# drawing commutative diagram

I solved the problem I mentioned below, thank you very much for your suggestions.

I want to use the diagram to appear in the article. I want to set the size according to the article in this example. I do not know whether I could express myself correctly. Thank you for all suggestions.

Could you help me for drawing the following diagram ?

• What have you tried so far? Please show us the code ... Nov 21, 2018 at 13:19
• I'd suggest you to read Prof. van Duck's TUGBoat article, (which was recently made publicly available) in which he thoroughly explains the basics of TikZ styles ans gives an example of a diagram. With that article you have the necessary tools to create the diagram you're asking us to do for you. Nov 21, 2018 at 13:35
• Thanks for your suggestion, but I cannot draw it immediately and I need this diagram as soon as possible. I am not good drawing diagram at latex and do not have enough time. I am trying to conclude my paper in a few days. Nov 21, 2018 at 13:52
• @FatmaErolKaynarca Everyone here's got things to do. People who answer questions here do it as a hobby, not as a job, so it's unlikely that someone will rush into drawing the complete diagram for you, simply because that's your job. Perhaps someone with enough free time will do all of it, perhaps they'll give you a start as Diaa did, and perhaps they will vote to close your question as "too broad" or something like that. That's why "do-it-for-me" questions are usually not very well received. Nov 21, 2018 at 15:20
• @PhelypeOleinik I'm sorry to misunderstand myself. I know the people here are doing it to help someone. I didn't want to do my own job completely. Diaa's example was a good example what I wanted to do. I can't use the latex as well as you. What I want is an example that I can apply to my diagram. I'm sorry for taking your time...

## Edit

I am not the TikZpert here in the slightest, but I spent some time converting your hand drawing into a simple code. Please, study it well since do-it-for-me questions are the most hated ones here :).
