LaTeX Resources


LaTeX is a programatic typesetting system, or as the LaTeX web site puts it: "a document preparation system".

LaTeX is the de-facto typesetting system used by many technical and scientific publishers.

LaTeX is a language which for an author new to it adds to the burden of writing her paper, but the benefits are worth it. As a language it is most akin to a markup language like XML.

LaTeX's primary strengths are:

  • High quality typesetting, especially mathematical expressions.
  • Modular, customizable, and able to refactor into reusable templates.
  • Facile in separating the publisher's concerns from the author's.
  • Good documentation
  • Good editing tools
