Typesetting in TeX

Wikipedia guide to Tex editing in a Wiki
Harvard's page on typesetting math in TeX
Please note that the \$ in TeX should be omitted in the wiki edit.

Some sample code

f(x) = y + z
$g(x) = \frac {z^{2 x}}{t + b_{j , i}}$

Textbooks

There is no required textbook for the course, but here are two good ones that would help you in your future career as an experimentalist:
