LaTeX for Beginners
LaTeX (usually pronounced “Lay-tek”) is a document preparation system and mark-up language used to create high quality documents such as books, reports and theses. One of its main advantages is in typesetting equations and symbols and hence is widely used in both industry and academia in mathematics, engineering and the sciences.
This course will provide you with an introduction to typesetting your own LaTeX documents and will be presented over two half-day workshops followed by exercises that you can complete both in the workshops and in your own time. This course will cover:
- an introduction to LaTeX and its implementation;
- further features of LaTeX;
- typesetting mathematics in LaTeX;
- creating presentations in LaTeX.
After attending this course you will attain an understanding of the mark-up language upon which LaTeX is based, and you will be able to produce your own documents and presentations.
