The Alf Way to LaTeX
Chapter 1 Prerequisites
This is a sample book written in Markdown. You can use anything that Pandoc’s Markdown supports, e.g., a math equation \(a^2 + b^2 = c^2\).
The bookdown package can be installed from CRAN or Github:
install.packages("bookdown") # or the development version # devtools::install_github("rstudio/bookdown")
Remember each Rmd file contains one and only one chapter, and a chapter is defined by the first-level heading
To compile this example to PDF, you need XeLaTeX. You are recommended to install TinyTeX (which includes XeLaTeX): https://yihui.name/tinytex/.
