### Latest version! Updated for Python-3! (careful with the cutting edge; you may cut yourself!)

Most recent (draft 17, January 27th, 2021)

• There aren’t any mistakes. (As far as we know.)
• If you think you have found any, keep quiet and don’t tell anyone! You could shatter our self-esteem.
• If you must be a nag: Email us

### To build from source:

#### You will need:

Sources for draft17. (click to expand)

You need one of the drafts, the citations, and the graphics archive.

$\mathrm{\LaTeX}$ (click to expand)
• the TeX Live distribution should work, but…
• Windows users may prefer MiKTeX
• while it’s not required, we edit the text using Lyx
• a number of $\mathrm{\LaTeX}$ packages, including but probably not limited to the following; you should be able to find them either using your $\mathrm{\TeX}$ distribution’s tools or by downloading them directly from CTAN; however, don’t try to install them unless your installation complains it can’t find them!
• standard-ish $\mathrm{\LaTeX}$ packages: algorithm2e, array, babel, calc, color, float, fontenc, framed, geometry, graphicx, hyperref, inputenc, mathdots, mathtools, multirow, stmaryrd, tablefootnote, units, varioref
• standard AMS-$\mathrm{\TeX}$ packages: amsbsy, amstext, amsthm
• not-so-standard packages (in my experience): animate, textcomp
• the main font is garamond, and you need the mathdesign package to use it; please follow the directions for the mathdesign package
• the mono font is beramono

#### Once you have all the necessary files, do the following.

• Place all files in the same folder.
• Copy the graphics archive to the same directory as the source file(s).
• Unpack the archive there, using either tar xfz graphics.tar.gz or some other appropriate tool
• execute on a command line pdflatex draft17, then bibtex draft17, then twice again pdflatex draf17;

• or, the way we do it:

• load draft17.lyx into LyX and select from the menu File, Export, PDF (pdflatex).
As long as you have all the necessary files, it should work with no error. If it complains, then you need to secure the file it complains it can’t find.

Example: (click to expand)
• Suppose you have placed draft17 (either .lyx or .tex) in the folder mat305.
• You should also place citations.bib and graphics.tar.gz in that folder.
• You unpack the archive as indicated above.
• The folder structure should now be as follows.
• mat305
• citations.bib
• draft17.tex or draft17.lyx
• graphics
• 3d_plotting
• 3d_mesh.png
• animations
• fleur_de_lis
If it isn’t, something is wrong. Start over, and maybe contact us using the nag button above.
