# The rigidnotation LaTeX package

This package provides LaTeX macros to easily and concisely typeset vectors and matrices in a flexible way such as to follow the RIGID notation convention. The package enables the user to define custom commands that can then be used in any math-mode environment to efficiently and rigorously typeset the notational elements commonly used in robotics research (and many other fields) for position vectors, rotation matrices, pose matrices, etc.

## Documentation

This package is available on CTAN, and a PDF manual is accessible here.

## Local Installation

If you want to install the package manually on your local computer, you can follow the steps outlined below.

- Run
`kpsewhich -var-value TEXMFHOME`

to get the path to your TeX package home.

`$TEXHOME`

,- Run
`mkdir -p $TEXHOME/tex/latex/rigidnotation/`

to create a directory for this package. - Run
`tex rigidnotation.ins`

to generate the`rigidnotation.sty`

macro file. - Run
`cp rigidnotation.sty $TEXHOME/tex/latex/rigidnotation/`

to install the package. - Run
`pdflatex -interaction=nonstopmode rigidnotation.dtx`

to build the documentation. - Run
`texhash $TEXHOME`

to update the LaTeX package tree.

## Requirements

This package depends on mathtools and xparse packages, both of which are widely used.
