|LaTeX is a document markup language and document preparation system for the TeX typesetting program. LaTeX is widely used in academia for writing reports, thesis, journal papers, presentations and posters. This tutorial is an introduction to creating documents using LaTeX.
Users need to install TeXLive from http://www.tug.org/texlive, MikTeX (Windows, http://miktex.org/) or MacTeX-2013(MacOSX, http://www.tug.org/mactex/) on their laptops.
If you prefer not to install LaTeX, overleaf, formerly knows as writeLaTeX, (https://www.overleaf.com/) and ShareLaTeX (https://www.sharelatex.com/) are two resources that let you create, edit & share your latex documents easily online.
