Abstract:

LATEX ("lah-tech"), developed by Leslie Lamport (and built on top of Donald Knuth's TEX) is the typesetting software used for most mathematical publishing today (and is also popular among computer scientists and physicists). Naturally, it can handle mathematical material such as $\zeta(x) = \sum_{n=1}^\infty \frac{1}{n^x}$ , but it has other virtues such as being freely available and well suited for highly structured documents. This talk will give an introductory tour of LATEX (and related tools such as BibTeX, for bibliographies), with an eye towards using it to produce a thesis.
