What is LATEX?

LaTeX is a high-quality typesetting system which is widely used for document preparation in academics. Though it was invented for writing mathematics “beautifully” during 1985, nowadays, LaTeX is used not only to write documents in mathematics but also physics, computer science, engineering, economics, psychology, social and political sciences.

LaTex is preferably used for technical/scientific papers writing for journals by researchers, engineers and mathematicians at large. Over a period, LaTeX has evolved, and now it can draw complicated molecules in organic chemistry, list bibliography in various ways at the stroke of a feather. In contrast to Microsoft Word, LaTeX can handle large documents very easily.
