I would like to find a latex style that is close to the one used in books like the followings:

Does anybody know a similar layout format?


At least the last book in your list is written with LaTeX:

boris@bilbo:~$ pdfinfo mcs.pdf 
Creator:        LaTeX with hyperref package
Producer:       pdfTeX-1.40.10; modified using iText 2.1.7 by 1T3XT
CreationDate:   Mon Jun  4 15:49:40 2012
ModDate:        Mon Jun  4 15:49:53 2012
Tagged:         no
Pages:          828
Encrypted:      yes (print:yes copy:yes change:yes addNotes:yes)
Page size:      612 x 792 pts (letter)
File size:      9388308 bytes
Optimized:      no
PDF version:    1.4

I suggest you write to the authors and ask, which packages they used :)


The copyright page for the Fitting book says it was “prepared from the author’s LaTeX files using Springer’s svwidecm style file.” Springer’s site does not have that style file, though they offer others intended for their authors’ drafts here.

As Boris points out, the PDF metadata for the Lehman et al. book just says it was created by “LaTeX with hyperref package”, but it being CC-licensed you should be able to contact the authors and get the information from them.


From the look of the last book, the authors used the times package, but their summation signs are taken from the default Computer Modern set.
