Detailed Description:

LaTeX is a powerful tool for typesetting scientific documents, which is used for producing scientific documents of high typographic quality. It is an accepted format for submission to scientific journals, as well as many professional publishers. Its popularity stems from a history of flexibility, power and just ‘doing the right thing’. LaTeX automatically numbers your equations and figures and lays content out according to strict style rules so as to obtain a readable and polished finish.

In this course we introduce many of the LaTeX commands and concepts required to produce a reasonable scientific document of any length. It is very useful to start preparing any academic scientific document, such as papers, slides, exams, posters…
