LaTeX is a computer language for the creation of high-quality scientific and technical documents. In addition to structuring your writing in the usual paragraphs and sections, its features include mathematical equation typesetting, bibliographies and automatic numbering of sections, equations, references, tables and figures. LaTeX is built upon a lower-level typesetting language called TeX, and is open-source and free to use. It’s available in a number of packages that you can install on your own computer, and is most easily composed using a dedicated editor and interpreter. We recommend the following:
Macintosh: MacTeX + TeXShop
Windows: MikTeX + TexStudio
Snacks and drinks will be provided!
