This is the TeX showcase, edited by Gerben Wierda . It contains examples of what you can do with TeX, the typesetting engine from Donald Knuth, world famous mathematician, computer scientist and above all well known for TeX. I will try to keep this showcase small. For remarks on submissions, see at the end of this document.
LaTeX is a word processing (or, more accurately, a typesetting) program. It typesets a file of text using the TeX program and the LaTeX Macro package for TeX. It does this by processing an input file containing the text of a document with interspersed commands that describe how the text should be formatted. Unike many word processing programs, which concentrate on formatting material on the page (often called WYSIWYG, for "what you see is what you get"), LaTeX concentrates on "content." LaTeX is a Generalized Mark-up Language macro package for the TeX typesetting program.
Psycholinguistics or psychology of language is the study of the psychological and neurobiological factors that enable humans to acquire, use, comprehend and produce language . Initial forays into psycholinguistics were largely philosophical ventures, due mainly to a lack of cohesive data on how the human brain functioned. Modern research makes use of biology , neuroscience , cognitive science , linguistics , and information theory to study how the brain processes language.
In the field of artificial intelligence , the most difficult problems are informally known as AI-complete or AI-hard , implying that the difficulty of these computational problems is equivalent to solving the central artificial intelligence problem—making computers as intelligent as people, or strong AI . [ 1 ] To call a problem AI-complete reflects an attitude that it would not be solved by a simple specific algorithm. AI-complete problems are hypothesised to include computer vision , natural language understanding , and dealing with unexpected circumstances while solving any real world problem. [ 2 ] With current technology, AI-complete problems cannot be solved by computer alone, but also require human computation . This property can be useful, for instance to test for the presence of humans as with CAPTCHAs , and for computer security to circumvent brute-force attacks . [ 3 ] [ 4 ]
Computer science deals with the theoretical foundations of information and computation, together with practical techniques for the implementation and application of these foundations Computer science or computing science (abbreviated CS or CompSci ) is the scientific and practical approach to computation and its applications. A computer scientist specializes in the theory of computation and the design of computational systems. [ 1 ] Its subfields can be divided into a variety of theoretical and practical disciplines.

Knowledge representation (KR) is an area of artificial intelligence research aimed at representing knowledge in symbols to facilitate inferencing from those knowledge elements, creating new elements of knowledge. The KR can be made to be independent of the underlying knowledge model or knowledge base system (KBS) such as a semantic network . [ 1 ] [ edit ] Overview Knowledge Representation (KR) research involves analysis of how to reason accurately and effectively and how best to use a set of symbols to represent a set of facts within a knowledge domain. A symbol vocabulary and a system of logic are combined to enable inferences about elements in the KR to create new KR sentences.
