Information about LaTeX

LaTeX is a typesetting language used to create modular documents that makes very pretty equations. They have a nice community of very helpful people if you run into questions about what they do.

  • Linux. If you're running a debian linux distro, such as ubuntu, or linux mint, it's very easy to get latex up and running. Simply install tex-live from the package repositories.
  • Windows. Download and install MikTeX. Then you'll need a text editor to write all your stuff. My favorite used to be TeXnicCenter, but I currently believe that TeXmaker is much cleaner for Windows platforms.
  • Macintosh. TeXShop simply rocks. You'll still need to install the back end stuff, which is included in MacTeX.
