77In the beginning, there was $\pi$:
78
79\begin{equation}
80   e^{\pi i} + 1 = 0  \label{eqn_pi}
81\end{equation}
82A \gls{computer} could compute $\pi$ all day long. In fact, subsets of digits
83of $\pi$'s decimal approximation would make a good source for psuedo-random
84vectors, \gls{rvec} .

110This would be a good place for some figures and tables.

112Some notes on figures and photographs\ldots
113
114\begin{itemize}
115\item A well-prepared PDF should be
116  \begin{enumerate}
117    \item Of reasonable size, {\it i.e.} photos cropped and compressed.
118    \item Scalable, to allow enlargment of text and drawings.
119  \end{enumerate} 
120\item Photos must be bit maps, and so are not scaleable by definition. TIFF and
121BMP are uncompressed formats, while JPEG is compressed. Most photos can be
122compressed without losing their illustrative value.
123\item Drawings that you make should be scalable vector graphics, \emph{not} 
124bit maps. Some scalable vector file formats are: EPS, SVG, PNG, WMF. These can
125all be converted into PNG or PDF, that pdflatex recognizes. Your drawing
126package probably can export to one of these formats directly. Otherwise, a
127common procedure is to print-to-file through a Postscript printer driver to
128create a PS file, then convert that to EPS (encapsulated PS, which has a
129bounding box to describe its exact size rather than a whole page).
130Programs such as GSView (a Ghostscript GUI) can create both EPS and PDF from
131PS files. Appendix~\ref{AppendixA} shows how to generate properly sized Matlab
132plots and save them as PDF.
133\item It's important to crop your photos and draw your figures to the size that
134you want to appear in your thesis. Scaling photos with the
135includegraphics command will cause loss of resolution. And scaling down
136drawings may cause any text annotations to become too small.
137\end{itemize}

139For more information on \LaTeX\, see the uWaterloo Skills for the
140Academic Workplace \href{https://uwaterloo.ca/information-systems-technology/services/electronic-thesis-preparation-and-submission-support/ethesis-guide/creating-pdf-version-your-thesis/creating-pdf-files-using-latex/latex-ethesis-and-large-documents}{course notes}.
141\footnote{
142Note that while it is possible to include hyperlinks to external documents,
143it is not wise to do so, since anything you can't control may change over time.
144It \emph{would} be appropriate and necessary to provide external links to
145additional resources for a multimedia ``enhanced'' thesis.
146But also note that if the \package{hyperref} package is not included,
147as for the print-optimized option in this thesis template, any \cmmd{href} 
148commands in your logical document are no longer defined.
149A work-around employed by this thesis template is to define a dummy
150\cmmd{href} command (which does nothing) in the preamble of the document,
151before the \package{hyperref} package is included.
152The dummy definition is then redifined by the
153\package{hyperref} package when it is included.

156The classic book by Leslie Lamport \cite{lamport.book}, author of \LaTeX , is
157worth a look too, and the many available add-on packages are described by
158Goossens \textit{et al} \cite{goossens.book}.

189\section{Using the GUI}
190Properties of Matab plots can be adjusted from the plot window via a graphical
191interface. Under the Desktop menu in the Figure window, select the Property
192Editor. You may also want to check the Plot Browser and Figure Palette for
193more tools. To adjust properties of the axes, look under the Edit menu and
194select Axes Properties.
195
196To set the figure size and to save as PDF or other file formats, click the
197Export Setup button in the figure Property Editor.
198
199\section{From the Command Line} 
200All figure properties can also be manipulated from the command line. Here's an
201example:
202\begin{verbatim}
203x=[0:0.1:pi];
204hold on % Plot multiple traces on one figure
205plot(x,sin(x))
206plot(x,cos(x),'--r')
207plot(x,tan(x),'.-g')
208title('Some Trig Functions Over 0 to \pi') % Note LaTeX markup!
209legend('{\it sin}(x)','{\it cos}(x)','{\it tan}(x)')
210hold off
211set(gca,'Ylim',[-3 3]) % Adjust Y limits of "current axes"
212set(gcf,'Units','inches') % Set figure size units of "current figure"
213set(gcf,'Position',[0,0,6,4]) % Set figure width (6 in.) and height (4 in.)
214cd n:\thesis\plots % Select where to save
215print -dpdf plot.pdf % Save as PDF
216\end{verbatim}
