TeX & LaTeX

TeX is a typesetting system written by Donald E. Knuth, who says that it is “intended for the creation of beautiful books — and especially for books that contain a lot of mathematics”.

LaTeX is a document markup language and document preparation system for the TeX typesetting program. LaTeX and TeX are widely used in the academic world.

  • The Latin Modern (LM) Family of Fonts
    Projeto mantido pelo GUST, Grupo de Usuários do Sistema TeX da Polônia.
    As fontes Latin Modern são derivadas das fontes Computer Modern criadas por Donald E. Knuth e publicadas pela primeira vez pela American Matematical Society (AMS) em 1997. As fontes LM incluem vários conjuntos de caracteres baseados no Latino, a maioria europeus, mas também outros como Vietnamita.
    A família Latin Modern é constituída por 72 fontes texto, mais 20 fontes matemáticas. A família é distribuída na forma de um conjunto de fontes Postscript Type1 e conjuntos de arquivos de métrica TEX para diversas codificações de caractere. As fontes também estão disponíveis no formato Open Type (OTF), prontas para uso em processadores de documentos WYSIWYG populares.
    As fontes Latin Modern são lançadas sob a GUST Font License (GFL), que é licença livre, legalmente equivalente à LaTeX Project Public License (LPPL), versão 1.3c ou posterior.
