Typesetting Help

We will require that you submit homework electronically in ASCII, Postscript or PDF format. If you would like to typeset your homework, this LaTeX Tutorial (PDF, PostScript) may help you get started. We highly recommend taking the time to learn LaTeX to write up your assignments. (It is required for at least one of the core classes in the Spring, so you might as well learn now.)
