8 Environments

LaTeX provides many environments for delimiting certain behavior. An environment begins with \begin and ends with \end, like this:


The environment-name at the beginning must exactly match that at the end. For instance, the input \begin{table*}...\end{table} will cause an error like: ‘! LaTeX Error: \begin{table*} on input line 5 ended by \end{table}.

Environments are executed within a group.
