Presenting Diagrams

  • M. R. C. van Dongen
Part of the book series (XMEDIAPUBL)


This chapter is an introduction to drawing diagrams/pictures using the tikz package, which is built on top of pgf. Here pgf is a platformand format-independent macro package for creating graphics. The pgf package is smoothly integrated with TEX and LaTEX. As a result tikz also lets you incorporate text and mathematics in your diagrams. The tikz package also supports the beamer class, which is used for creating incremental computer presentations.
