Email or call for price.

When TeX was originally developed, graphics capabilities were not a major concern. As a result TeX itself provides only basic graphics support, and while the introduction of LaTeX improved matters, something more was needed. PSTricks addresses this by providing a very wide range of graphics facilities - from simple lines and curves, to 3D images, trees, knots, and charts, etc., with support for transformations, overlays and more - to form a complete graphics environment.

This book is a comprehenseive reference guide to PSTricks. It contains hundreds of examples (64 pages in colour), with the source code available online.

Intended audience
-Mathematicians, engineers, scientists, statisticians & economists
-Graphic artists
-College staff and students
-Book and journal publishers
