PICNodes - Simple package to replace a text in imported PostScript figures by PSTricks nodes. This approach able to make sign in PS figures from TeX, make connections between marked points of different figures and other document material. And make labels under connections.



SEMINAR1.0The best package for making slides.

FEYNMFExcellent package for Feynmann diagrams. It uses MetaFont or MetaPost to make job.
Note:
BaKoMa TeX supports this package via MetaPost. So, activate it via: \usepackage{feynmp}. In addition, there is small style (autopost.sty) that automatically runs MetaPost at end of writing every MetaPost output file. To use it say:
\usepackage{feynmp,autopost}

AXODRAWSimple package for Feynmann diagrams It takes output quality comparable with FeynMF, because it uses PostScript to draw diagram elements. However, it is extremly simple.
