LaTeX #

LaTeX is a typesetting system, commonly used in mathematics, physics and computer science for writing technical papers, presentations, books and so on. I used it extensively during my mathematical education.

\(\LaTeX\), and other similar typesetting systems, are not “WYSIWYG” (what you see is what you get) editors like Microsoft Word. Rather, you type out declarative commands and let the typesetting engine handle placing everything on the page correctly. It takes a huge cognitive load off.

org mode’s native export gives great support for LaTeX from org mode - any org document can be exported easily to LaTeX.
