The definitive source of information about REVTeX 4 is the APS web page http://authors.aps.org/revtex4/. User queries should be directed to firstname.lastname@example.org. Manifest -------- All files in this release are contained within the compressed archive revtex4-1.zip. For installation instructions, see below. NOTE: The only files necessary for running REVTeX 4.1 are those under tex/latex/revtex and bibtex/bst/revtex, but it is a good idea to install the entire distribution, especially the documentation.

Please obtain from CTAN (Comprehensive TeX Archive Network), e.g. <http://www.ctan.org/>. Direct links to the necessary files can be found at <http://authors.aps.org/revtex4/>. natbib.dtx - Version 8.31a or later; found in latex/contrib/natbib on CTAN natbib.ins - LaTeX this to create natbib.sty and natbib documentation from natbib.dtx bm.dtx - Bold math style - part of (current!) standard LaTeX2e tools bm.sty - generated from bm.dtx by running tools.ins textcase.dtx - Found in latex/contrib/textcase on CTAN textcase.ins - LaTeX this to generate textcase.sty from textcase.dtx url.sty - Found in latex/contrib/misc on CTAN An up-to-date installation of AMS-LaTeX is also required for certain documentclass options. Version 2.0 or higher is needed. It is available from <http://www.ams.org/tex/>. Recommended styles and packages -------------------------- With REVTeX implemented as a native LaTeX2e document class, users can take advantage of many of the well-supported LaTeX2e packages available. Here are some that are particularly useful and recommended. longtable.sty for tables running to multiple pages - part of a standard LaTeX2e distribution. hyperref.sty for hyperlinking - should work well with REVTeX 4.1. graphics.sty and graphicx.sty for figure inclusion - part of LaTeX2e's standard distribution. Installation ------------ You already started the installation process by unzipping revtex4-1.zip. As you will have seen, it created a directory revtex4.1 containing this file README, the file DOWNLOAD, and the file revtex4-1-tds.zip, which contains the bulk of the installation. To install this software into a TDS-compliant TeX installation, like TeX Live, working as root, issue a shell command like unzip revtex4-1-tds.zip -d /usr/local/texlive/texmf-local/ where the destination for the unzipped files is, in this example, appropriate for a local modificaton of a sufficiently recent distribution of TeX Live. You may of course choose a different destination depending on your particular requirements. After installation, files will be located as per the Manifest above. Run the appropriate update command (mktexlsr, initexmf -u, etc.); under TeX Live that would be (as root) mktexlsr /usr/local/texlive/texmf-local Install required packages (AMS-LaTeX, natbib, textcase, and bm). Please consult the documentaton for your local TeX package for more information. MikTeX users should use a recent version (see http://miktex.org/) and consult the documentation there. There are several steps you will have to do. Please note that the steps given here may change with future versions of MikTeX, but the basic steps should be quite similar. 1) Create a texmf-local directory if needed. For example, you might create a directory such as C:\local\miktex\texmf-local. 2) Tell MikTeX where your texmf-local directory is. Find the MikTeX Options window and look for the "Roots" tab. If your texmf-local directory is not listed, click "Add" and add it. 3) Unzip the revtex4-1-tds.zip (part of the REVTeX distribtution) in your texmf-local directory. 4) Update the "File Name Database (FNDB)." This step is essential and it registers all of the files in your texmf-local directory with MikTeX. Do this by clicking on "Refresh FNDB" in the General tab of the MikTeX Options window. MikTex also comes with a package manager. This can be an easier way to maintain the packages installed on your system. However, please note that the packages available may not be the most current version of the packages. Credits ------- David Carlisle created the first draft of REVTeX 4; Arthur Ogawa has supported the TeX development since. Patrick Daly was so kind as to incorporate needed changes into natbib and custom-bib. All worked under commission from the APS. Mark Doyle, APS Assistant Director, Journal Information Systems coordinated the effort, which was partly underwritten by the American Institute of Physics. The APS is the maintainer of REVTeX, and all bugs are our responsibility. Please e-mail feedback to email@example.com. Backwards compatibility ----------------------- The REVTeX 4.1 class file has been named revtex4-1.cls to distinguish it from its predecessors. If the class file is copied to revtex4.cls, files created with earlier versions of REVTeX 4 should still work. LaTeX2e requirements -------------------- REVTeX 4 requires: LaTeX2e [1996/06/01], natbib [2009/11/07] textcase
