Doing some research in physics I have come across nicelly formated LaTeX document which can be found here: http://arxiv.org/pdf/1303.5621v1.pdf

What could be minimal LaTeX document to reproduce such formatting? The properties which I do like are:

  • Choice of font
  • Picked margin sizes
  • Line spacing
  • Title nummeration with Greek numbers
  • Indentation of parragraphs
  • The Title Font is the usual cmss obtained with \sffamily or \textsf{}, in boldface. The default one for the text is the cmr, you don't need to change anything to use it with LaTeX. Also for the Greek letters.

You can download the source as for most documents on arxiv:


  • It seems that uploaded sorce archive is broken. Does it open well on your computer? Jan 3, 2015 at 14:52
  • It's not broken for me, but it is mis-named. Rename the downloaded file to something with a .tar.gz extension, and it will open with gunzip and tar on a Unix system, or with 7-Zip on a Windows system. Jan 3, 2015 at 15:29
