Constantly-updated implementation of TeX and LaTeX, great for mathematics and formulae.

The download has been tested by an editor here on a PC and a list of features has been compiled; see below. We've also created some screenshots of MiKTeX to illustrate the user interface and show the overall usage and features of this tex editing program.

Constantly-updated implementation of TeX and LaTeX

MiKTeX (pronounced mick-tech) is an up-to-date implementation of TeX/LaTeX and related programs for Windows (all current variants).

TeX is a typesetting system written by Donald Ervin Knuth who says that it is "intended for the creation of beautiful books - and especially for books that contain a lot of mathematics".

A complete set of additions (programs, styles, fonts, etc) are available to help you typeset your documents.

The TeX output viewer Yap allows for an optimized edit-compile-view cycle (if the TeX authoring system in use supports source specials).
