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 Tutorial

December 10, 2007

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
