Abstract: Both the quality of the results of TeX`s formula layout algorithm and the complexity of its description in the TeXbook are hard to beat. The algorithm is (verbally) described as an imperative program with very complex control flow and complicated manipulations of the data structures representing formulae. In a forthcoming textbook, we describe TeX`s formula layout algorithm as a functional program transforming mlist-terms into box-terms. This transformation is given in this paper.
