An example Latex file for an MPhys project is report.tex. This can be compiled using latex report.tex. This creates a '.dvi' file that can be viewed using xdvi report.dvi. The dvi dile can be converted into a postscript file using dvips report.dvi. The postscript file is converted into a 'pdf' using ps2pdf report.ps.
