This comprehensive manual has been the standard introduction and complete reference for writing articles and books containing mathematical formulas for over two decades. If the reader requires a streamlined approach to learning LaTeX for composing everyday documents, Grätzer’s © 2014 *Practical LaTeX* may also be a good choice.

The *Short Course* has been brought up to date in this carefully revised fifth edition and reflects a modern and practical approach to LaTeX usage. New chapters have been added on illustrations and how to use LaTeX on an iPad.
