Templates for scientific papers
Written reports should be created in LaTeX under usage of the template below. The list of literature should be entered into the BibTeX-file according to the examples.
Seminar-reports shall be created as the only chapter in the file input.tex in the seminar-template, so that the seperate reports can be compiled into a "complete works" afterward.
LaTeX is included in most Linux-distributions (e.g. the TeTeX-packets). As editing-program for example Kile or Emacs with a Plugin (AUCTEX) can be used.
In Windows, you can use MiKTeX (Latex Compiler) combined with TeXnicCenter (alternatively WinEdt or TeXworks) as an editing-program.
A decent compilation about LaTeX is given by Matthias Pospiech
Remark about MiKTeX: For our template, the "Small" version is sufficient. Furthermore, you'll need the following LaTeX-packets: vmargin, fancyhdr and thumbpdf. These can be downloaded as *.CAB files from http://www.dante.de/cgi-bin/ctan-index.
