Mathematics CIIT: LaTeX Resources

Department of Mathematics, CIIT

This page contains LaTeX template of CIIT Mathematics, MSc Project and MS Thesis templates.

LaTeX is a high-quality typesetting system. LaTeX is the de facto standard for the publication of scientific documents.

Learn what LaTeX is, which features it has, and how it works. Learn to write different form of equations, inserting graphics and making tables. Making presentation in the LaTeX.

The main aim of the workshop is to give a minimum knowledge of LaTeX to attendees to start writing research papers, MSc project or MS thesis.

The following topics will be covered. These topics are considered as core topics and can be extended with in the stipulated time.

Three separte software and installation are needed to run the LaTeX on windows.

After installing above software, configure Sumatra PDF and TeXstudio for forward and inverse search.

To activate forward and inverse search, go in TeXstudio and Option > Configure TeXstudio > Commands > External PDF viewer

Replace it with following code:

For 32bit Operating System

"C:\PROGRA~1\SumatraPDF\SumatraPDF.exe" -reuse-instance -forward-search "?c:am.tex" @ -inverse-search """""C:\PROGRA~1\TeXstudio\texstudio.exe"""" """%%f""" -line %%l" "?am.pdf"

For 64bit Operating System (if 64bit SumatraPDF is installed)

"C:\PROGRA~1\SumatraPDF\SumatraPDF.exe" -reuse-instance -forward-search "?c:am.tex" @ -inverse-search """""C:\PROGRA~2\TeXstudio\texstudio.exe"""" """%%f""" -line %%l" "?am.pdf"

For 64bit Operating System (if 32bit SumatraPDF is installed)

"C:\PROGRA~2\SumatraPDF\SumatraPDF.exe" -reuse-instance -forward-search "?c:am.tex" @ -inverse-search """""C:\PROGRA~2\TeXstudio\texstudio.exe"""" """%%f""" -line %%l" "?am.pdf"

In above code, we considered that windows in installed in C drive. If it is installed in different drive then, please use the respective code instead of C. Also it was considered that programs are installed on their default location.

In the Build select “PDF Viewer: External PDF Viewer”


LaTeX Codes

  • To write inline equation

Use a $\$ $ (dollar) sign to write equation or symbols in between statements or sentences, e.g.
Let $I$ be an interval in $\mathbb{R}$ and $f:I\to \mathbb{R}$ be a function

Let $I$ be an interval in $\mathbb{R}$ and $f:I\to \mathbb{R}$ be a function
  • To write an equation

Use double dollar $(\$\$)$ to write dedicated equation, e.g.,
$$\sin^2 \theta + \cos^2 \theta =1$$

$$\sin^2 \theta + \cos^2 \theta =1$$ 

If you wish that equation number appear automatically to this equation, then write in the following way:

\sin^2 \theta + \cos^2 \theta =1

\begin{equation} \sin^2 \theta + \cos^2 \theta =1 \end{equation}
