LaTeX “is a high-quality typesetting system; it includes features designed for the production of technical and scientific documentation”. Basically, LaTeX is a type of mark up software used to create journal publication-style documents and also used for creating high quality documents that contain mathematical symbols and numerical notation used across a variety of subjects, such as mathematics, computer science, economics and other STEM subjects.

Personally, I think anyone might benefit from integrated training and usage of LaTeX especially if they’re producing high quality documents! You can find out about LaTeX here: https://www.latex-project.org/
