LaTeX (pronounced Lay-Tex) is a macro package originally created by Leslie Lamport for the document generation language TeX (pronounced like the tech in technology). TeX was created by Donald E. Knuth around 1970 in order to provide him with the necessary tools to produce his legendary The Art Of Computer Programming series of books (which are still being written) and various other books.
