Introduction I remember when I first started hearing about Latex, I thought it was something new, but it is important to keep in mind that Latex has been around since the 80s! When thinking about picking up any new piece of technology, it's easy to be hesitant because you aren't sure if it will stick or be general enough to be worth your time learning it.
Latex has already stuck and it is extremely general. You will not regret learning how to use it if you spend any significant amount of your time preparing technical documents.
Despite seeming daunting at times, there is nothing to be afraid about switching over to Latex for writing technical documents. It instantly makes your writing immortal and forever editable which is advantageous over paper mediums which inevitably get lost or misplaced, and which become difficult to edit without rewriting from scratch.
Latex is designed for typesetting beautiful technical documents, a feature the equation editor in Microsoft Word or NotePad cannot boast. With Latex your writing starts off looking professional which makes the job of whoever will be reading your work much easier.
The first two sections will cover enough of the basics to get you to write your first document in Latex from scratch. From there, there are additional topics for more complicated things you may want to do when writing something.
The basics include the general Section, subsection model, how to enter equations, and how to turn your tex file into a pdf. Finally, I will say if after the next two sections you still feel intimidated by Latex, try using Lyx. Lyx is available on all of the Windows, Mac, and Linux platforms.
There is a short tutorial which comes with Lyx which will get you on your feet in about 30 minutes, and will help you to understand how to use Latex without being confused by the syntax.
Throughout the first few sections I will scatter tangential remarks about Lyx but for the most part it works like any other GUI, it gives you menus to navigate through so you can figure out how to tell Lyx to give you a Latex document how you want it without worrying about the Latex markup language.
And this document is not intended to be all encompassing! Google is your friend! Testing Your Installation and What You'll Need In general the installation methods described below will install a lot of additional software including editors specifically for LaTeX, but for the sake of simplicity this tutorial will focus on methods consistent across all platforms.
After following the platform specific instructions for installation, test your installation by checking to see if you have pdflatex installed. This means opening a terminal or command prompt and typing the following platform independent: Afterwards you should get output asking about the name of your input file or really just any output which isn't an error saying that pdflatex couldn't be found.
Installing everything you need to get started in a Linux based OS is extremely simple.
The preferred package is texlive. If you want the full texlive packages use it might take a while to download: At least for the basic tutorial, you won't need anything in the full package.
Also, if you later find that you want additional functionality, you can simply install new packages, which is covered later.
In windows the preferred Latex packages are from MikTex. For other more advanced methods see the link. Similarly, the simplest method is included here for completeness, but the address linked is a living document and more likely to be up to date.
Installing latex on Mac the easy way: It abstracts away the Latex syntax and provides the user menus to help figure out what they want. If you are frustrated with straight Latex, give Lyx a try.
It will help you see what is possible with Latex and has a somewhat more friendly learning curve.
Lyx is available for all platforms mentioned in this guide. The Basics Now we are going to go through the process of creating a simple latex document which will encompass all of the basic features you'll need to get by. First create a new tex file. Be careful if you are using windows and you haven't enabled the display of file extensions in the explorer window manager.EM algorithm manually implemented.

The Derivative Calculator supports computing first, second, , fifth derivatives as well as differentiating functions with many variables (partial derivatives), implicit differentiation and calculating roots/zeros. 1 Introduction. grep searches input files for lines containing a match to a given pattern list.
When it finds a match in a line, it copies the line to standard output (by default), or produces whatever other sort of output you have requested with options.
LaTeX-to-Word in 3 steps.
Step 1. Open your LaTeX document (*.tex) in Microsoft Word: on the File tab, click Open and then click Browse in the type list, click LaTeX [GrindEQ] (*.tex) and Open the document. Step 2. Update cross-references if needed: press Update button, or select Update command.
