Book Description

LATEX is a typesetting system that is very suitable for producing scientific and mathematical documents of high typographical quality. It is also suitable for producing all sorts of other documents, from simple letters to complete books. LATEX uses TEX as its formatting engine.

This short introduction describes LATEX2ε and should be sufficient for most applications of LATEX.
