The goal of this course is to learn how to use the tools allowing to write scientific documents of high quality. The LATEX typesetting system is universally used in the scientific and technical literature; it is based on the language TEX created by Donald Knuth.

You will write a short article using your own lecture notes from one of the courses you attend this semester. Your document should comply with the standards of the scientific papers: front matter, abstract, introduction, main content, conclusion, and references.

A reasonable, minimal, scientific computing environment might consist in:

A LATEX distribution (TeX Live, see the references at the end of this page)
An editor: TeXMaker or vim
A python programming environment (you may use Anaconda)
(preferably in a unix-like system!).
