1. ## Free Templates?

Do you know of any free LaTeX source code that you can modify (i.e. LaTeX source code of math lecture notes)?

2. This may not be what you have asked about at all.
But if you Windows, this is a free TeX editor: MathType: Download TeXaide.

3. Thanks. I have Texnic Center. But now I can write Word documents using LaTeX!

4. Is it possible to create a "Field Tower" in LaTeX (however it is called).

See below for what I mean.

There is a picture environment in LaTeX that can be used. Here's some code I already had in a document, but it contains all the picture commands you would need to draw your diagram.

$\setlength{\unitlength}{2.5cm}
\begin{picture}(1,1.35)(0,-.50)
\put(-.15,0.0){p}
\put(1.10,.75){q}
\put(1.10,0.0){r}
\put( .85,-.50){s}
\qbezier(0,0)(0,0)(1.00,0.750)
\qbezier(0,0)(0,0)(1.00,0.00)
\qbezier(0,0)(0,0)( .75,-.50)

\end{picture}
$

Code:
\setlength{\unitlength}{2.5cm}
\begin{picture}(1,1.35)(0,-.50)
\put(-.15,0.0){p}
\put(1.10,.75){q}
\put(1.10,0.0){r}
\put( .85,-.50){s}
\qbezier(0,0)(0,0)(1.00,0.750)
\qbezier(0,0)(0,0)(1.00,0.00)
\qbezier(0,0)(0,0)( .75,-.50)

\end{picture}
PS: The use of qbezier to draw lines is a trick I learned from a web site. It is much easier and more flexible to draw lines like that then using the standard method from the picture environment.

PS 2: Don't try making making very complicated pictures because there is a limit on the length of the code the LaTeX engine will allow. That limit is set by the administrators (and I think I asked MathGuru to increase it once.)

6. I have just downloaded Texaide but when I copy it to the clipboard on Word and then paste it, it just shows up as code. It doesn't seem to translate into symbols. Any ideas?

7. TeXAide will not put equations into WORD. You need a full version of MathType to do that. However, will generate LaTeX code that can be used in forums like this.

If you copy code and paste it into a post you will get some thing like this:
$\frac{w}{z} = \frac{{w\overline z }}{{\left| z \right|^2 }}$.
Change $to &#091;math] and change$ to &#091;/math] you will get $\frac{w}{z} = \frac{{w\overline z }}{{\left| z \right|^2 }}$

8. ## LaTex

So that's how you guys get that stuff on there. Ok. This site is awesome man.

9. ## test

$
\frac{3}{4}

10. ## test

$2^2$

$\frac{3 }{x^3}$
