This page describes the LaTeX packages developed and mantained

by F. Bosisio at the "Politecnico di Milano", Italy.

For informations on the whole LaTeX packages see any
**CTAN** archive, like
http://www.tex.ac.uk

At now the available packages are

- mathenv
- Extended and more powerful math-environments
- mathcmd
- Extended math-mode commands
- sobolev
- Commands to deal with Sobolev and Hilbert spaces
- graphfig
- Simple and powerful way of using graphics files inside figures
- dblfont
- An easy way to define blackboard-bold letters
- accenti
- This package is only available here and
*not*in the CTAN archive, since its only aim is to simplify the usage of accents in the Italian language.

This package provides some environments and commands which I found very useful in math-mode.

The new math environments are used to make multi-line formulas and systems
of equations, both numbered or unnumbered.
Also the standard *equation* environment may be redefined so that
it has the same optional argument as the other ones (this optional argument
is simply a label for cross-referencies).

Also a very simple way of making adjustable-size matching braces is available.

For more informations, see the on-line documentation or download the documentation file.

The source file is mathenv.dtx, which also
deserves as an installation driver: simply run it through LaTeX in order
to get the corresponding mathenv.sty file
and also the documentation driver `mathenv.drv` (which you
must run throught LaTeX to get the documentation).

This package provides some commands which I found very useful in math-mode.

The new commands include derivatives, vectors operators, arrow-limits, integrals and sums.

For more informations, see the on-line documentation or download the documentation file.

The source file is mathcmd.dtx, which also
deserves as an installation driver: simply run it through LaTeX in order
to get the corresponding mathcmd.sty file
and also the documentation driver `mathcmd.drv` (which you
must run throught LaTeX to get the documentation).

This package provides some commands which I found very useful when dealing with higher Mathematics that envolves the use of Hilbert and Sobolev spaces.

The new commands include norm, semi-norm, scalar products, crochet symbols, besides the various Sobolev spaces.

For more informations, see the on-line documentation or download the documentation file.

The source file is sobolev.dtx, which also
deserves as an installation driver: simply run it through LaTeX in order
to get the corresponding sobolev.sty file
and also the documentation driver `sobolev.drv` (which you
must run throught LaTeX to get the documentation).

This package provides some very powerful commands to deal with figures and graphics files in LaTeX.

It provides a new `Figure` environment and a
`\graphfile` command: the combined use of these authomatically
produce a correct centering of the graph(s) with respect to the page.
Moreover, subfigures can be handled in the same way and hard-to-discover
errors (such as a `\label` preceding a `\caption`)
are eliminated.

For more informations, see the on-line documentation or download the documentation file.

The source file is graphfig.dtx, which also
deserves as an installation driver: simply run it through LaTeX in order
to get the corresponding graphfig.sty file
and also the documentation driver `graphfig.drv` (which you
must run throught LaTeX to get the documentation).

This package provides a simple way to define new commands whose goal is to print a letter in the blackboard-bold font.

For more informations, see the documentation file.

The source file is dblfont.dtx, which also
deserves as an installation driver: simply run it through LaTeX in order
to get the corresponding dblfont.sty file
and also the documentation driver `dblfont.drv` (which you
must run throught LaTeX to get the documentation).

This package provides a shorter version of the accents-making commands
of LaTeX.
They were explicitly build for Italian language, so that only the accents
that occurr in it are handled (the standard LaTeX accents commands still
remains available, though): for this reason this was *not* made a
standard package available throught CTAN archives.

Nevertheless, I let it here since italian writers may find it useful, expecially if they work with an italian keyboard (i.e. one without a key for the backquote character). In such a case, a suitable option is given to let LaTeX understand the extended ASCII characters that represents accented letters: however, if you use it remember that this may fail on some systems (e.g. when copying the file on a UNIX machine).

For more informations, see the documentation file.

The source file is accenti.dtx, which also
deserves as an installation driver: simply run it through LaTeX in order
to get the corresponding accenti.sty file
and also the documentation driver `accenti.drv` (which you
must run throught LaTeX to get the documentation).
