A reference as well as a tutorial, this tome provides users with the information to programmatically create high-quality graphics with TeX and LaTeX software and the enhanced PSTricks graphic package as well as hundreds of examples with ready-to-run code for hardcopy or PDF output. From how to draw simple lines on curves to creating three-dimensional images, trees, knots, and charts and adding color gradients and shadows, this manual details how to create graphics via programming rather than interactive drawing. A survey of the realm of LaTeX graphic packages is also included, along with methods for incorporating high-quality graphics in LaTeX documents.

Herbert Voss studied electrical engineering in Hanover and Berlin, and has a Doctorate of Engineering in Power Electronics. He has been a high-school teacher of mathematics, physics and computer science, and a lecturer at the Free University of Berlin. For several years he has been heavily involved in maintaining the PSTricks suite of tools for producing very high quality PostSctript graphics within LaTeX.
