The tar file contains the LaTeX2e support for Astronomische Nachrichten (an).

The following files are part of the macro package

  readme.txt      This file
  w-art.cls       The document class file for journals at
                  WILEY-VCH Verlag GmbH \& Co. KGaA, Weinheim
  w-an.clo        The class option file for Astronomische Nachrichten (an)
  an-tpl.tex      A fill-in-form for a standard article with usage comments
                  (but see the section below on reference format) 
  an-tpl.pdf      Some more usage comments for AN
  adp-tma.tex     Examples of various features from \AmS-\LaTeX{}.
  w-thm.sty       Some predefined theorem environments (uses amsthm.sty)
  w-greek.sty     Style file for slanted and upright greek letters
  w-greek.tex     Example file for the usage of w-greek.sty
  empty.eps       A simple eps-file depicting a rectangle with diagonal lines
  an.pdf          Example file


Copy w-art.cls, w-an.clo, w-greek.sty and w-thm.sty
to a place where LaTeX can find them.


The file an-tpl.tex is a template for the file that you will create.
You should first run an-tpl.tex through LaTeX and read the usage
comments. Alternatively use acroread to read the precompiled
file an-tpl.pdf


You should include figures with the command \begin{figure} (not
\begin{vchfigure}) and \includegraphics The latter has the syntax

\includegraphics[bb=llx lly urx ury,angle=angle,
width=h_length,height=v_length, scale=factor,clip=true/false,

Example: \includegraphics[height=8cm,width=9cm,angle=0,bb=1 1 100

height: The height of the graphics (in any of the accepted TeX units)  
totalheight: The totalheight of the graphics in any of the accepted TeX
units.  width: The width of the graphics in any of the accepted TeX
units.  scale: Scale factor. Specifying scale=2 makes the graphics twice
as large as its natural size.  angle: Specifies the angle of rotation, in
degrees, with a counter-clockwise (anti-clockwise) rotation being
positive.  origin: Specifies what point to use for the rotation origin.
By default, the object is rotated about its reference point. origin=c
rotates the graphic about its center.  bb: BoundingBox. For example bb=10
20 100 200 specifies a BoundingBox with lowerleft corner at (10,20) and
upper right corner at (100,100).

Note that you can read off the proper bounding box simply by viewing
the postscript file with "ghostview" of "gv". The current position of
the cursor is usually displayed in bound box units (=1/72 of an inch
measured from the bottom left corner of the paper). If you want to
make your figure fit, just place your cursor at the bottom left corner
of your picture and at the top right corner and enter the numbers you
see in "gv/ghostview" as the cursor position after bb= ...  For the
width you can use width=\textwidth or a fraction thereof,
e.g. width=0.8\textwidth. To center the figure on the paper it may be
better to use the centerline command, i.e.:

\centerline{\includegraphics[width=\textwidth, height=2cm]{empty.eps}}
\caption{The usual figure environment. It ...}


In the template file, an-tpl.tex, references are numbered.  However, we
will use the "author (year)" system employed by most of the major
astronomical/physical journals (e.g., "(Falcke et al. 1999)" or 
"Falcke et al. (1999)" - list in the references as Falcke, H., et 
al. 1999, ApJ, vvv, ppp). Thus do NOT adopt the numbering and style format
of the template file.

You do not need to use the automatic referencing within the text.

For references to a conference presentation, e.g. by Smith et al., in the
text use
	Smith et al. (2003), 
and in the reference list put
	Smith, J., et al. 2003, these proceedings .


As filenames we suggest you use a combination of your first name, 
initial and filename, e.g.: FalckeH.tex,, ...

In the tex file, please label each figure and the \ref{label} 
command. As a label, please use the filename. 

Electronic materials should be named accordingly with the key word
"eonly", i.e.:

FalckeH-eonly1.mpg or

Refer to them via a footnote that contains the file name that will
later be converted to a web link. You may also include them at the end
on an extra page with a Figure caption after the references.
