### Add the bibliography in the Table of Contents

October 5, 2008

From here:

You have to manually add the “Bibliography” entry into the table of contents. In order to do so, put the following just before the `\bibliography` entry

`\addcontentsline{toc}{chapter}{Bibliography}`

if you use the `book` or `report` document class, or

`\addcontentsline{toc}{section}{Bibliography}`

if you use the `article` document class.

In combination with the “Hyperref”-Package you need to put the line below the `\bibliography` entry.

### Citations within a caption in Latex

April 28, 2008

Citations within a caption of a table or figure can produce errors. You will need to use the “\protect” statement.

Latex tables can be a bit annoying. This tutorial provides a good overview.

### latex (pdflatex) include png jpg … images

November 29, 2007

I always forget the package name to include, so here it is

`\usepackage[pdftex]{graphicx}`

Once included, the package provides the following term

`\includegraphics[key_1 = . . . , key_2 = . . . ,  key_n=....]{ﬁlename}`

Options (keys) include:

```• scale = number — a magniﬁcation factor
• width = length — the width to which the ﬁgure should be scaled
• height = length — the height to which the ﬁgure should be scaled2
• totalheight = length — height plus depth of ﬁgure (to be used if ﬁgure  is rotated)
• keepaspectratio = true/false — maintains the height/width ratio
• angle = number — angle (in degrees) by which the ﬁgure is to be rotated  counter clockwise
• origin = location3 — the point about which rotation is to occur
• draft = true/false — prevents ﬁgure from being imported, but created   a named box with the dimensions of the ﬁgure (this option is used to speed  up processing)
• clip = true/false — excludes whatever is outside the bounding box
• bb = llx lly urx ury — enters the bounding box coordinates, which are   given by default in points (1/72 inch), manually (the bounding box might  be missing or you might want to alter it)
• viewport = llx lly urx ury — speciﬁes bounding box w.r.t. bottom left of existing bounding box; used with clip to select a part of the image (or to  clear unwanted margins).
• trim = dllx dlly durx dury — reduces the bounding box by the amount  speciﬁed
• hiresbb = true/false — reads the bounding box information from the  line %%HiResBoundingBox in ﬁgure ﬁle```
