LaTeX is a document preparation system particularly suited for typesetting scientific texts, papers and theses.  LaTeX is ideal for producing structured  documents particularly those containing mathematics, tables, etc. This introduction will teach how to use an editor (TexnicCenter), create, compile and print a basic LaTeX document. We will learn how to structure the document, add tables, figures, etc. The different topics will be demonstrated with small examples and pointers to more advanced features will be given. Time for small hands-on  experience is provided.
