LaTeX is a high-quality Open Source typesetting software that produces professional prints and PDF files. It is intended to provide a high-level language that accesses the power of TeX, and essentially comprises a collection of TeX macros and a program to process LaTeX documents.

LaTeX Beginner's Guide offers users a practical introduction to LaTeX with plenty of step-by-step examples. This practical guide takes users through all the essential steps of LaTeX, right from installing LaTeX, formatting and justification to page design. Additionally, users will learn to generate bibliographies and indexes with ease along with management of complex documents.

Using this book, physicists will learn to use the TeXworks editor to compile documents, to design the page layout and create dynamic headers and footers, fine-tune the space of words, symbols and lines, to write sophisticated math formulas, to cross-reference objects such as figures, tables and equations, and to structure and manage large documents by splitting the input.

A practical book packed with fully explained examples, this hands-on guide is ideal for anyone, who is about to write mathematical or scientific papers, seminar handouts, or even plans to write a thesis. The book is out now and available from Packt. To read more about it, please visit: www.packtpub.com/latex-beginners-guide/book
