The memoir class

Peter Wilson


The memoir class is essentially the book and report classes with lots of bells and whistles as it includes the functions of over 30 popularly used packages. It can also simulate the appearance of article-class documents and provides a basis for producing the typewritten-like manuscripts which some publishers ask for.

Peter Wilson (PhD) first started using LaTeX soon after it became available for creating camera-ready copy for ISO International Standards, plus internal company reports, and conference and journal submissions, and one book. He has written two LaTeX classes, something over 20 packages, and two series of fonts using Metafont. His is a past Editor-in-Chief of IEEE Computer Graphics and Applications (which accepted LaTeX manuscripts). He says, "Having worked long and hard in the UK and US in industry, government and academia I am now retired." He can be reached at
