# LaTeX & TeX Information

## LaTeX / TeX

TeX Users Group Home Page (TUG)

The Comprehensive TeX Archive Network (CTAN)

Latex/Tex resources page from Goddard Institute for Space Studies

A list of sites related to TeX, LaTeX, mathematics, and teaching from the software publisher MacKichan Software, Inc. This is a very extensive and useful list. Their own software is listed below under Graphical User Interfaces.

## Graphical User Interfaces

Scientific Word and WorkPlace, a popular interface to LaTeX for PC Windows and the Power MacIntosh. Student prices are available.

Lyx, an open software visual interface for Latex. It is available for Linux, PC/Windows, and Macintosh.

## MathJax

MathJax interprets LaTeX embedded in a webpage and then displays the compiled LaTeX output on that page. For example:

\[\begin{aligned} \dot{x} & = \sigma(y-x) \\ \dot{y} & = \rho x - y - xz \\ \dot{z} & = -\beta z + xy \end{aligned} \] \[(\frac{-b\pm\sqrt{b^2-4ac}}{2a}\] \[\mathbf{V}_1 \times \mathbf{V}_2 = \begin{vmatrix} \mathbf{i} & \mathbf{j} & \mathbf{k} \\ \frac{\partial X}{\partial u} & \frac{\partial Y}{\partial u} & 0 \\ \frac{\partial X}{\partial v} & \frac{\partial Y}{\partial v} & 0 \end{vmatrix} \] \[P(E) = {n \choose k} p^k (1-p)^{ n-k} \] \[ \frac{1}{\Bigl(\sqrt{\phi \sqrt{5}}-\phi\Bigr) e^{\frac25 \pi}} = 1+\frac{e^{-2\pi}} {1+\frac{e^{-4\pi}} {1+\frac{e^{-6\pi}} {1+\frac{e^{-8\pi}} {1+\ldots} } } } \] \[ 1 + \frac{q^2}{(1-q)}+\frac{q^6}{(1-q)(1-q^2)}+\cdots = \prod_{j=0}^{\infty}\frac{1}{(1-q^{5j+2})(1-q^{5j+3})}, \quad\quad \text{for $|q|<1$}. \]
