For nearly three decades The LaTeX Companion has been the essential resource for anyone using LaTeX to create high-quality documents. Just like the earlier editions, this completely updated third edition is designed to serve as the stable core resource for users: covering all aspects of document production, from detailed micro-typography questions and macro-typography (heading design, lists, mathematics, tables, graphics, fonts, page-layout, etc.) to bibliography and index production.

All chapters have been thoroughly revised and in many cases largely extended to describe new important functionality and features. More than 5,000 add-on packages have been analyzed in detail, out of which roughly 10% have been chosen for inclusion in The LaTeX Companion. All important aspects of these packages are described to provide the user once again with a satisfying one-stop-shop experience for the decade to come.

Following the concept of the earlier versions, the new edition is full of novel tips and tricks for using LaTeX in both traditional and modern typesetting, and also shows you how to customize layout features to your own needs--from phrases and paragraphs to headings, lists, and pages.

New to this edition:

  • Inclusion of, or more details on, important new or changed large-scale packages, e.g., biblatex, fontspec, hyperref, mathtools, siunitx, tcolorbox, tikz, and unicode-math, to name just a few.
  • Coverage of newer engine developments, e.g., the use of Unicode engines with LaTeX.
  • Discussion of all vital changes to LaTeX itself, which is is undergoing a transformation to keep it relevant in the years to come. Examples are the new hook management system for LaTeX, the extended document command syntax, and the inclusion of the LaTeX3 programming layer into the LaTeX format.
  • Inclusion of many new, useful (smaller) packages in all chapters--each offering additional functionality.
  • Two new chapters devoted to the use of high-quality fonts for text and math (OpenType, TrueType, and Type 1), now available for use with LaTeX. They offer a comprehensive set of samples to choose from (more than 120 text font families and 40 math font layouts), compiled with the help of an expert font designer.
  • Revised discussions of multi-lingual support by the authors of the babel system to typeset text from a wide range of languages and cultures.
  • The chapter on bibliography generation now also covers the styles made available with biblatex and biber.
  • More than 1,500 fully tested examples (an increase of 30%) that illustrate the text and solve typographical and technical problems--all ready to run!

Part I contains chapters on: Introduction to LaTeX and its history - LaTeX's document structure - Basic formatting tools (paragraph level) - Basic formatting tools (larger structures) - Page layout - Tabular material - Float handling - Graphics generation and manipulation - Font selection and encodings

This volume (Part II) of the edition covers:

  • Text and symbol fonts
  • Higher mathematics
  • Fonts in formulas
  • Localizing documents
  • Index generation
  • Bibliography generation
  • Managing citations
  • Package documentation tools
  • LaTeX programming and troubleshooting problems

In short, the two parts of The LaTeX Companion, Third Edition, cover all you need to know about LaTeX use in the twenty-first century, while also offering expertly curated discussions of the best add-on packages now available.

Frank Mittelbach is the lead author of The LaTeX Companion, Third Edition, and is series editor of Addison-Wesley's Tools and Techniques for Computer Typesetting series. He is also technical lead of the LaTeX Project and, along with overseeing the original major release of LaTeX2_ε in 1994, he has overseen the 36 subsequent releases of this software. Frank is author or coauthor of several books and of many and varied LaTeX extension packages, such as AMS-LaTeX, doc, multicol, and NFSS: the New Font Selection Scheme. He is on the board of the International Gutenberg Society, an international association for the study of the history and development of printing technology and font-oriented media, where he focuses on the more recent period. He is currently leading a multi-year project for automatically producing tagged and accessible PDF output from LaTeX.

Ulrike Fischer lives with her husband in Bonn, Germany. After studying mathematics at the University of Bonn, Ulrike became interested in the internal handling of fonts and in chess typesetting. With the help of the first edition of The LaTeX Companion, she wrote at first the chessfss package, which allows users to choose between various chess fonts, and other chess-related packages. She joined the LaTeX Project after the TUG meeting in Rio de Janeiro, where she presented her package tagpdf to create tagged PDFs to the team members. Together with other members of the LaTeX Project she now maintains various packages including luaotfload, hyperref, xcolor, the new LaTeX PDF management code and more.


Frank Mittelbach是《The LaTeX Companion, Third Edition》的主要作者,也是Addison-Wesley的Tools and Techniques for Computer Typesetting系列的系列編輯。他還是LaTeX Project的技術負責人,並在1994年監督了LaTeX2_ε的首次重大發布,之後又監督了36次軟體的後續版本。Frank是幾本書的作者或合著者,也是許多不同的LaTeX擴展套件的作者,例如AMS-LaTeX、doc、multicol和NFSS:新字型選擇方案。他是國際古騰堡協會的董事會成員,該協會是一個研究印刷技術和字型媒體發展歷史的國際組織,他在其中專注於較近期的發展。他目前正在領導一個多年的項目,該項目旨在從LaTeX自動生成標記和可訪問的PDF輸出。

Ulrike Fischer與丈夫居住在德國波恩。在波恩大學學習數學後,Ulrike對字型的內部處理和國際象棋排版產生了興趣。在使用《The LaTeX Companion》第一版的幫助下,她首先編寫了chessfss套件,該套件允許用戶在不同的國際象棋字型之間進行選擇,以及其他與國際象棋相關的套件。在里約熱內盧的TUG會議上,她向團隊成員展示了她的tagpdf套件,該套件用於創建標記的PDF。與LaTeX Project的其他成員一起,她現在維護著各種套件,包括luaotfload、hyperref、xcolor和新的LaTeX PDF管理代碼等。
