## Dean.Shyy What does LaTeX mean, and why are the letters "T," and "X" capitalized? one year ago one year ago

1. QuantumModulus

I researched this for a decent amount of time, and could never find a genuine answer. Hmm.

Well, the "X" isn't the letter "x." It's the greek letter $$\chi$$ (chi). As for the "T," I'm not sure.

3. QuantumModulus

Hmm. "TeX" came about before the the "La" was added to it, so that might lead to a more fruitful search.
