific Computing adheres to the principle that science and engineering students learn computation best while sitting in front of a computer, book in hand, in trial-and-error mode. Not only is it an invaluable learning text and an essential reference for students of mathematics, engineering, physics, and other sciences, but it is also a consummate model for future textbooks in computational science and engineering courses. A broad spectrum of computing tools and examples that can be used throughout an academic career Practical computing aimed at solving realistic problems Both symbolic and numerical computations A multidisciplinary approach: science + math + computer science Maple and Java in the book itself; Mathematica, Fortran90, Maple and Java on the accompanying CD in an interactive workbook format
