Overview

Type
Block course (2 SWS): Lectures in the morning, hands-on session in the afternoon
Lecturers
JP Dr. A. Arnold, Dr. O. Lenz and Henri Menke
Language
English (German if only Germans are there)
Date and Time
2014, 9:00 - 13:00, 14:00 - 17:00
Location
CIP-Pool of the ICP, Allmandring 3, 1. floor

The course is open to all students. Unfortunately, it is not part of the standard curriculum of physics. However, it can be taken as "fächerübergreifende Schlüsselqualifikation" (SQ, Kompetenzbereich 1) for 3 CP, so at least Physics BSc students can use it in their curriculum.

Requirements

The participants of the course are expected to have some basic knowledge about computer usage (e.g. using a text editor). Some programming skills are also an advantage, but not required.

Application

The number of participants is limited!

We have ~25 computers in the CIP-pool to do the hands-on sessions. If too many people apply, we can set up a second hands-on session group in our seminar room for people that bring their own laptop (WLAN is accessible). If there are more than 50 applications, the people in higher terms will be preferred.

To apply for a place, please write an email to henri@icp.uni-stuttgart.de that contains the following information:

  • Name
  • Email-Address
  • Registration number (Matrikelnummer)
  • Study subject (Studienfach)
  • Term of studying (Fachsemester)
  • If you have an ICP account, please send us the login name
  • Do you have a laptop with a LaTeX distribution (e.g. TeXlive or MikTeX) that you could use in the hands-on sessions?

Topics

This is just a coarse overview of the topics, which will be discussed. If you have any certain wishes, email me.

  • Plain TeX
  • LaTeX 2.09
  • LaTeX2ɛ
  • PGF/TikZ
  • Presentations with beamer
  • LaTeX3 Outlook

Resources

In this section you will find some commercial books, which this course is based on. In contrast to the books in the "Further reading" section, these cost money, but feature a wide variety of topics.

Further reading

These are some links to free books and documents about TeX and LaTeX, which I consider useful (there are much more out on the web).
