I was wondering if it would be a good idea to learn LaTeX for writing my graduate thesis. It would be helpful for me if you answer the following questions (any extra advice will be welcome).
The questions are:
Is it possible to import charts that i have in Open office, excel, etc?
Is there a special version of latex for writing mathematical formulas?
Is there any advice before being involved with it?
Do you know about webpages with simple tutorials?
