Handbook of Typography for the Mathematical Sciences by Steven G. Krantz Summary
You know mathematics. You know how to write mathematics. But do you know how to produce clean, clear, well-formatted manuscripts for publication? Do you speak the language of publishers, typesetters, graphics designers, and copy editors? Your page design-the style and format of theorems and equations, running heads and section headings, page breaks, fonts, and spacing-makes the difference between, awkward, hard-to-read publications and coherent, professional ones. The Handbook of Typography for the Mathematical Sciences is your key to exercising control over how your books and articles look, read, and ultimately communicate your ideas. Focusing on TeX, today's medium of choice for producing mathematical documents, the author illuminates all of the issues associated with page design and seeing your manuscript smoothly and accurately through each step of its publication. Learn how to format, edit, and layout a page Examine a variety of graphics options: Postscript®, bitmaps, *.jpg, *.gif, and *.pdf files Discover powerful tools available for indexing, bibliographies, tables, and diagrams Access a compendium of all TeX commands commonly used in mathematical writing Explore ways to include diskettes, source code, or software available on the Internet with you publications Becoming acquainted with this material will make you a well-informed author equipped to deal with publishers, compositors, editors, and typesetters, with TeX consultants, copy editors, and graphics designers-an author who has a better understanding of the publishing process and is able to create better mathematics books.
