Professional documentation is considered to be an integral component of the academic

world. One advantage of LaTeX over other documentation systems is that it can generate a high quality typographical document. This is particularly true for documents that are heavy on mathematical formulae, figures, tables, etc. This comprehensive guide for using LaTeX is designed in such a way that no prior knowledge of LaTeX or any other computing language is needed. The chapters include in-depth material on using LaTeX, such as installation, system commands, compilers, layout and formatting, using LaTeX for mathematics, journal creation, citations, Beamer presentation, thesis creation, and much more.
