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

Hints for delivering an effective mathematics presentation.  Go there.

A guide for preparing and delivering a mathematics poster presentation.  Go there.

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
developed by SIMU; we thank Dr. Meza for allowing us to share this with
you. Note: For some reason the PDF file does not look great on 
the screen, but it prints fine.)  Go there.

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:
    TEX-commandline c:\texmf\miktex\bin\latex.exe
    DVIWIN-commandline c:\texmf\miktex\bin\yap.exe
    DVIPS-commandline 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 GSVIEW-commandline 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
