A brief and non-exhaustive list of software NSE has access to. Please note that some of these are export controlled software and require proper permissions. If you need access to them, just ask. (OSU VPN, Access network drive)

- Fantastic software for typing technical documents. A local favorite in regards to editing GUI’s is Texmaker.
When you are feeling collaborative (or are forced to for course work) and still want to use LaTeX, ShareLaTeX and Overleaf are great resources. This year, the two joined forces so eventually they may(?) be one in the same.
- Basic style file:
- Here is a basic style file that is used to format a LaTeX file.
- Doug Woods has been kind enough to supply a LaTeX Demo for new users to learn tex.
- MS Thesis and PhD Dissertation
- You can use his MS Thesis in LaTeX as a template. Execute pdflatex on MS_Thesis.tex to generate the pdf.
- For the PhD Dissertation in LaTeX example, you may need to add “-shell-escape” command in your typesetter. It is set up to generate pdf files for each figure in your document so they do not need to be generated every single typeset (saving a lot of time). To obtain the “TABLE OF CONTENTS (Continued)”, “LIST OF FIGURES (Continued)”, and “LIST OF TABLES (Continued)” for each subsequent page, you must manually add the commands “\contheading”, “\contlotheading”, and “\contlofheading” to the Dissertation.toc, Dissertation.lot, and Dissertation.lof files, respectively. You must add them after a line item (in Dissertation.toc/lot/lof) that appears on a page (in the typeset document) that does not have the proper heading. Another trick to know is that subsequent typesetting resets these heading commands so you must add them again for the final typeset.
- Graphics in LaTeX
- Here are some example graphics that are generated inside the document. This can be a very convenient way to displaying results because it is easy to reformat the graphics without having to regenerate them inside of Matlab.
- A tool to create technical presentations that is based on LaTeX.
- If you want to get into beamer, feel free to check out this reference and the example that Doug Woods has provided.
- Bibliography manager. It was developed to be used in sync with LaTeX.
- A new(er) piece of software that definitely seems interesting!
- Your one-stop-shop for version control. Students can obtain a paid, premium account for free through GitHub’s education program.
- The learning curve for using Git effectively can be a little daunting. Thankfully, GitHub has free training. Myself (Tony) and a few others took the GitHub for Developer’s training and it is a game changer.
There are countless text editors out there. It’s really just finding which one works best for you. Here are a few of our (the admins) favorites.
- Open source. Developed and maintained by GitHub. It really shines if you start using GitHub…
- Used for local edits.
- Can be used for local or remote editing. Native to most command line settings.
- Really great to use once you learn how to use it. But it does have a fairly steep learning curve.
- A standard command line based editor.
