SIMU Developed Resources

A LaTeX Guide developed for
SIMU students. (For some reason the PDF
file does not look great on the screen, but it prints fine.) Go

You also can download the input file
that was used to create this document.

 Going to Graduate School in
the Mathematical Sciences is an excellent
article written by Dr. Ricardo Cortez, Assistant Professor of Mathematics
at Tulane University and Dr. Colette Patt, Director of Science Student
Diversity Programs at the University of California, Berkeley. (This
article
was not developed by SIMU; we thank Dr.'s Cortez and Patt for allowing
us to share this with you.) Go
there. 

Dr. Juan Meza's article
"Surviving Graduate School". (This article was not

SIMU Software Links
 MikTeX. This is a
free TeX/LaTeX "engine" for PC's. Go there. 
 TeX for Windows.
This is a free, very good text editor for TeX/LaTeX for the PC.
Install the program. (This is only the editor; you NEED TO INSTALL
MikTeX or else
you will not be able to TeX or LaTeX your files.) Then run it and choose
"directories and
commands" from the options menu. Set at least the following:
TEXcommandline
c:\texmf\miktex\bin\latex.exe
DVIWINcommandline
c:\texmf\miktex\bin\yap.exe
DVIPScommandline
c:\texmf\miktex\bin\dvips.exe
Download. 
 Ghostview. This is
free software that allows you to view and print Postscript files.
This is useful, for example, if you have access to a Postscript printer and
want to print a
document with Postscript graphics. Once you have this installed, you
might want to add the target file to the GSVIEWcommandline
in your TeX
for Windows installation. Go
there. 
 Macaulay. This is free
software devoted to supporting research in algebraic
geometry and computational algebra. Go
there. 
 Singular. This is
a free computer algebra system for polynomial computations.
Go there. 
 Mathematica. This
is not free software! Mathematica is a very comprehensive
computer algebra system. You can purchase a student version of it
online for $139.95.
Go there. 
 Maple. This is not
free software! Maple is a very comprehensive
computer algebra system. Information on the student version is
sketchy. Go there.
