TeX is one popular means by which to typeset complex mathematical formulae- it has been noted as one of the most sophisticated digital typographical systems in the world. TeX is popular in academia, especially in mathematics, computer science, economics, engineering, physics, statistics, and quantitative psychology. It has largely displaced Unix troff, the other favored formatter, in many Unix installations, which use both for different purposes.
It is now also being used for many other typesetting tasks, especially in the form of LaTeX ...
