Many conventions you are using in the typesetting of plain text are inappropriate to maths. LATEX goes a long way to help you along with the style. This handout assumes that you have already read the Advanced LaTeX document.

This book originally accompanied a 2-day course on using the LATEX typesetting system. It has been extensively revised and updated and can now be used for self-study or in the classroom. The audience is assumed to be computer-literate.
