Using LaTeX

At the Applied Mathematics Department, students are encouraged to use LaTeX (pronounced /ˈleɪtɛk/) document preparation system to format their lab reports, term project reports, and theses.

To use this system, it is necessary:

  • to install its implementation. For Windows, there has been developed the MikTeX implementation. Since its basic version doesn’t include Cyrillic fonts required by the Department when preparing documents according to the SSTU 3008-95, it is recommended to download (~200 MB) a portable version of this implementation with the fonts integrated;
  • to install source files editor. Any open access editor can be used, e.g., TexnicCenter.

In this document (in Ukrainian), you can find information about installation process of both MikTeX and TexnicCenter.
