This document is about Mathex, a software package that allows to embed Mathematica © macro expressions into a LaTeX document, combining together the power of the two systems. It works in this way: when You click F2 on your preferred editor, before of the TeX to PDF conversion, a pre-processor (written in the PERL language) call Mathematica, do the computation globally (i.e. treating the file as a single program) and replaces the macros in the final TeX. The macros should be inserted between the two conventional simbols <% ... %>, and can contain every valid Mathematica’s expression, or more espressions, separated by semicolon. As every expression and every graphics object get created everytime on-the-fly, the process can be slow.
