This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

    Also rather subjective and without a definite answer (except if someone does a large-scale study). You might want to ask a more specific question. – Caramdir Aug 11 '10 at 19:51
  • The nice thing about this question is that someone has done a large-scale study, as can be seen by following the link. – Jonathan Fine Aug 11 '10 at 20:14

For papers on the arXiv (maths, physics and computer science mostly) there's a list of packages sorted by frequency of use.

The top twenty packages are:

  1. article
  2. graphicx
  3. amssymb
  4. amsmath
  5. revtex
  6. revtex4
  7. epsfig
  8. amsfonts
  9. bm
  10. latexsym
  11. amsart
  12. dcolumn
  13. amsthm
  14. graphics
  15. aastex
  16. amscd
  17. epsf
  18. color
  19. aa
  20. times
  • You could add that answer to the already existing question (tex.stackexchange.com/questions/553/…) as this one will probably be closed rather soon. – Caramdir Aug 11 '10 at 19:53
  • The two questions have very different answers, and so can't be duplicates of each other. – Jonathan Fine Aug 11 '10 at 20:23
