Scientific Word-processing with LaTexShareware LaTeX and TeX Sources:
TeX, LaTeX and other versions of TeX are powerful typesetting systems that are very widely used in scientific wordprocessing, in particular by mathematicians. UAS math majors are encouraged to become familiar with at least one of these shareware products when preparing papers for class projects.
The WinEdt front-end and MiKTeX typesetting system are installed on the UAS network and are available on all computer lab machines, the Learning center machines and some laptops. This program can accessed in the Math & Science Folder.
- The WinEdt Homepage is the place to go if you wish to obtain a copy of WinEdt, a widely used (shareware) front-end for compilers and typesetting systems, such as TeX or HTML. WinEdt's highlighting schemes can be customized for different modes and its spell checking functionality supports multi-lingual setups, with dictionaries (word-lists) for many languages available for downloading from WinEdt's Community Site.
- Dr. Dave Arnold's Homepage has a nice help manual, Writing Scientific Papers in LaTeX, which includes an introduction to using WinEdt along with installation pointers.
- A quick guide to using LaTeX (PDF | 2.2Mb)
- You may download AMS-LaTeX from the AMS Author Resource Center, look at the various resources under the section on Author Tools.
- The MAA's page on Hypertext Help with LaTeX has additional resources on LaTeX and AMS-LaTeX.
- Other TeX related links can be found by performing a web search using the key words TeX or LaTeX.
Non-shareware Scientific Word Processing Packages:
- Various levels of scientific word processing software can be obtained from the MacKichan Software Inc. homepage. This site also has some user-help links for the software.
SPSS can be accessed on the UAS Network in the Business Management Folder.
- The SPSS Homepage has some helpful information on using SPSS
- The Stat/Math Center of Indiana University at http://www.indiana.edu/~statmath/stat/spss/win/
- The SSDS page of Stanford University's Libraries and Academic Resources home, located at https://library.stanford.edu/services/social_sci_data_soft/software_docs.html, has lots of useful material for SPSS and other statistical software.
R is a free software environment for statistical computing and graphics. It compiles and runs on a wide variety of UNIX platforms, Windows and MacOS.
- All information that you will need on R, including downloading and user help, is located on the homepage of The R Project for Statistical Computing at http://www.r-project.org/
- Tinn-R is an alternative script editor that has the capability of highlighting, formatting and checking R syntax as it is entered. This script editor is free and can be downloaded from http://www.sciviews.org/Tinn-R/.
- The R-Commander: A Basic-Statistics GUI for R along with relevant instructions may be downloaded from http://socserv.mcmaster.ca/jfox/Misc/Rcmdr/. This was written for courses equivalent to UAS STAT 273 and is public domain software (i.e., free). This would serve as a great introduction to those interested in developing their skills in using R.
