Summary: Including Mathematica
Graphics in LATEX

I apply MATHEMATICA to topics in the natural sciences and humanities, and I have written software to produce
LATEX coded documents from the output of MATHEMATICA sessions [1, 2]. Several of my papers on molecular structure
include figures that were constructed by MATHEMATICA graphics. Fig. 1 and nearly 30 similar diagrams are in a recent
paper on nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) that I wrote with Istv´an Pelczer . I had to start using Release 7 of
H t1 2 t1 2 1 2 J 1 3 J
180 ° 90°
C t1 2 t1 2 1 2 J 1 3 J FID

MATHEMATICA to complete this NMR work. The graphics input/output of Releases 6 and 7 is backward incompatible
with the prior Release 5.2 and all the earlier versions. Now, the Export command can be used to write PDF files that
represent the graphics, in place of the Display command that used psfix to write POSTSCRIPT files previously.
The vendor of MATHEMATICA now reports new commands and the hundreds of options that qualify their usage in
