What is LaTeX?

Installation instructions for LaTeX products used in Wellesley coursework:

Prepare to set aside an hour of your time to install LaTeX. You should also be on campus or using a high-speed internet connection, since you will have to download a large file. You need to install two different parts, a LaTeX compiler customized for your operating system and an editor.

If you have any difficulty while installing the software, bring your laptop to the Help Desk in Clapp Library or email helpdesk@wellesley.edu with a description of the problem.
