+ | One of the most useful programming languages is TEX, constructed by | ||

+ | Donald Knuth, and developed by Leslie Lamport into LATEX, the standard | ||

+ | for mathematical typesetting over the last 25 years. If you want to | ||

+ | be able to typeset your mathematical work, or even to typeset any of | ||

+ | your assignments, LATEX can be very valuable. | ||

+ | |||

+ | I will give a lecture/demonstration of elementary aspects of | ||

+ | the LATEX programming language. If you have installed a version of TEX on your laptop, bring it | ||

+ | along. On the MAC, install TEXshop. On machines running Microsoft operating systems, install MikTEX. Both of these versions | ||

+ | of TEX are freely available on the Web. |
