Help with LaTeX, etc.

To get started with LaTeX, I recommend using the following
template. Just enter your personal information and
the text of your writeup. For more advanced usage, try this tutorial,
Leslie Lamport's manual,
and this
tutorial.

To plot experimental results, there are many choices, including gnuplot, Matlab, Mathematica, and Excel. The
first three can write to postscript and be included in LaTeX, and possibly Word.
Excel plots can be included in Word.

To draw pictures, using xfig will allow you to save your figure in
encapsulated postscript, LaTeX format, etc., which you can include in LaTeX. In Word, you can use
its picture drawing package.
