What is LaTeX?
Leslie Lamport created LaTeX as a structured, high-level interface to TeX. Technically, LaTeX is a large macro package that loads on top of TeX. An advantage of using LaTeX instead of "plain" TeX is that LaTeX takes care of many stylistic details automatically; also, many people have written add-on packages for LaTeX that solve common typesetting problems. In particular, the American Mathematical Society has sponsored the development of a package named "amsmath" that simplifies the typesetting of complicated mathematical expressions.
