Thanks everybody for helping. For those who ask about \mathscr I found it on one of the tutorials available online (pag 78 of PDF, pag 64 in the text): http://www.ctan.org/texarchive/info/lshort/english/lshort.pdf Does anybody know how to solve the other display problem I wrote about: e^{i [( k _{lx}  \, k _{{l'} x}^*) is displayed with the subscript letters not aligned (at different levels). So the first "k" has the subscript "lx" at a higher position than the subscript "l'x" of the second "k". Is that solvable, or it has to do with the fact that the second "k" has also the superscript "*" (and the symbol ') and Latex automatically moves down the subscript?

You can still see a difference: this is due to the prime on the l; if you want to adjust that, you could do it by adding an invisible strut (\rule} after the first l; but that's real fudgy! If the manuscript is for professional publishing, better leave that to the printer! ccn.  ................................................................. Prof.Dr. Cornelius C.

Hi Ricardo, since you say you are new to LaTeX, I must commend you on a certain amount of bravery, tackling an already pretty advanced task. You made about 4 different errors simultaneously. That is not so unusal for a first draft; but obviously you had trouble understanding the significance of the various error messages (in your case coming from 3 different programs: TeX, LaTeX and the amsmath package), and that is also quite common in the beginning. So here is the most important advice:  Comment out as much as possible (literally even everything  between the '\begin{document}' and the '\end{document}')  until you get the source running errorfree, and then work  your way up from there! I have taken your example and commented all your errors; cf. the attachment. I hope you understand everything now; if not, you should read both the LaTeX and the AmsMath documentation. The code I sent back should run errorfree; if it doesn't, there is an installation problem, get back to this list in that case. Here are a few more comments: (i) the command \mathscr is unkown to TeX, LaTeX and amsmath (and to me, by the way). I have replaced it by \textsc just to show you what's wrong, (ii) 'letterpaper' should be the default (unless you have a very special installation), so that is superfluous (but innocuous), (iii) the sitation is similar for the 'amsfonts' package: you need that only when you need rather special math fonts (usually not for regular physics texts), (iv) the most nontrivial error is the mix of generic LaTeX math constructions and those of amsmath. These are often pretty tricky to find. You should by all means at least browse through the amsmath users's guide, available, e.g., from ftp://ftp.ams.org/pub/tex/doc/amsmath/amsldoc.pdf I hope this is of some help to you. Regards, ccn.

Thanks a lot for your help, the outcome looks good now! I have just another quick question. In the output file the expression: e^{i [( k _{lx}  \, k _{{l'} x}^*)=20 is displayed with the subscript letters not aligned (at different levels). So the first "k" has the subscript "lx" at a higher position than the subscript "l'x" pf the second "k". Is that solvable, or it has to do with the fact that the second "k" as also the superscript "*" and Latex automatically moves down the subscript? Thanks again.

As Arnout already pointed out, multipage and *true* eps don't go together. Some programs will create multipage PS and *claim* they are eps. They are not. That said, try using ghostview/ghostscript. Under gsview32, the File menu offers an Extract option. I believe this allows you to create compliant eps as you extract from PS. I have not verified this, however. I do know that it allows you to get a single page from multipage documents. I have always then converted to eps using epswrite. I suspect you can do the conversion to singlepage and eps directly with epswrite simply by selecting only one page to write.

Thanks Hans, and Alan too. I found the problem: miktex.ini was removed when I used the Update Wizard to upgrade from 2.2. to 2.4. I know for certain I didn't remove it myself. My local ini file prevented more serious error messages to appear. Seems obvious now, but I would never have guessed it was this particular file that was missing if I hadn't verified that tex.pro did exist. Has anyone else had this problem? Anyway, I found the latest version of miktex.ini from the MiKTeX CVS repository, and everything looks to be working fine (knock on wood), Again, thanks.
