# Introduction to LaTeX

Hello all,

Tomorrow is the Latex tutorial and a little preparation is required from you before you show up!

- Install Latex on your computer.
- Create a folder named “Latex Tutorial” and download in that folder the three documents attached to this email.

Here are the links that you will need during the tutorial:

- Intro: http://tobi.oetiker.ch/lshort/lshort.pdf
- Tikz: http://www.tug.org/pracjourn/2007-1/mertz/mertz.pdf
- PGFplots: http://www.bakoma-tex.com/doc/latex/pgfplots/pgfplots.pdf

I hope to see you all tomorrow!
