Public \\ 32 St. Thomas Place \\ Corning, NY} \date{January 20, 1995} \maketitle \begin{abstract} In this paper, we present {\em several} bits of formatted text which need to be figured out. This is part of the $1^{st}$ class in the intermediate series, or part of the last class of the beginning series. \end{abstract} One of the nicest things about TeX is its ability to handle math formulas. (It's actually easiest if you know what the formulas mean, but that's neither here nor there.) For example, an equation which includes $x^2$ and $\sqrt{y+3}$ is the following: \[ w_i^j = \frac{x^2}{\sqrt{y+3}} + \sum_{k=1}^{100} \xi^k \] which shouldn't be too difficult to typeset. \section{Background} \end{document}
