web_as_tool_for_physicists

This figure is available in a variety of formats, each of which has advantages and disadvantages, depending on how you intend to use the figure.

Encapsulated Postscript (eps)
This is probably the best format if you intend to embed this figure in a document such as a TEX paper.
Plain Postscript (ps)
This is probably the best format if you intend to print the figure.
GIF
This is probably the best format if you intend to embed the figure in a web page (HTML document).
JPEG
This is a format similar to GIF, and can be used to embed figures in web documents. JPEG figures may take less space than GIF figures, (especially for "real-world" images such as photographs) however support for JPEG is much less ubiqutous than for GIF.

Warnings

The figures are stored in encapsulated postscript. Accessing other formats may take up to a minute as the figure must be converted to the requested format.

Some of the postscript figures are very large and may take a long time to send over the network.
