Typesetting Materials

This collection contains my favorite typesetting materials for mathematics. Currently I use MiKTeX, WinEdt and TeXCAD 32. This is enough to create the materials showcased at
(I also use some special, commercial fonts from Y&Y TeX, but it's possible to easily live without them.)

TeXnicCenter is included, because it is a free alternative to WinEdt.

Full service public domain TeX package for Windows. Install this first and start the previewer ("yap") once to make it the default TeX previewer.

After installing MiKTeX, install WinEdt. It should automatically interface with MiKTeX (it has a pre-configuration). The free version will only work 30 days and will ask you to register. The registration fee is reasonable, though.

TeXCAD for Windows

Added 08/05/2009
TeXCAD for Windows can be installed independently of WinEdt. It is configured to interface with MiKTeX for previewing. The author is still updating it, which means features that are not in the review are added and the program is now even better than it wa


Added 08/05/2009
Public Domain front end for MiKTeX. Since I already had WinEdt, I did not want to switch. It seems interchangeable with WinEdt, though, and there is no license fee.

A Gentle Introduction to TeX

Added 08/05/2009
Quick introduction to TeX. Not a replacement for a book on LaTeX, but it has worked for years as my only reference (in conjunction with a template for LaTeX, as posted at ).

Graphe easy

Added 08/05/2009
When I found this program I decided to replace all two dimensional graphs in my textbook with graphics produced by Graphe easy.
