# document class for l'IHÉS Journal

Let me just mention that I don't know much about Latex, so please be patient with me.

I noticed that the .cls file uses for the journal "Publications Mathématiques de l'IHÉS" is svjour.cls. So I just used this example

\documentclass[publmath]{svjour}

\usepackage{publmath}

\begin{document}


But I get the following error: l.93 ... valid journal specified in option list}{}.

The svjour.cls class does not provide a publmath class option. You need to provide a class option that exists, details of which are available under section 2 Initializing the class in the svjour user's guide (p 2-3).
Moreover, you'll have to add the publmath package to your repertoire, most likely by storing it in your texmf-local folder. See How do I update my TeX distribution?
• @user11112: If you put publmath.sty and svpublmath.clo in the same folder as your working file, then things should work, and it seems like you can use \documentclass[publmath]{svjour}, since that option includes svpublmath.clo. Report back. – Werner Sep 20 '13 at 23:38
