Figures and tables

The figure environment is usually used for the presentation of diagrams and pictures. Tabular information should be packaged up using the table environment. Both figures and tables require titles. These are produced by the \caption command. Note that figures and tables are never split across a page, they are said to ``float''. Figure was produced using the picture environment

while Table was produced using the tabular environment which allows you to align text within boxed columns. The source used to produce Table is as follows:


\begin{tabular}{|l|l|} \hline\hline
 {\em Formatted }  &   {\em Unformatted} \\  \hline\hline
$A \rightarrow B$  &   \verb+$A \rightarrow B$+ \\  \hline
$ \lambda ((x)b)$  &   \verb+$ \lambda((x)b)$+ \\  \hline
$ \neg A $         &   \verb+$\neg A$+ \\  \hline
$ A \vee B$        &   \verb+$A \vee B$+ \\  \hline
$ A \wedge B$      &   \verb+$A \wedge B$+ \\  \hline
\caption{\label{formulas} Example table}
1.3The references to Table were produced by the \ref command, for example:


      The references to Table~\ref{formulas} were produced by the
      \verb+\ref+ command, for example:
1.3The \ref command enables relative, as compared to absolute, referencing. A \ref command takes a key as its argument. The point of reference, the table in this case, is indicated by a corresponding \label command which appears within the table environment. For more details on the tabular and picture environments see the manual.
