Title: LaTeX Demystified: Typesetting Mathematics as a Professional
Speaker: Professor Edrey Goins, Purdue University
Date: Tuesday, October 16th
Place: BRNG 2275
Ever wonder how people create fancy documents using mathematical formulae? Are you planning to give a research presentation at a seminar using digital media? Will you need to present a professional poster at an upcoming conference? In this talk, we will share the inside tricks of how to develop said documents with ease.
In the late 1970's, Stanford University professor Donald Knuth invented a typesetting language for mathematical equations. He called this language 'TeX.' In 1984, Leslie Lamport added functionality to the language. He called this modified typesetting language 'LaTeX.' In this presentation, we cover the basics of LaTeX, showing how to typeset papers, reports, slides, posters, and letters using Purdue letterheads.
