# LATEX hints for authors of the series Notes on Numerical Fluid Mechanics

If several authors contribute to the same book, each of them has to obey more rules than the single author of a book such that the result looks consistent. Enclosed you find a diskette containing the file notes.sty which you should copy to that place, where the other LATEX styles are. The first line of your document should thus read
\documentstyle[...times,notes]{vieweg}

The times option only changes the standard TEX fonts (Computer Modern) to Times Roman. If your TEX installation does not support this option you can omit this style. When using the times option, a PostScript printer is needed for printouts.

• In your preamble, after \documentstyle but before \begin{document} insert two lines to specify author and title of the contribution

\author{your name without address}
\title{title of the contribution}
\address{your address, lines separated with \\}

• the head is printed out with \maketitle.
• Type your manuscript as you were using standard article style, i.e. the highest order heading is section. Do not use chapters or unnumbered sections.
• If for your conveniency you are using self-defined commands, please notice:
• All commands should be defined via the \newcommand mechanism of LATEX, not only with \def. Otherwise different authors could use the same command word.
• All commands should be collected in a separate file, preferabely named as the contribution but with the extension .def, and \included in the preamble.
I hope these hints will help you producing your contribution in an easy way. If questions remain, feel free to contact your volume editor.
