A Short Introduction to LATEX

David J. Eck

Date: October 22, 2003


This paper is a very short introduction to the essentials of LATEX, a document-preparation system that is an alternative to typical word-processing programs. LATEX is particularly good at mathematical typesetting, but it has features that make it nice for almost any kind of writing. Most of the information in this paper is taken from A Guide to LATEX, by Helmut Kopka & Patrick W. Daly.
