Introduction to Latex

Latex is a typesetting utility widely used in the academia, and wikis. It has been developed on the philosophy of helping the writer focus on the content instead of being distracted by the details of visualization. Based on a markup language the documents are constructed in plain text using typographical rules resulting in professional looking documents in PDF. In this hands on tutorial we will walk you through: 1. Construction and compiling of a Latex document; 2. Basic typography (Itemize, Enumerate, Italicize, Boldface, Underline, Color); 3. Math; 4. Figures; 5. References; 6. Bibliography

Prerequisites: None, but familiarity with Windows helpful.
