## LaTeX command itemize

The itemize command is used in LaTeX to create an itemized list. The elements of the list are introduced using the \item command, which may have an optional parameter.

itemize is used whenever a list of a few items is needed. Each element is introduced by a bullet symbol, which can be reproduced using the $\bullet$ command.

To customize the output of the itemize command, you need to change a few parameters of lists, such as the amount of horizontal skip at the beginning of the list, the vertical distance between list elements, etc. The interface to change these lengths uses the \setlength command in LaTeX

An example of usage of the itemize environment is the following:

\begin{itemize}
\item The first element of the list.
\item The second element of the list.
\item The third element of the list.
\end{itemize}
