ABSTRACT

We have already begun to see how LaTeX works for presenting research results. This chapter gives you a more detailed and comprehensive introduction to basic LaTeX document structures and commands. It is not a complete introduction to all that LaTeX is capable of, but we will cover enough that you will be able to create an entire well formatted article and slideshow with LaTeX that you can use to dynamically present your results. In the next chapter (Chapter 12) we will build on these skills by learning how to use knitr to create more complex LaTeX documents.
