When it comes to typesetting scientific texts in the fields of mathematics, sciences and computer science, the typesetting system LaTeX has become a de facto standard. It is specially designed for typesetting mathematical formulas and stands out due to the excellent typeface output that it creates. Therefore, it is used by most scientific publishers for book typesetting.
I have extensive knowledge in using the typesetting program LaTeX. I obtained this knowledge mainly during my time as a LaTeX Consultant at the Max Planck Institute for Mathematics in the Sciences. While typesetting more than a dozen books as well as various articles and master theses, I was able to expand my knowledge even further. Thus, I’m also familiar with more recent packages, such as packages for typesetting structural formulas in Chemistry and enhanced packages for text layout and font selection. Based on my profound experience, I can also familiarize myself easily with packages that were just developed.

Typesetting and Coaching
It would be a pleasure to me to assist and advise you on formatting your texts with LaTeX. This applies to textbooks as well as to master and bachelor theses and articles. I can develop style files, create an index or multiple index registers and bibliographies, or finalize the formatting of your text. Even when more complex error messages occur, I can give you advice.
I offer LaTeX training at different levels: courses for beginners, refresher courses or courses for experienced users on the handling of BibTeX, the use of graphic packages or the creation of style and class files. The courses are held either in German or English.
