\section{Math Mode}
\TeX\ and \LaTeX\ are famous for their math typesetting
capabilities. Unfortunately they are often used in bad ways.
You can either inline short equations like \(k+1\) or refer to some
variable \(x\) we use in the larger equation
x = \sum_{k=1}^{42}\frac{k}{k+1}.
Whenever you are referring to some variable or other math construct in
the text \emph{always} do it in math mode. On the first sight
\emph{italics} and \emph{math mode} look similar, but they are not. Compare:
\verb|\textit{italics}|&\textit{italics}&\verb|\textit{math mode}|&\textit{math mode}\\
\verb|\(italics\)|&\(italics\)&\verb|\(math mode\)|&\(math mode\)
In an equation \(xy\) means multiplication of the variables \(x\) and
\(y\) (in school we would have written \(x\cdot y\) or \(x\times
y\)). Therefore in math mode each letter is written by itself, kerning
is not applied, ligatures are broken up, spaces are ignored.
If you have expressions that involve operators (or function names)
consisting of more than letter they normally are typeset in roman type
(an upright fashion).
\min_{x\in[0,\pi]}\left\{\frac{\sin x + \cos x}{2-\log x}\right\}
The common ones are predefined.
We recommend to use the \cmd{amsmath} package whenever you do
something slightly more complicated as it provides lots of helpers
e.\.g. to define your own operators like \(\cogsys\):
\cogsys_{\text{thesis}}(\text{me}) =
and also provides a \verb|\text| command to typeset proper text in
formulars that auto-scales as you can see. Please \emph{never ever}
just write text in math mode.
As you can see equations are numbered so that one can refer to
an equation, e.\,g. in equation~\label{eq:limexample} we show how
large \{ and \} are typeset.

\section{\LaTeX\ Introductions and HowTos}
There is a huge number of \LaTeX\ tutorials on the Internet, CTAN%
\footnote{The \href{}{Comprehensive TeX Archive
Network}} provides (among the vast amount of packages) a whole
\fhref{}{list of tutorials} (of
variable quality) in various languages. The
\citehreft{Oetiker_et_al:2001} aka “\LaTeXe\ in 139~minutes”
\parencite{Oetiker_et_al:2001} is the oldest still maintained one.
Add some useful introductions.
