Formatting Your Book in LaTeX

It is best to use the SIAM macro from the start to ensure all packages and fonts work seamlessly.

  • SIAM's macro: SIAMbook2019.cls (updated 4/30/19)
    • Any additional files used in our macro should be downloaded from CTAN or another LaTeX repository.
  • Using SIAM's Book Macros (PDF File)
  • Sample Files (zip file, updated 10/16/19)
    • It may be easiest to use these files as a framework for your manuscript.

We are now using the Times New Roman font with our books. Please use the following code in your manuscript:
\usepackage{times}
\usepackage[T1]{fontenc}
\renewcommand{\sfdefault}{phv}
\renewcommand{\ttdefault}{txtt}
\renewcommand\bfdefault{b}
