\abstract{This is a very simple example of using \LaTeX\ for typesetting.
The procedure for typesetting equations is introduced.}
\section{A few equations}
Equations can be typeset inline like so: $\vec{F}=m\vec{a}$ .
Equations can also be separated form the text: $$ \vec{F}=m\vec{a} \ . $$
Notice the punctuation, the ``.'', had to be included with the equation.
Equations can also have a number assigned and a label attached,
as in the following:
\begin{equation}
\frac{D\vec{\omega}}{Dt} =
( \vec{\omega} + \vec{\Omega}) \cdot \nabla \vec{U}
+ \frac{1}{\rho^2} \nabla \rho \times \nabla p
+ \nu \nabla^2 \vec{\omega}
\label{vorteq}
\end{equation}
The vorticity equation (\ref{vorteq}) is referenced by label,
not by number. The numbers may change as the document grows and
more equations are added.
New paragraphs are indicated with a blank line in the source code.
