  • (Wikipedia, 2009) ⇒
    • BibTeX is a tool for formatting lists of references. The BibTeX tool is typically used together with the LaTeX document preparation system. Within the typesetting system, its name is styled as {\mathrm{B{\scriptstyle{IB}} \! T\!_{\displaystyle E} \! X}}.
    • BibTeX was created by Oren Patashnik and Leslie Lamport in (1985). BibTeX makes it easy to cite sources in a consistent manner, by separating bibliographic information from the presentation of this information. This same principle of separation of content and presentation/style is used by LaTeX itself.
