MiKTeX is an updated implementation of a utility called TeX and uses the TeX/LaTeX markup language. TeX is a typesetting system that was designed for creating books that contain a lot of mathematics. You should know that it contains a most sophisticated digital typographical system to convey complex mathematical formulae. Though it is mostly used by mathematicians, physicists, computer experts and quantitative psychologists, you don’t have to be a scientist to understand and use this program.

MiKTeX is very easy to install and you can get started immediately. After installation, you will see a user-friendly interface that you have to keep up-to-date by downloading the latest updates periodically; this will help you use it in a much better way. Miktex supports various TeX programs for Windows like jadeTeX, Omega, MetaPost, pdfTeX (see the Options image) and is now compatible with Windows 7.

MiKTeX also has a portable version so that you can use it when you are on the go but the only condition is that you should have a phone with a Windows operating system intergrated. It can be used to create new books that are based on mathematics.

This software is available free so you don’t have to pay a single penny for it. It’s great to have such software that helps you in your day-to-day academic writings.
