MATLAB Resources

LaTeX and Windows

To LaTeX under Windows you will need 5 pieces of software, all of which can obtained without cost:

Once you have installed all necessary applications, you will use the Tex editor to edit your LaTeX document, and then you will be able to build and output it to any combination of dvi, ps, and pdf files.

LaTeX and Macs

To LaTeX on a Mac, download and install MacTeX.

Web based LaTeX 

There are also web based, platform neutral, services that will allow you to LaTeX without installing LaTeX software on your local machine.
Examples of these are Overleaf and Papeeria. There may be a cost involved with these services.
