How to scribe for 15-859(E): Advanced Algortithms

  1. Take complete notes for the class. Note the lecture number.
  2. Download advalgos.sty, advalgos.bib and template.tex. You might also want example-figure.pdf. Put them all in the same directory.
  3. Rename template.tex as lectureXX.tex, where XX is the number of the lecture (01, 02, ..., 09, 10, 11, ..., etc.).
  4. (Main step.) Edit the lectureXX.tex file so as to include your scribe notes. Set the lecture number, title, and scribe name in the first few lines, use macros appearing in lpsdp.sty as appropriate. Use LaTex best practices! Include at least one figure.
  5. If necessary, add to (but don't subtract from) advalgos.bib.
  6. Produce your pdf by bibtexing and by pdflatexing. The output file will be lectureXX.pdf.
  7. Email the following files to Anupam: lectureXX.tex, lectureXX.pdf, figure file(s), and advalgos.bib (iff you added to it).
  8. The deadline is four calendar days after the lecture.
