Writing in LaTeX


LaTeX (pronounced Lay-Tech) is the standard document processor used for writing reports in physics and mathematics. It is unlike common document processors as it is built specifically for writing scientific papers. It provides easy equation editing and does automatic formatting, citing, numbering, etc, making writing lab reports much faster once the syntax is learned. For example to write something in italics, one would write "\textit{hello world}" and it would compile "hello world".

In this workshop, you will be using Overleaf to practice.
