Sigurd Angenent's Lecturer Notes provide a masterful example of what you can do when you combine LaTeX with Octave (a matlab clone), XFig and psfrag. - PSFRAGX is a package which allows you to overlay latex symbols or text on an eps file. Here is an example and it's associated HOWTO file
- PSTRICKS is a package which allows you to use simplified
postscript commands to "draw" complex pictures while using LaTeX's math
fonts.
- Here is a
**pstricks**example which shows some of the capabilities of this package. - Another trig.tex PStricks example showing trig functions.
- Here is a sample file which shows how to use the hyperref package to make links in pdf files and the color package to add color: artex.tex. It requires 3dpdf.pdf and contpdf.pdf

- Beamer is the preferred method for creating a PDF (powerpoint like) slide show. You will need a laptop
and projector
*beamer*to use it effectively. Here are some examples- Simple example: BeamerTour.tex and BeamerTour.pdf

- Kyle's Thesis defense.pdf". Here are the sources for it: defense.zip".

- Posters: Use the a0poster or sciposter latex packages to create large posters. Here is another example myposter.tex. Confused about paper sizes. Look at papersizes.txt. The cheapest place to print a color poster in town is The College Library (Helen C. White) which charges $2.50 / ft^2 instead of the usual $8/ft^2.
