This is a guide to the LaTeX markup language. It is intended to form a useful resource for everybody from new users who wish to learn, to old hands who need a quick reference. TeX and LaTeX TeX is a computer program for typesetting documents, created by Donald Knuth. It takes a suitably prepared computer file and converts it to a form which may be printed on many kinds of printers, including dot-matrix printers, laser printers and high-resolution typesetting machines. LaTeX is a set of macros for TeX that aims at reducing the user's task to the sole role of writing the content, LaTeX taking care of all the formatting process. The book is organized in different parts. Getting Started will provide you with the very first steps to print your first document: general concepts (very important!)

Who’s afraid of math? Study finds some genetic factors A new study of math anxiety shows how some people may be at greater risk to fear math not only because of negative experiences, but also because of genetic risks related to both general anxiety and math skills. The study, which examined how fraternal and identical twins differ on measures of math anxiety, provides a revised view on why some children -- and adults -- may develop a fear of math that makes it more difficult for them to solve math problems and succeed in school. "We found that math anxiety taps into genetic predispositions in two ways: people's cognitive performance on math and their tendency toward anxiety," said Zhe Wang, lead author of the study and postdoctoral researcher in psychology at The Ohio State University.

We will detail the process here. There are several situations where you might want to create a title in a custom format, rather than in the format natively supported by LaTeX.

Andrew Roberts Here are some tutorials I have written for getting up to speed with this excellent document processing system. Funnily enough I wouldn't consider myself an expert, per se, but I'm learning all the time. I recall finding it quite taxing when I started to learn LaTeX, which is why I have started these tutorials. However, I hope that my experience plays to your advantage because I cover sort of questions and problems I had when I first learning LaTeX which are probably typical for most beginners.

LaTeX:Layout From AoPSWiki This article outlines some of the basics of layout in LaTeX. Note: Rather than typing up all the examples, you can copy-paste the examples into your TeXnicCenter files. We highly recommend opening up your TeXnicCenter and trying out each of the examples as you go. It takes almost no time at all to just copy-paste, compile, and view the results. Source File Format
