The definitive source of information about REVTeX 4 is the APS web page http://publish.aps.org/revtex4/. User queries should be directed to firstname.lastname@example.org. Manifest -------- Only the files under 'Essential files' are required to run REVTeX 4. Essential files --------------- revtex4.cls - The REVTeX 4 class file aps.rtx - APS specific REVTeX 4 customizations for Phys. Rev. rmp.rtx - APS specific REVTeX 4 customizations for Rev. Mod. Phys. 10pt.rtx - 10 point size class option file for REVTeX. 11pt.rtx - 11 point size class option file for REVTeX. 12pt.rtx - 12 point size class option file for REVTeX. apsrev.bst - A new custom-bib based BibTeX style file for use with REVTeX 4 for Phys. Rev. style citations. apsrmp.bst - For Rev. Mod. Physics (author/year) style citations revsymb.sty - A collection of common symbols for use outside of REVTeX. Documentation files ------------------- (located in /docs subdirectory) auguide.tex - Author's guide to REVTeX 4 (Note: There is a separate "APS Compuscript Guide for REVTeX 4" detailing restrictions for APS submissions) differ.tex - "Differences between REVTeX 3 and REVTeX 4" summary.tex - "REVTeX 4 Command and Options Summary" revbib.tex - A short introduction to using BibTeX with REVTeX 4 (Not available yet) docs.sty - Used by auguide.tex and differ.tex Sample files ------------ (located in /sample subdirectory) template.aps - A template for APS authors to follow apssamp.tex - A sample file showing how to achieve certain effects using REVTeX 4 fig_1.eps - sample figure for apssamp.tex fig_2.eps - sample wide figure for apssamp.tex apssamp.bib - sample BibTeX source file for apssamp.tex Source files ------------ (located in /src subdirectory) revtex4.dtx - The commented source file for revtex4.cls and revsymb.sty. revtex4.pdf - PDF documentation generated from .dtx file ltxgrid.dtx - The commented source file for the ltxgrid package ltxgrid.pdf - PDF documentation generated from .dtx file ltxutil.dtx - The commented source file for the ltxutil package ltxutil.pdf - PDF documentation generated from .dtx file ltxdocext.dtx - The commented source file for the ltxdocext package ltxdocext.pdf - PDF documentation generated from .dtx file textcase.dtx - The commented source file for the textcase package revtex4.ins - A docstrip (version 2.4 or higher) file for extracting revtex4.cls and revsymb.sty from the *.dtx files Not Included ------------ The following packages are required by REVTeX but are not included in this distribution. Please obtain from CTAN (Comprehensive TeX Archive Network), e.g. <http://www.ctan.org/>. These can also be downloaded from <http://publish.aps.org/revtex4/>. natbib.dtx - Version 7 or later needed 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 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 -------------------------- By implementing REVTeX as a native LaTeX2e document class, users can now 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. graphics.sty and graphicx.sty for figure inclusion - part of LaTeX2e's standard distribution. Installation ------------ To install REVTeX 4, put revtex4.cls, *.rtx, *.sty, and *.bst (files listed under 'Essential Files' above) somewhere in your TEXINPUTS path or whereever your TeX software looks for input files. Under the TDS, you should install them into $TEXMFLOCAL/tex/latex/revtex4. The *.bst files should go under $TEXMFLOCAL/bibtex/bst/revtex4. Run the appropriate update command (texhash, initexmf -u, etc.). Install required non-REVTeX packages (natbib and bm). Please consult the documentaton for your local TeX package for more information. MikTeX users should use version MikTeX 2.1. Credits ------- David Carlisle created the initial versions of REVTeX 4 under commission by the APS. Arthur Ogawa has extensively reworked those early versions and added much new functionality. Mark Doyle, APS Manager of Product Development coordinated the effort. The APS is the maintainer of REVTeX 4, and all bugs are our responsibility. Please e-mail complaints to email@example.com. Backwards compatibility ----------------------- The REVTeX 4 class file has been named revtex4.cls to distinguish it from its predecessors. If the class file is copied to revtex.cls, files created with earlier versions of REVTeX should still work. LaTeX2e requirements -------------------- REVTeX 4 requires LaTeX2e [1996/06/01]
