What is LaTeX
LaTeX is a document mark up system that is widely used for the production of scientific and technical documentation. It is very useful for writers who need to use complex equations in their writing. At some point during your studies you may be asked to write an assignment using LaTeX, or it may be strongly encouraged.
Information Services does not provide support for LaTeX, so all the resources listed here are external. For more help and guidance with using LaTex, we recommend contacting your School.
