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.

LaTeX/Page Layout LaTeX and the document class will normally take care of page layout issues for you. For submission to an academic publication, this entire topic will be out of your hands, as the publishers want to control the presentation. However, for your own documents, there are some obvious settings that you may wish to change: margins, page orientation and columns, to name but three. The purpose of this tutorial is to show you how to configure your pages. LaTeX/Text Formatting This section will guide you through the formatting techniques of the text. Formatting tends to refer to most things to do with appearance, so it makes the list of possible topics quite eclectic: text style, spacing, etc. If formatting may also refer to paragraphs and to the page layout, we will focus on the customization of words and sentences for now. A lot of formatting techniques are required to differentiate certain elements from the rest of the text. It is often necessary to add emphasis to key words or phrases. Footnotes are useful for providing extra information or clarification without interrupting the main flow of text.

Detexify LaTeX handwritten symbol recognition Want a Mac app? Lucky you. The Mac app is finally stable enough. See how it works on Vimeo. Download the latest version here. Restriction: In addition to the LaTeX command the unlicensed version will copy a reminder to purchase a license to the clipboard when you select a symbol. classicthesis This section is devoted to a template bundle which I developed for the typesetting system LaTeX. The first version of the template was released in early 2006. From the feedback and postcards I received so far, it seems to be in heavy use all over the world!

Open Learning Initiative Logic & Proofs[Enter Course] Overview: Logic is a remarkable discipline. It is deeply tied to mathematics and philosophy, as correctness of argumentation is particularly crucial for these abstract disciplines.
