mem­oir – Type­set fic­tion, non-fic­tion and math­e­mat­i­cal books

The mem­oir class is for type­set­ting po­etry, fic­tion, non-fic­tion, and math­e­mat­i­cal works.

Per­mis­si­ble doc­u­ment ‘base’ font sizes range from 9 to 60pt. There is a range of page-styles and well over a dozen chap­ter-styles to choose from, as well as meth­ods for spec­i­fy­ing your own lay­outs and de­signs. The class also pro­vides the func­tion­al­ity of over thirty of the more pop­u­lar pack­ages, thus sim­pli­fy­ing doc­u­ment sources.

The class au­to­mat­i­cally loads an as­so­ci­ated patch file mem­patch; the patch file may be up­dated from time to time, be­tween re­leases of the class it­self. (The patch file stays around even when there are no ex­tant patches.)

Users who wish to use the hy­per­ref pack­age, in a doc­u­ment writ­ten with the mem­oir class, should also use the memh­fixc pack­age (part of this bun­dle). Note, how­ever, that any cur­rent ver­sion of hy­per­ref ac­tu­ally loads the pack­age au­to­mat­i­cally if it de­tects that it is run­ning un­der mem­oir.
