This is the advanced example employing L TEX to produce an AIAA technical conference paper. Please read the Known Problems in the Users Manual before attempting to use this example as a template. Fundamental topics are covered in the bare-bones template. A

For detailed AIAA layout and style guidelines, please refer to the AIAA L TEX Package Users Manual, aiaa.pdf.

which is located at www.ctan.org. This package does not gracefully handle the AIAA class’ submit option. 2And this is an example of a dropped capital letter at the beginning of a paragraph using the dropping package. This package is a bit less reﬁned than the lettrine package, but some authors may already have A

it around if they used the old (unoﬃcial) L TEX AIAA distribution. This package accommodates the AIAA class’ submit option.
In an eﬀort to more tightly integrate text and image, the wrapfig package is employed. This package works by modifying paragraph shape to accommodate a ﬁgure (or a table or other items). Typically one inserts its wrapfigure or wraptable environment just before the paragraph in which it is to be placed. Also speciﬁed is the width of the item to be inserted and the placement, for example, left or right side. (This package does not provide for center placement.) The rest of this paragraph is ﬁller so that the wrapfigure example will be placed in this paragraph. Documentation of the wrapfigure package is available at the end of the style A

Tables with footnotes, such as table 1 on page 4, can be coded using the threeparttable package. Note: This table was purposely placed on another page through the use of the ∗ Job

[p] placement speciﬁer to demonstrate the automated page reference mechanism provided by the varioref package. Of course, one would normally have the table integrated into the text that describes it. Equation (1) is serving as a demonstration of the nomenclature package. Ji · ∆xi+1 = −f i

The same can be said for Eq. (2) that uses α to add another Greek letter to the mix. F = mα

(2)

The nomencl package is fed entries with the \nomenclature command. These entries are then collected and sorted using makeindex. The optional sorting argument to the \nomenclature command uses a key of ‘b’ for subscripts, ‘g’ for Greek symbols, ‘c’ for conventions, and ‘t’ for superscripts. When many ﬁgures share a similar style and beg to be compared to one another, the subfigmat and subfigure packages can be used to create a matrix of subﬁgures as shown by ﬁgure 2 on the next page. These are called “small multiples” by Tufte.?

This had been a brief example of some of the more advanced options available for L TEX. Please see the documentation for each package for extended discussion or usage.
