# How to add an author name or copyright symbol on each page in memoir class?

I am using the memoir document class to write my first book in calculus. How I can display my name, for example, on each page?

The memoir document class provides a means to typeset your own headers and footers using a combination of

\makepagestyle{<style>}
\makeevenfoot{<style>}{<left>}{<center>}{<right>}% Even page footer
\makeoddfoot{<style>}{<left>}{<center>}{<right>}% Odd page footer


In the above, you define the style <style>. Consequently, if you want to typeset the author name (and a copyright symbol) in the outer footer, with the page number still in the footer centre, you could use

\documentclass{memoir}% http://ctan.org/pkg/memoir
...
\makepagestyle{mystyle}% Define 'mystyle' page style
\makeevenfoot{mystyle}{\textcopyright\ Author name}{\thepage}{}% Even page footer
\makeoddfoot{mystyle}{}{\thepage}{\textcopyright\ Author name}% Odd page footer
\pagestyle{mystyle}% Set page style to 'mystyle'
\begin{document}
...
\end{document}


The copyright symbol in LaTeX is obtained via \copyright or \textcopyright. Of course, you can modify the design of both the header and footer to your liking.
