Custom paper size

\documentclass[a4paper]{amsart}
\usepackage{amssymb,latexsym}
\usepackage{graphicx, pgf, pst-all}

\usepackage[paperwidth=17truecm, paperheight=24truecm, centering, twoside, margin=1.58cm,heightrounded]{geometry}

\textwidth14truecm
\textheight20truecm

Looking for symbol

Converting .eps-files (automatically) to .pdf-files

Include a movie in a PDF Document

Example: omega.tex omega.mpg omega.pdf

[user@host] pdflatex omega.tex

View the PDF File in Acrobat Reader. It probably won't work on the Terminals.

Example

  • movie.tex

\documentclass[12pt,landscape]{article}
\usepackage{geometry}
\geometry{verbose,letterpaper}
\usepackage{movie15}
\usepackage{hyperref}
\begin{document}
Whispering-gallery mode in a quarter circle:
\begin{figure}[ht]

\includemovie[
  poster,
  text={\small(2-twist-spun.mp4)}
]{6cm}{4.8cm}{2-twist-spun.mp4}

\end{figure}
\end{document}

pdflatex movie.tex

Grafic / Drawing

xfig

inkscape

Save your image, eg as “image.svg”. In addition, in Inkscape go to the
option File -> Save a Copy and chose PDF as your output format in the
same folder as the SVG. In the PDF options popup that comes right after
select the options:

  * PDF+LaTeX: Omit text in PDF and create LaTeX file
  * Export area is drawing

Save and go to your LaTeX document.

\begin{figure}
    \centering
    \def\svgwidth{\columnwidth} % sets the image width, this is optional
    \input{image.pdf_tex}
\end{figure}
